Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name is Angela. I am a scientist, wife, cat-mom, and fitness enthusiast. This page is my personal blog, and you will find a range of topics, centered around healthy living. Why “The Chicken Scoop”?  Well, when I started this blog, we had just gotten a small flock of chickens and the name just stuck!  I hope you enjoy your visit!

30-By-30 Week 12


Weight – 178ish?
I forgot to weigh myself today but last time I checked, it was 178 point something which is slightly down.  Of course, I generally hover around 179-181 so we shall see if this sticks.  It could have just been because I was sick all last week.

This is actually one thing going really well!  Here is a sample:


Never perfect – there is free pizza and more ice cream that I probably should have, but overall, I think I’m doing an 80/20 split or better of healthy verses not-so-healthy calories.  I’m pretty happy with this week!

Fitness – Walking while Sick
Right now, walking is enough.  I have a cold/allergies/something right now so just walking around is a ton of effort and causes my heart rate to get up.  Yesterday, I had to take breaks on the landings getting my classroom on the 4th floor.

Things I Did Well

  1. Tracked my food on my new app (blog to come next week!).
  2. Exerted myself as much as I could.
  3. Remembered that it is okay to relax when sick.

Things To Work On

  1. Drink more water (always a problem for me!).
  2. Less ice cream.
  3. Think up some easy, quick meals for days I don’t want to cook.
