Shedding My Pirate Booty Week Six

This week I weighed in a day early because we are currently staying at a hotel and I didn't want to pack the scale. If you remember last week, I gained a pound and a half, but was sure this week would be better. I burned more calories that I have since starting this program. I credit that to my Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity Wristband. I sometimes question it's accuracy because I use my arms a lot at work, but I do walk a lot too. Right now I will trust the results, because the scale is matching up with it.

My FitBit stats for Sunday. 

Week Six Results:

Calories Burned Exercising: 3361
Net Calories Consumed: 10,074/12,600
Weight Lost:  -3.5 lbs, -18.5 lbs total
Current Weight: 209.5 lbs 

I'm thrilled with a big loss this week, especially since we are on vacation right now. I will still track and be mindful of my eating choices. However, we will be at Disneyland and Mickey's Halloween Party, with candy and sweets. I can't offend the mouse by turning down his treats, that would be rude. 

I will confess though, now that my #2WeekChallenge is over I haven't kept up the exercise routine. I keep meaning to, but then I forget. I will intentionally exercise 5 days this week, that's my goal. I'm counting the many steps I'll be walking at Disneyland as exercise
