Jesus said, Love one another as I have loved you.

�The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.� The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, and none of those who take refuge in Him will be condemned� (Psa 34:18�19, 22).

Every day I am on the verge of making slight changes that would make all the difference in my life.

One day I won't be able to do this, but today is not that day

I am going to decrease my daily goal to 20,000 steps per day and my weekly goal to 140,000. I have been unable to consistently reach 25,000 steps so I need to lower expectations. I am not giving up, just re-adjusting. My goal is to continue keeping my Active Minutes above 150 minutes per day. I will also be tracking my mileage with my goal to walk 10 miles per day. I will also be tracking my floors climbed but as I don't really encounter many floors in my travels I will be interested in seeing how high I can get this number on a daily basis. Keep moving people, I know I will! DON'T GIVE UP!!!

OUR THREAD CONTINUES TO GROW EACH WEEK!

IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED THAT OUR MEMBERS WHO JOIN THIS THREAD USE THE EDIT FEATURE ON THEIR INITIAL ENTRY.

An easy way to find your initial entry is to hold down the CTRL key and your F key. This will bring up your FIND box. Enter your SparkName and hit enter. This will take you to your first entry. Click on the EDIT MY POST button and add your steps for that day. Then just click on the POST MESSAGE button and you have edited your entry!

A BIG THANKS TO ALL OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN USING THE EDIT BUTTON WHEN YOU POST!!!

I continue to be very impressed by your daily steps! emoticon

I love all the activity on this thread! Welcome to each and every one of you and I hope that you accomplish your goals this week. I WOULD LOVE TO GIVE A BIG THANKS TO ALL WHO JOINED THIS THREAD THIS PAST WEEK! We were an amazing 33 strong this past week! That is one more than last week. I continue to be amazed at your step counts, all of you should be very proud of yourselves! emoticon emoticon emoticon

We are still #1 in the Computer & Electronics category?! That continues to be amazing! As of the posting of this post, we are now at (drum roll please!) 125,351 members strong! That is 138 more than last week! Compared to last week's membership increase, that is 9 less new members. We have pushed through the 125,000 barrier and now are slowly marching towards the 126,000 level. Wow!
emoticon Holy moley!

On the news front, the alleged new FitBit product, the Charge 3, is no longer a rumor. It has been rolled out for orders and FitBit is now fulfilling orders. As mentioned in past weeks, the new fitness tracker no longer has a physical crown, it has a larger screen, is swim-proof, has a longer battery life, and now received multiple smart phone notifications. The device is available at the cost of $149.95.

emoticon Welcome to all of our new team members and thank you for joining our weekly steps goal!!!

I love my Ionic watch. This past week my Ionic watch's step count was 688 less steps than my One or -0.4% difference. I was attempting to transfer some music to my watch and apparently this is a major battery draw as my watch twice almost went down to 0% power. I think the issue is when the watch searches for a network. Whenever I ask the watch to do this I notice my power numbers decline much more quickly than when the watch is just being a watch. I did notice this week that for the vast majority of the week the watch and my device were very close to matching. It was almost eerie at times! emoticon

I still continue to lose more weight. I attribute my recent weight loss to a change I made in my eating habits. I love to eat and I never seem to get full. I have to make a very conscious effort to monitor my calories on a daily basis. I begin my day with a light breakfast, some milk and some type of egg sandwich. At work, I don't eat during my breaks, instead choosing to use this time for walks inside our building. I listen to podcasts or music and use my phone to catch up on emails, read, and play games. I find this is very helpful in achieving my daily step goals since I stopped attending the gym (Due to a recent lifestyle change). I drink 6-9 cups of water during the day and eat my "lunch" in the evening. I will have a small dinner later in the evening. I have been also trying to get to bed earlier so this change has definitely helped, too. All of this has resulted in a noticeable drop in my daily calories and my relationship with food. I have literally cut close to 1,000 calories on a daily basis (and sometimes have to push myself to hit 2,000 calories! This is a good change and one not certainly for everybody (or anybody in fact) but it appears to be working for me.
UPDATE: I continue with following this radical plan and it continues to work for me as I am losing more weight. I have dropped 34 pounds in the last eight months! Also, I have done some further research into this new lifestyle of mine and think my method can be classified as fasting. Now I am not starving myself, I am merely choosing to stay away from food for a certain period of time. I am still getting all of my necessary nutrition on a daily basis. I am really loving this lifestyle.
UPDATE TO THE UPDATE
I am truly amazed at how this change in eating habits has positively affected me. I have plenty of energy, find myself sometimes "forcing" myself to eat, and getting much more sleep. While my initial foray into the healthy living world back in 2009 was life-changing, this intermittent fasting lifestyle has been life and mind-altering.

Here are some articles that I ran across this past week that I found interesting/inspiring/informative. Enjoy!

This interesting article talks about the perception that fast food is cheaper that food purchased at a grocery store. That is certainly not the case as this article clearly points out.

This inspirational read talks about how to find inspiration in your temptations:

Finally, this informative article talks how aerobic exercise is not just limited to working out in a gym:

Hope you gain knowledge and inspiration from these articles.

Once again and especially as we enter summer, it is of greater importance to keep yourself hydrated. Here are some links to articles that address the importance of keeping your body hydrated.

One more week in the books! This past week I took a grand total of 157,511 steps for a daily average of 22,502 steps. I was active for 962 minutes this week or an average of 137 Active Minutes per day. I traveled 84.36 miles for a daily average of 12.05 miles per day and I climbed 33 floors this past week. I am ready to move on to next week, hopefully it will be less windy!
