New fitbit :)

A week or so ago, I received an AMAZING gift from Angela!

She had purchased a new fit to record her steps, calories, and sleep, and she sent me her old fitbit! I was thrilled. I have heard great things about them, and even have a few friends at work that will wear them.

I started wearing it just a few days ago, and while at home, I hardly get ANY steps. I get a lot done, but even working on the house, I don’t get many steps.

On Saturday, while working a 12 hour shift, I had a totally different result. (you can see in the steps and distance)

It was even a pretty slow day at work, but my steps were almost 8,000~

I am not so sure if the calories burned really add up, but it is defiantly motivation to get more movement throughout the day!

Sunday, I worked around the house (even deep cleaning the oven and refrigerator) but it doesn’t look like I moved as much as I thought. I will still be wearing this. and it can also sync up with my sparkpeople.com account, so I can get calorie diffs and all!

Question for you:

Do you or have you ever used a fitbit or something similar?

Just call me Rachael Ray

Ok not really. But yesterday I was REALLY in the cooking mood when it came to dinner. And it was SUPER easy.

First, I started out with broccoli and noodles on the stove, while cooking the chicken in the oven.

I swear there are noodles there. haha

Add the chicken

Then I googled “laughing cow cheese + pasta sauce” and got A SPARK RECIPE!! WAHOO

Which can be found here: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=230857

Then for dessert. I followed my heart to Peanut Butter. And well to the Peanut butter boy blog. (yep thats right!)

I found an awesome PB irish soda bread recipe, that was just SCREAMING my name. Anyway. It. Was. Pretty. Darn. Good. (remember soda breads arent very moist-thats how they are suppose to be)
