|Three Flavor Salmon from Indochine in Tacoma|
I missed my weekly Sunday post yesterday. We had a Little League make-up game (from Saturday's rain outs), and another baseball practice, and an annual event at a friend's house. Quite a combination. While I was at the dinner event my phone rang and I had to go in to work for an emergency. My life is good, but it's like that these days. Seven days a week.
The good news is that I've used the My Fitness Pal calorie counting app on my Android phone for two weeks and I've lost four pounds. I can't believe how easy it is to use and it's a great feedback loop. I've set it for losing two pounds a week, so it has me going for a 1,000 calorie deficit. I don't always get there, but even when I haven't it has me thinking about my choices and learning. Great feedback. Thanks for your suggestions when I asked about calorie apps.
A highlight was Saturday night at a fantastic Thai restaurant in Tacoma. I've always had noodle dishes in Thai restaurants, but I went for the Salmon. It was DELICIOUS. And not as many calories as most things on the menu.
Last thing and then I've got to go to bed...my wife and I put in our final training on Saturday for the Big Climb this coming Sunday. I got in 1224 stairs, really close to the 1311 in the event. I'm SORE today, but again confident that the event itself will go well. Shannon's doing even better. She did 1428. My kids haven't been training, but they have the advantage of youth. Oh, to be a kid again!
