Fitbit-vs- Workout

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Yesterday morning, I headed out for a bike ride and walk.... it was a beautiful morning.... and I quickly discovered what happens when I let myself go two weeks (more or less a day or two) without a REAL workout.... especially when it came to riding my bike!!! I DID push on and managed to get a little over three miles on my bike, not wonderful, but okay... I also walked a little over five miles.... all in all a decent workout!!! (I've been getting my steps in with Fitbit, but my workout just reminds me that NOT everything is TRULY exercise!)) I'm getting ready to lace up my shoes and head out for another bike ride/walk combo.....

Have a great day!!!!

    emoticon Sounds like you are right on track! I envy your biking - I don't own one and even if I did, I would have to drive it somewhere to ride emoticon - kinda defeats the purpose...huh?
How do you like your fitbit? which one did you get? I love mine and have the clip on version (it fits inside a holder) but I would love the bracelet one.
Enjoy your day!

    Sounds like you did a very worthwhile workout. Don't overdue in the beginning or you will want to give up. Slow and steady! You are doing a great job!!!!

Tuesday...

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

I just heard on the morning news that Tuesday is the most depressing day of the week! How interesting, I would've thought Monday... anyway... today is a new day and a chance for each of us to do and be the best we can be no matter what that is!!! I'm going to start my day with a bike ride/walk combination... our storms yesterday lowered the humidity and temperatures! YEAH! Also plan on going back to summer school and helping out our HS teacher and students! (I kind of like NOT being in charge... just assisting students/teachers and going my way...) In years past I was paid to teach summer school and did so for many years, but once we started having grandbabies my priorities changed... now I just volunteer... a positive for everyone involved!
Have a wonderful day!

  In my opinion, it is not which weekday is the most depressing. It is in our own state of mind and reaction to it that makes us depressed.

    People place far too much significance on the name of the day of the week. What day would you have it be if you didn't know what day it was? Act like it's that day! To people who have Mondays and Tuesdays off, Wednesday is Monday and Thursday is Tuesday and Friday in hump-day. What's in a name, would not a rose by any other name smell so sweet? (I didn't make that uo, I heard it somewhere! LOL)

Make Today the Greatest Day of your life. emoticon

Monday..

Monday, June 17, 2013

It's Monday and the start of new week with unlimited possibilities for each and everyone of us! How much we do or don't do is completely up to us.... for me I'm going to drop by our summer school and see if any of my fellow teachers need a little help.... then who knows!

Enjoy YOUR day!

Father's Day...

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Happy Father's Day to all the dads and grandpas out there! I'm very blessed to have a husband who has and is a wonderful father and grandfather to our children and grandchildren! My own father passed away in an accident when I was a only 18 months old, but knowing his parents and siblings I KNOW that he was a wonderful man who loved all of his children and worked hard to provide for us! His dad was a wonderful man, who rarely left the family farm... I used to love to go the farm and walk out and find him on his old Farmall tractor, straw hat on his head...! Grandpa passed away several years ago, but his memory and the memories he and Grandma kept alive in my heart and mind will never fade!

Have a blessed day!!!
