I started this journey early in the year. I didn't start on New Years Day. I dragged my feet a bit. I started too many journeys on New Years Day that ended somewhere other than my destination! This time was going to be different...and realit... Read more
Fitbit help???
Tuesday, June 03, 2014      6 comments

I have had a fitbit for some time. I usually count my steps and am good with that number. However, now I am doing this virtual walk thing and I am setting a lofty goal of walking 7/5-8 miles per day. Yes, I said WALK, not run. Anyhow, ye... Read more

Friday we ordered out lunch at work. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich w spinach and skipped half the bread. Saturday I had a planning committee meeting for a women's retreat at 10am. I got up early, got my two miles in on the treadm... Read more

I had a meeting to go to today with a group of legal administrators from other firms in our area. I decided to wear a dress. I usually don't wear them in the winter - or really even in the summer. Reasons I don't? I have a zillion. I fe... Read more

I can't say I am a total slacker. I just have issues with consistency. I dive right in and for the first week it is near perfect. Week two, I let go of a few things here or there and tell myself it's ok, those things aren't really important. ... Read more
I survived!

I survived my trip to the oral surgeon - although 2+ hours in the chair caused a bit of anxiety in my head! The tooth is out, a bone graft was done, so now it is healing time. Six stitches and some swelling - and a big, tender space where my t... Read more

Ten more days and I will be stepping onto Mr. Scale. I am working hard to gain his approval. I have been walking up a storm. I have had over 20,000 steps on my fitbit a couple times in the past 4 days. I've been getting up early and hopping ... Read more

I had a healthy breakfast and lunch. I had my granddaughters after work until 9pm. We had pizza for supper. I had one slice (honesty part - it was a large pizza so one slice probably is like two slices of a small pizza - but still tha... Read more

I haven't been to the y this month. I have been opting to walk outdoors, or on my treadmill, and do workout videos and some kettlebell work at home. I am paying for a Y membership I haven't used. Why? It's easier to work out at... Read more

I spent most of the week on track. I had one night where my steps fell short of the 10,000 goal, but most other nights I exceeded it. I was a little concerned about the weekend with Mother's Day but decided to celebrate and just do the bes... Read more

Got out for my noontime walk. Instead of sitting on my butt in the lunch room, I walked 2 miles. It was a bit gloomy and threatening rain, but I pushed on. My dear deer friend was closely watching me as I walked past. ... Read more

Let's see. Friday I broke a crown on my tooth. My dentist was out of town for a family funeral. The tooth really isn't sensitive, but it has rough edges and throbs when I bite down on stuff. Silly me, I will forget that it is broken until I ... Read more

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 ... Read more
April showers.....
Thursday, May 01, 2014      7 comments

Well, just like the weather here in Michigan, my April was a bit dismal. As far as reaching the goals I set for the month, none of them happened. I wasn't a total slacker. I had some good days, but overall, there were more bad days. Yikes! ... Read more

Me? I'm doing better. Got on my treadmill and did 3 miles yesterday. Found myself a few hundred steps short of 10,000 at 10pm. I made the mistake of turning on a 10pm tv show and told myself during the commercials I would walk around the hou... Read more
