Chris Powell

Last weekend, I bumped into Chris Powell. He's the host of ABC's "Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition", a show that I have mixed feelings about but overall like. ;) The one thing that I am certain about with that show is that the trainer guy is ridiculous positive and appears to often get great results.

He was pushing a stroller, so I congratulated him on his new addition - two months old little guy. Adorable. ;) I talked to Chris for a couple minutes, telling him about my own weight loss journey and asking for tips. :D He said his top tip about healthy eating is to "Eat Whole Foods!" - avoid processed foods as much as possible.

It's always refreshing to meet someone who comes across as sincere and friendly on television - and they're exactly like that in person. All the best to Chris and his adorable little boy!

August steps

monthtotal stepsaverage steps per daynumber of steps ahead/behind of pace

Woo, look at me all caught up on my steps! ;)

However, I've started September with not feeling so great, so my steps this month so far are not so great. (I'm averaging 6,800 so far.) But hey, I'm just aiming for that 10,000 a day, and I could catch up to keep that average for this month. We'll see.

Weight, as usual, is staying the same.
