Sun Setting on 100 lbs

Weighed in last night down 3.2 lbs; just another 3.2 lbs to go and I'll have lost 100 lbs!  I was kind of surprised at the loss since I've been tracking my weight all week to see when to enter a loss for the DietBet.  I have a little bit of a loss Saturday morning and then more of one Sunday morning but none have been this big.  I think it's kind of funny that my official loss for the week matches my total loss for the DietBet. The rest of the week my weight's been higher.

For my Becoming the True You DietBet I've had several accept the invite on Facebook and G+ so I hope that soon they'll be signing up on the DietBet site.  I want to run a squat challenge along with the DietBet.  There are so many varieties of squats in existence!  Do you have a favorite or least favorite?  I didn't particularly care for the monkey squats in Jillian's workout since I didn't feel them in my legs.

The MapMyWalk app family sends out these weekly workout summaries; for some reason this week's was messed up but they corrected it.  Two walks are included for last week - my regular Wednesday one as well as the one I took Friday night along the canal downtown, waiting for a meeting.

I successfully completed the back to back Les Mills Combat - Combat 60 Extreme Cardio Fighter workouts this weekend.  I was lightheaded Saturday and kept having to stop.  I must've slowed down Sunday since I didn't get lightheaded but I burned more.

Someone responded on an Instagram post that the MapMyWalk app family isn't very accurate.  So I downloaded the Nike+ app to do a comparison.  Here are Friday's and today's walks.  Friday I started the MapMyWalk app first and today I started the Nike+ app first.


Both times MapMyWalk recorded more of a burn.  So which is really more accurate?  I don't know how to determine that.  Does anyone truly know?
I didn't purchase anything at the farmer's market today; I just did a walk by but nothing jumped out and said "buy me".
