the future....

Sunday, January 13, 2013

The future depends on what we do in the present. - Mahatma Gandhi

Isn't that the truth.
Here we are trying to make tiny changes to our daily lives in order to have a better future. It is a challenge to eat right and stay active-but each little triumph builds more success

The most difficult part of this lifestyle is dealing with setbacks. How to not give up? I haven't seen the scale change in months. I know that the scale isn't the only indicator of success- but sure would be nice to see it moving. I know I'm much more active than I have been in years. I know I'm making better food choices. I attempted the January challenge-thinking it would be a great motivator-but it turns out-I'm just not that into the video workouts. By the time I've watched the ford commercial I'm ready to move on.
So my future depends on today-guess I'll sort it out tomorrow. emoticon

  Totally agree with you about the commercials. Now I use that time to tie my sneakers and grab some water. Good luck. emoticon

Blessed are we who can laugh
at ourselves
for we shall never cease
to be amused!

new fitbit

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I started using my fitbit today. It's so cool. It syncs with SP. Automatically puts my walking minutes into fitness tracker.

I walked 5763 steps today-about 2.5 miles- I didn't know I walked that much at work.
Of course the goal is 10,000 steps a day-guess I'll have to "step" it up a bit tomorrow.

  Don't you love new toys? How nice that this one is fun and promotes more physical activity at the same time. Keep us advised on how much you like it.
