Pedometor problems

Thursday, December 04, 2008

well i think i am back up and in business. december eve i was getting ready for december. and then i realized my pedo was gone. dec. 1 had to drive thru a blizzard to get new batteries. got up and running so i thought. i walked and walked and walked and my # 's for the day sucked. well this morning at 5:00 am i started to calibrate my new pedo. yes it was wrong for every 2 steps it was recording 1 for every mile i walked it record 1/2 mile. i think now i have it going right. boy isn't this fun. rather than get discouraged i found out what the problem was. now i hope i will be on track for a few more days. but right now i feel fat. had to put long johns on under my pants cause it is darn cold out today but u certainly don't want to freeze this early in the year. so anyone out there don't get frustrated find the problem and get even. have a great day. the sun is shining so i have to go out. brrr but it is cold.

    I know that pedometers can be such a pain if they're not up to par. There's no stopping you now. emoticon

    I'm glad you got your pedometer up and working again! Just thinking of walking and the old pedometer not marking every step gives me the chills!

I have to wear 2 pair of pants when I walk outside! I'd rather look fatter than be colder!

Love you,

today is december eve

Sunday, November 30, 2008

well tomorrow is the first day of december. disaster has happened. wore my pedo everywhere yesterday. was working cutting brush and trees up. last i looked it was over 14000. went to a christmas concert came home and guess what. yes the pedo is gone. i lost it. so this morning looked for another one around the house. found the high tech one but the batteries are dead. i have to find an excuse to go to town. i don't think it will be today. i need two batteries and the closest is over 20 miles away. i can't even walk there. wish me luck i am trying to find people going to town today. sunday. pop here is 20 people not much to choose from. i will try and pedo manually.


getting ready for December

Saturday, November 29, 2008

okay yesterday was a pretty busy day. my feet are killing me. prepared ceaser salad for well only 150. but it was a lot of romaine lettuce to clean. dinner went well but more than 4 volunteers would have been nice.

now today i still got up with my aching feet and went on my treadmill-sunday is my day to be lax.

now getting ready for december. i want to take a vitamin everyday--that will be an accomplishment if i am successful.
work out on treadmill 6 days a week. wear a pedometor and track steps everyday. and for my y & r fans as long as i don't go to cottage i will watch everyday that is my favorite chore or workout. gets the smiles going. so okay december i am ready. 2.5 pounds would be nice for december. but more would be good too.

    Set taking your vitamin daily as a Spark Streak, maybe that will help you remember to do it. It has helped me.

Feeding 200

Friday, November 28, 2008

today i got up at 5:00 am so i would have time to go on my treadmill for 45 minutes before getting ready to feed up to 200 people. only 3 volunteers and i don't know how but i do it every year. have a full day planned but the most important was to get my treadmill in. that was the me time.

for the next week i am going to keep up 45 minutes per day on treadmill and hopefully get my snowshoes into action. the snow better stay. yesterday i dug them out of storage--now i just have to find the right boots to use with them. generally it is 20-30 below and i can wear mocassins but it is only -4 to -11 so a little warm.

everyone have a great day.
