woke up to a white world yesterday, so instead of the morning run, we went for a walk in the snow. wore the fitbit for the first time, and by the time we were home, it thought i had climbed 34 flights of stairs because of the hills in our area! i have to get used to a new mindset when it comes to fitness minutes, because the fitbit tracks everything and sends the info to spark. no more entering the mileage for the walks and runs separately. instead, it promotes the idea that any exercise is good exercise. i think that only the "fairly active" and "very active" minutes get transferred, but the more steps, the more minutes, the better. it's kind of like accepting that the galloway run walk method is the right way to go - even if you are not running the entire way, you are still running, in my case faster, happier, and healthier.
nutrition was not the best yesterday - lunch was quick leftovers from the night before, pasta with tempeh in the porcini sauce, which was fine, but by mid afternoon i came home starving and by the time i finished the mid afternoon snack, not as many calories left as i would have liked for a restaurant meal. we went to a really nice place for dinner to celebrate my birthday (i believe in celebrating all week, if not all month:-), and although i had mainly vegetables in one form or another, they must have had a fair amount of salt and/or oil, because today's weight is really up. so the focus today will be clean eating...
my ST streak continues - i like the short SP videos, did the crunchless abs. and i am still tracking miles of walking and running, and yesterday we broke the 1000 mile barrier for the year for miles walked! we have walked more, but i did not track in february at all.
