Thank you for all the advice and comments on my last post. I will keep them in mind when I go on vacation. I have been looking forward to reading what people think about my posts every day now. Please keep the comments coming!
I had a good day today. I biked outside today for the first time in a while. I went the farthest I have gone so far 7.34 miles! I did it in 1hour 3min 55sec. I know that because I used the Endomondo app for my phone. I love the app for when I am exercising outside. The app posts my workouts to FB(which happened by accident). At first I didn't like that my workout was public for everyone to see, but after hearing the encouraging comments from my friends, I decided that I liked it. The only problem I have with the app is when I work out at a gym it doesn't really work because it is a gps type app and when I work out at a gym I am stationary.
I decided to buy a pedometer today. I looked on the forums and researched what people said was the best one. I found that the consensus was for the Omrom brand. I found a store that carries one, REI. The store is far from my house, so I had my dad drive me there. I bought the $28 one. It seemed to get good reviews. On the way home I put the battery in and read the instructions. I got a really bad headache from riding in the car. Lately I have been getting really bad headaches whenever I am a passenger in a car and I do anything. The headaches don't come when I drive, just when I am driven. I went to the doctor for them recently and he told me to see a neurologist. I got an appointment for August 30th. I hope that my headaches don't interfere with the vacation that I am going on this weekend.
