End of Week 42

24 Oct 2011 182.9 lbs
17 Oct 2011 183.4 lbs
10 Oct 2011 183.6 lbs
03 Oct 2011 182.8 lbs

Half pound loss. Not bad considering I was attempting to stay on plan as much as I could, when I could while at Food & Wine Fest. There were a couple days (especially near the end) where staying on plan was next to impossible. Lunch at Kona was probably the best I've done without resorting to eating salads. I had the teriyaki steak which came with two 1/4 cup scoops of sticky rice and a half cup of mac salad. All things very measurable. I ended up eating all of the mac salad (I know!) and leaving 2/3 of the sticky rice for Sean who can have about 43 points a day.

I did a LOT of walking. Not so much on the travel days but I did get my minimum 9,000 steps in. Other days I walked anywhere from 17-27,000 steps. Seriously. My legs hurt every day for most of the first half of the week. I didn't want to walk near as much on Thursday. I actually started to fall asleep on the bus to the Disney Hollywood Studios (where I would often start my steps from the bus queue over to EPCOT via Boardwalk and Crescent Lake. That usually got me my minimum pretty quick and is a an easy walk over mostly flat surfaces. The "hills" are where the walkway slopes upwards/down to the International Gateway or along the bridges that connect the paths to the Yacht & Beach Club or the IG or Swan/Dolphin.

One thing I *know* I'm not accomplishing is walking 20k steps a day at home. I really need to do the "Walk it Out" again or the free run on the WiFit (that way I can have the news or something on while I'm exercising).

Sean said he didn't do too well (I must say he had less opportunity to get steps in what with it being a WORK trip for him.. I assume they are all sitting at those conference tables and desks). We ate a couple late night meals (anything after 7pm is late IMHO) so there wasn't as much chance to walk it off or process it during sleep. He was 227lb this morning which is a 5lbs gain.. but.. I'm sure it's just a temporary setback. Goodness knows I've had plenty of those! (not to mention I've been living on a plateau this past month).
