Hello Monday!!

June 5, 2017

It’s going to be a full week and starting my Sunday off with a hot yoga class was the perfect way to get the week going!

I meal prepped yesterday, worked at getting in a lot of water and made mental notes about the rest of the week and the best times to get my steps in.

Today starts my first ever StepBet! I follow Amy at myjourney2goal on Instagram and she is doing a Step Bet that starts today and last for 6 weeks.

From Amy…..
“Here is how it works:
-You must have an Apple Watch or Fitbit to participate. -Pay $40 -StepBet calculates your step goals based on your recent activity. You have 4 active days, 2 stretch days & 1 “free” day. -The first week is a “warm-up” week so you don’t have to make your goals that week, though I highly encourage it!
-Everyone who makes their weekly goals splits the pot at the end!”

I was looking for new ways to challenge myself with my steps and I’m really looking forward to being a part of this challenge!

Have a great week!

Here are yesterday’s eats…..

Breakfast – 12 SP

Sweet Potato Hash with Chicken Apple Sausage topped with two Eggs. Bacon on the side.


Snack – 2 SP

Looking for a low point sweet treat? You know I love my nut butters.

Pear with 1 tsp Trader Joe’s Mixed Nut Butter, Cinnamon and 1/2 tsp Cocoa Nibs (typically found in the health food area of the grocery store)


Lunch – 10 SP

One Tortilla filled with Chicken Salad (but more salad than Chicken! I went a little overboard with the grapes and celery, but I do love the sweetness and the crunch!), Trader Joe’s Roasted Plantains and an Orange.


Dinner – 10 SP

I promise you that I have never made this Fall Chopped Salad and thought to myself….”Eh, dinner was okay I guess.”

Every time that I make this we both LOVE it!


Daily SmartPoints Total = 34

    Thank you. I think so too!


  3. Loved hearing about your new walking challenge. So in strict accordance to our “parallel lives” (lol!!) I’ve got to tell you about the walking challenge I started with our WW meeting group 3 weeks ago. Because its hotter than most people can imagine here in the desert during the summer, our population dwindles to almost nothing, its really hard to be motivated to walk because of the heat, so with our small little WW group that’s left, I challenged everyone to keep track of all miles walked during each week, we then add them together and see how far we can walk across the USA together during the 3 months of summer. I got a map of the USA, and we mark it with string of our Journey! It is super motivating and everyone is loving it! Don’t know if you are on connect, but we have a (small) group there under the hashtag: yuma road trip summer 2017 We are walking across Texas this week, and I put a shout out to your daughter, in case she wonders who the crazy woman is that tagged her – didn’t know which town she lived in, but we just might be passing thru her area! It IS great to have a challenge, have a great day! hugs, ronda

  4. The stepbet sounds interesting! Good luck!!!!
