Day 6 of the 30 Day Challenge

I weighed in this morning for a sneaky peek ( I am officially weighing in on Sunday mornings) and I have lost 3.4 pounds this week. It was just the boost I needed to plan out todays meals and calories and to get my workout in while the Monkey is at Grammy's house...yay!

In other exciting news, I am getting a bodybugg for Mothers Day! I am super excited, it will be a great way for me to be accountable to exercise and activity, something that I struggle with that I KNOW contributes to my weight issues. The main time frame when I gained weight was after I stopped dancing 15 hours a week, I ate the same and moved a lot less and it caught up with me, quickly. If you have not heard of the body bugg you can check it out here

This is what the contestants wear on The Biggest Loser to track all calories burned...even when you are just sitting around. To lose weight it is just math (as Barb from BABES says) you have to burn more calories than you take in. The bodybugg will help me do that and know exactly how much I need to take in versus burn. It was between a Wii Fit and the Body Bugg and Rob and I both felt like the Wii Fit would become a novelty in just a few months so we went with the body bugg. And no we are not paying full price, we found it on sale and I am getting an unexpected bonus next week. Most of it will go back into savings but Rob was so sweet to be sure that I got something great for my hard work and for Mothers Day!
