I've been doing challenges via my Fitbit and the challenges really do help me to keep my steps up, not because I want to win so much but because I don't want to be at the bottom. I've been happy being in the middle - until yesterday! I was doing... Read more

Just got my son a fitbit because they need to have proof of his activity for gym class with distanced learning. His response was "great, something else to fail at." I think it is going to be a surprise for him to see how well he actually does wi... Read more

I've started doing fitbit challenges as motivation. I've done several now. The first one we had a pretty wide spread of walkers and I was in the middle. The second one, I was the most active, but felt bad beating the others. This week, I'm doing... Read more
Heading into the Weekend
Friday, October 02, 2020      3 comments

I managed to meet my goal of 12,500 steps all 5 days of the workweek. Weekends are harder, but I'm hoping to keep going for the weekend. It's just harder to get the goal when I don't have to run around so much. I'm going to try and get plenty of... Read more

I have got to start thinking things through in a positive light. I got up this morning and had my weekly weigh-in. I'm down another .6 lb which puts me at about 8 pounds (I say about 8 because I don't really know what weight I was when I first s... Read more

"Time" to Workout
Monday, September 21, 2020      2 comments

I was not working for most of this year ((March - late August). You would think that I would have used the time to workout more, to get more stuff done. I did get some stuff done, but not when it came to me. I kept thinking about it but not doin... Read more

So I was out with my eldest today so I ended up eating way too many calories, but on the other hand I managed to walk over 11,000 steps AND went pedal boating so, hopefully, the day will be a wash.... Read more

As much as I still want to make my 60 lb goal by Dragon Con, instead I'm going to focus on smaller goals. I've gotten past the 240s, the 230s and the 220s. I'm soon to get past the 210s and then I'm going to be pushing to get into One-derland. ... Read more
