Guess it has been awhile since I posted a blog!
I purchased a Fitbit in June and my walking has increased by leaps and bounds. The first day I put it on I pretended it wasn't there and averaged only 3,500 steps. I thought I walked more than that. Now I strive for 10,000 each day (which I have only achieved four times). My daily average is about 7,000 every day so I figure this little device has doubled my daily walking. It is a great little device that attaches securely and discreetly to your bra ( I wear mine right between the girls). Whenever I get on my laptop it syncs to the Fitbit site to keep track of my daily, weekly & monthly steps. There is some friendly competition among friends and now I have it set up with Spark People and it syncs whenever I log in each day. Man Am I getting the fitness minutes and points now!
I would highly recommend this little device. It is available on Amazon for about $50.
Today I got to my carpool a half hour early and put in 2,000 steps by walking around the parking lot before the crew got there.
I ordered a 4 week plan from QVC yesterday. It costs $180. and is a weekends off program. Money back if not satisfied. This may be good for me during the long month of March. I need to take the focus off my food (recipes & cooking) and put the focus on my cardio & ST which I have ignored for the past month since a foot injury. Please let me know if any of you have experienced either good or bad results on NS. I found the SP team for NS and joined and it seems Sparkers have been having good luck with this program. It is a bit high prices, but averages $2. for each pre-packaged meal.'
Timothy crossed the rainbow bridge today.
We took our last walk out to the barn this morning and I can honestly say I have never felt such pain. He was the best little dog ever and was there for me for thirteen great years together. Right now I feel like this hole in my heart will never heal. He died peacefully in my arms and I know he is in a better place now. I love you Timothy. Rest in sweet peace. You will forever be remembered and missed.
