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 […]

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 Think 7,500 Steps is a Starting Point

Tweet

I know the Fitbit people want you to do 10,ooo steps a day, but as I went through my initial week of really paying attention, my goal this week, especially with the swampy weather here in Chicago this week, I’m shooting for 7,500.  It’s not that last week was bad, most of the days were […]

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 […]

Yup, I Need to Weigh My Food. For Awhile.

Tweet

So yesterday I went for a 45 minute walk, and a short walk with Milo, and scored 10017 steps for just over 5 miles according to my Fitbit.  It was hard.  Okay, it wasn’t that hard, but the 45 minute walk is a tough go every day.  As I analyze today, with maybe a shorter […]

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 […]

Well, That Didn't Work.

Tweet

And so, with my lack of posts for a while, it appears my getting on the exercise bike for just 15 minutes a day for 30 days didn’t work.  I could make excuse after excuse but the honest answer is that I just didn’t do it.  But as we get upon a New Year, yup, […]

Has Anyone Seen My Gumption?

Tweet

I know I haven’t been posting a lot lately, and I know I keep posting that I’m going to get back to posting, so for this post, I’m not making any claims, just some thoughts that have been running through my head lately, in the hopes of getting back on track…

One thing, at least for […]

I Must Revise My Exercise Tracking

Tweet

So yesterday I mentioned a bit about how I was disappointed in my directLife not accurately portraying my exercise bicycling v. my walking, and how I tried putting the do-dad thingy in my sock yesterday.  I did this because that is what they say to do.  From the directLife website: “We recommend placing your activity […]
