A Treadmill for the Kitchen?

Tweet

Yesterday’s meal making woes didn’t propagate into today, mostly because lunch today is the same as yesterday, and I kept Milo around the kitchen so he wouldn’t keep barking at me. It still took a little too long, about 30 minutes to put everything together and get things entered into my tracking app, and the […]

Here Comes a Weekend

Tweet

And so Labor Day Weekend is coming, it’s a really hot Friday and that’s limiting my lunchtime walk, but it might be good as I have a feeling I’m going to need to rest up for a day of manual labor on Sunday.  It’s supposed to be cool, there might be mopping, fence repair, and […]

Up With the Sun

Tweet

With it being so hot here in the Chicago area lately, our dog, Milo, hasn’t been getting out as regularly as he should. And neither have I.  I mean, last week I did average 8,169 steps, or at least my Fitbit tells me so, but the only reason that really happened was because my wife […]

I Need Some Sleep!

Tweet

Yesterday I managed to get to 8,088 steps, beating my goal of 7,500 each day this week, and I have a feeling I’m going to have to borrow a few of those steps in the next few days as I’m running out of meaningless errands at a grocery store or hardware store (nothing like wandering […]

I Did It! 7,603!

Tweet

It wasn’t easy, and my wife thought I was nuts when I started walking aimlessly around the house, but as I was 700 steps shy of 7,500 yesterday, I couldn’t end the day on a down note, so there I was, walking into the kitchen, back into the living room, up the stairs, and then […]

Only 3,272 Steps Yesterday :-(, but I'm Okay with That :-)

Tweet

Okay, fine, I only took 3,272 steps yesterday, and my goal was 8,000, but, I think I needed it, and today I’m already up to 3,394 with our early morning taking of Milo to the dog park, so I think that today I should be able to hit the 8,000 mark. Yesterday, there was a […]

Here Comes the Heat

Tweet

Today might be the last day for a good, lunchtime walk for a few days as the weather forecasts all show heat warnings coming.  It sucks as I’ve been doing really well this first week in, getting back into the swing of things.  I see two options on the horizon (well, three if you count […]

Being a Furry is a Good Workout, but I Prefer the Term Mascot

Tweet

Yesterday things were off of the chart for me, and I’m feeling it today.  Yup, my Fitbit says I hit 13,256 steps and nearly 7 miles, but the thing my Fitbit doesn’t know is that most of those steps were done hopping up and down inside of an elephant suit.  Yes, for a few hours […]

One Step at a Time.

Tweet

I had a couple of goals yesterday, on my way to getting back to healthy again, and the first was to write a blog.  Yay!  I did that one right away, so that was nice.  The other was to use my Fitbit and see how many steps it says I took in what I would […]

Day 23: Really Quickly

Tweet

It’s day 23, here I am on my exercise bike again, and as my mind is a mesh of a billion thoughts this morning, I don’t really have anything to write for today. But, here I am, and maybe the next 13 minutes will help me clear some things up in my head!

This is my […]
