Personal Information:
www.fitbit.com/user/42744H
My fitness tracker is not connected with my calorie adjustment. If I'm exercising too much, I'll adjust it manually. I think fitbit calories are overstated.


Other Information:
I have a chronic bad ankle - I am unable to do any running. Walking and hiking are OK. Riding a bicycle is fine.
I work full time as a bookkeeper. I use a stand-up desk so that I'm not sitting all day.

    Happy June,
    What does it mean to you?
    For me, I embrace the longer days, I get to put in my vegetable garden and grow food.
    I am in awe of what one tiny little seed can do in such a short span of time.
    Each and every one of us are Seeds..
    our thoughts are the seed,
    our belief puts it into action
    our thoughts and choices day by day bring to us what we desire.
    What do you desire?

    AS you begin to love yourself, you will find that pain and suffering are only warning signs you are living against your own truth. Choose your thoughts, you get more of what your thinking about.
