Day one down!!!

Friday, May 02, 2014

So met all of my daily goals yesterday. Ended up with 13,000+ steps on the fitbit. I was content with my efforts! I wanted to see if Mr Scale approved, but I didn't go there!

I was a bit worried about today - meeting an old friend who I haven't seen in a bit. We were going to hook up at a local restaurant after work, have dinner and chat. I worried that if we chatted too long, I would be on the ol treadmill in the late hours trying to get my 10,000 steps in!

I got up early and did a mile and a quarter before work. I planned on walking during the lunch hour but it is a bit breezy, cold and drizzling on and off - so I opted not to walk. I have almost 6,000 steps as of now - so I thought I'd be able to get another 1,500 just in my normal activity - which would leave me to doing a mile and a half around 9pm.

Much to my surprise, my friend texted and asked if I would mind meeting at the pool at the Y and we could sit along the ledge in the pool and do some pool exercises while we talked. Yippee!!! So no eating bad temptations AND a little exercise, even if it isn't hard cardio, it will be moving! Sometimes I love my friends!

Have a great weekend everyone - and someone please send some sunshine to Michigan!!!

    Dear Barb,

    It is great when plans change to healthier options. Our sky was full of clouds and at times it was breezy here in South Western PA, thankfully no raindrops.

    Enjoy spending time with your friend and have a healthy weekend! Remember to stay focused on your goals. Great job avoiding Mr. Scale!

    Wow, a friend with like-minded goals! How awesome is that! And if they are sending it to Michigan, maybe it can shine over Chicago too? Really a bit dreary...
    Have an awesome weekend Barb!
