Wow, it's September 2015
Was really surprised to notice that I haven't written a blog post for nearly a year. I think I've been doing mini blog posts on various threads of teams I participate in, and forget about my actual blog. :)
My regular physical is in a coupl... Read more
Once again I face the doctor's scale
And once again I am elated! I know I do this so rarely that I truly can forget the delight when the doctor scale shows a lower weight than my own scale. And yep, that happened again today. This is even with clothes (no shoes) so I'm trying to fi... Read more
I didn't get to 8,000 steps yesterday, but the walking and water numbers were met -- yay!! I consider that two steps forward, in spite of the bad pun.
Today is already going well -- water level met before 10 a.m. Steps are at 1,300 -- not g... Read more
Back at this
Haven't written here for a while, primarily because I was working and volunteering at our state fair, with no scale and little computer time available.
However, that did not stop me from watching my FitBit step numbers add up AND keeping an... Read more
The "uh-ohs" and "ups"
I sure am having difficulty getting active minutes to show on my tracker. I know it's not user error, so it's probably user omission. Of course it varies, but in general I'm doing stairs at work and home (thanks to water shut-off at work and lau... Read more
Well, my FitBit showed only one active minute for all of yesterday, though I can't understand why. I walked briskly to my car, I did some marching at home last night and I spent 30+ minutes mowing the lawn. Huh.
So, that means I start this ... Read more
OTTD -- (4) and (5) accomplished!
I wasn't able to blog much of the last several days due to travel and family obligations for an out of state wedding, but I thought about this often. I definitely got my 15 minutes of walking in for two 3-day streaks in a row. Lots of walking wh... Read more
Whew! I did it. Three of the "One Thing, Three Days" streaks accomplished. Again yesterday (heat, humditity outdoors and lots of desk work indoors) I had to work at getting the final "active" minutes to show on my FitBit so I could close out tha... Read more
Got my 10+ active minutes in yesterday, but it sure did take some silent talking to myself last night. Had 4 when I got home, and had almost decided that missing one day would not be that big of a deal.
And then I thought, what am I doing ... Read more
OTTD+++(1) and +(2)
Didn't get here yesterday to say that, yes, I've now done two of my "One Thing, Three Days" series of 10 minutes of walking a day. A 5K fitness walk on Saturday helped me complete the second one.
With some travel and a family wedding coming... Read more
Yes, I got in my library visit AND my ten minutes of walking. Thank goodness!... Read more
Well, I made my 10 minutes of walking yesterday, but I'm pretty sure it was by the barest of margins -- maybe even seconds. Even so, I will celebrate that my short streak remains unbroken and I am happy about the scale number this morning.

Yes! I did it. My first foray into "One Thing, Three Days" was a success. My "thing" was to walk 10 minutes in a day, and three days later I'm happy.
No, ten minutes a day is not my ultimate goal. I do recognize that I need to start with sm... Read more
Yes, I accomplished my ten minutes of walking yesterday, and yes, it felt really good! Not necessarily getting to mentally check off that number, but the actual walking itself. It didn't hurt that our temperature was in the low-mid 70s with a br... Read more
The only way I can be accountable to myself is to be public, or at least as public as this blog is. Yesterday I accomplished my ten minutes of walking. Seven minutes here, 5 or 6 there, more later, it added up. And although my day total was more... Read more
