Junk Food, how I love thee

First things first, I lost 2 lbs!  I find it so amusing the way my weight loss works; for the most part I plateau for about 3 weeks then drop 2 or 3 pounds over the course of the next week or two before holding steady again.  This used to drive me crazy but now I just kind of know the cycle so I don't stress as much.  Although the drop could also have something to do with the fact that I'm walking A LOT more then usual too...
1. Eat out less then 20 meals:  I didn't eat any meals out on Thursday but I did eat a bunch of sweets.  We had a going away/birthday cake for 2 of my coworkers.  5 meals total. 
2. At least 25 days with a 750+ calorie burn:
     Breakfast: watermelon & granola bar = 281 calories
     Lunch: cantaloupe, greek yogurt & smartfood = 376 calories
     Dinner: chicken & broccoli = 158 calories
     Snacks: strawberry shortcake & gelati = 443 calories
     Totals: 2193 burned - 1258 eaten = 935 total burned, 6 days total 
3. Complete 1500 fitness minutes:  I didn't do any actual working out, it was just to darn hot.  237 minutes total.

4. Walk at least 10,000 steps for 25 days:  I was super low on steps at about 8pm so we decided to walk to Rita's for water ice with Lou & Nicole.  But even after walking there and back I still had about 2000 steps left so Joe and I walked back over to ShopRite and picked up a few things.  In the end I had to fold a load of laundry and put it away before going to bed to cross the finish line.  10012 steps (can you tell I was watching the numbers then hopped in bed).  8 days total.
5. At least 25 days with 30 minutes of house work:  My cleaning was spread out again.  I cleaned the bathroom a little in the morning and did some laundry before bed.  6 days total.
