So you all know that crossfit has been a pretty major part of my life for the last six months. Add in the Paleo and Gluten Free Diet, and I am pretty proud of a 31 lb. loss and many inches lost.
Sometimes I don't see the change, but then someone close points out even my face looks different!!

However, I keep hitting these plateaus. I've read that a pound of fat is the size of the grapefruit while a pound of muscle is the size of a tangerine. I am patient and know when I continue to workout, even if the scale does not budge, my looser clothing tell the real story. So I keep on keeping on.
Add muscle, lose fat.
Good news? I finally have managed to fit in clothes that didn't fit seven years ago!!
|Yes this dress has been hanging in my closet--tags on--for 7 yrs!!|
So I still have 50-60 lbs to go, but one gadget that is helping is the super cool Fitbit Zip / Wireless Smart Fitness Technology that AT&T Seattle gave me the opportunity to try out recently.

So exciting...and illuminating.
While I work out intensely, I was not even close to getting in the recommended 10,000 steps a day. Talk about overestimating my daily activity. Eek! I started to fix that...

What's cool is with the Fitbit app, you can use your AT&T smart phone or tablet to track your activity stats, log calories, and even monitor other health measures like weight and BMI. It even lets you set goals and tracks how close you are to reaching them!!
Then I saw that I could hook up with friends with their own Fitbits on the Fitbit App and...

Oh my, did my competitive side arise!!
It. WAS. on.
In a rolling seven day period, I could compete and stroll past friends across the county. Fifty thousand steps...pashaw! Make it sixty thousand!
So there is a downside? If you can call it a downside...
The Fitbit Zip is so lightweight and streamlined that I'd forget I was wearing. It would get lost in the laundry. Lost in the coat closet. Yep, lost on my nightgown because dang if I wasn't going to get credit for those steps from the bed to the toilet! Ha!
So I am still looking for it ...EVERYWHERE...cannot let my friends get so far ahead!! Arrgh!!
In the meantime, why not get your own??
