I know I posted the schedule for the weekly weigh-in last week being on Monday. Yesterday I had two issues though that kept me from doing a weekly weigh-in and will continue to delay the normal weigh in. First, yesterday when I went to weigh myself I got five different weights, varying as much as 8 lbs. I had planned to go out and look at new scales but I got a call in for work. This week’s official weekly weigh-in should happen either tomorrow or the next day. However, here is a summary of my weekly activities.
I currently have a scale that uses the Weight Gurus system. I got it because it promised wireless smartphone weight tracking. What it didn’t say was that this was via taking a picture of the screen. The scale when it comes to weight has never worked that well. The picture capture feature for the weigh in is difficult to capture depending on the lighting of the room. The lighting needs to be just right to prevent glare. I have been thinking of getting a new scale for a while now and getting a “smart” scale probably won’t happen this time.
On to Normal Weekly Weigh-In Stuff
I was down in step count a little bit due to injuring my back on Saturday the 15th, but all of my low days were higher than previous low days which was nice. I feel like while I didn’t achieve the level that I could have I improved on my daily overall levels. I will be pushing even harder this week.
What I am happy to notice is that my duty belt at work is now looser than it used to be. It will yet again be time to tighten it up. My regular belt is also one hole shorter. This is some of the best motivation that I have been able to get during my journey to a better me.
Over the weekend I participated in another Weekend Warrior Challenge with my Fitbit. Unfortunately, I came in second place. I am not unhappy about it and the group of people I have found on Fitbit have been very motivational, sharing encouragement regularly. It doesn’t hurt that I was about 10,000 steps above the closest person to me. Groups like this are great! I hope to continue to find more people like this on Fitbit.
I managed to get out on Sunday and find a couple of Geocaches too. I will post those later in the week with a Geocaching update.
In summary for the weekly weigh-in so far, it wasn’t a bad week but it wasn’t the best week. All that can be done is to have a better week though!
