A Quick Note


Wednesday, November 28, 2012

I'm swamped with work , but I'm not going to use that as an excuse anymore. So here's a short vignette.

Yesterday, I did not make it to the gym. I had group meetings, department meetings, interviews, and class -a busy day. When I got home, I was completely utterly exhausted...but I was also close to 10,000 steps. I had to take abby out, so instead of taking the elevator, we went down and up from the 9th floor. So many stairs!

But I still wasn't at 10,000.

The husband was watching the Daily Show, and instead of sitting and watching with him , I jogged in place while we were watching! A small bizarre thing, but I would never have thought of it, only the desire to complete those last 1500 steps pushed me to it. I was "too tired to go to the gym" but apparently that wasn't 100% honest.

Thank you fitbit for a little inspiration. Now if only I could make heads or tails of the calorie calculations...yesterday tracked 1019 calories burned over the course of the day O_O what is going on here?

Until Later,
Lena

    It always seems we have more energy than we mentally believe we have (I'm reading Hajime no Ippo, a boxing manga, and it has a lot of references of keeping going even after you feel as though you are completely done).

    Nice that you are enjoying the fiitbit, you'll figure out those calorie calculations eventually when you get some time to sit down and putz with the thing. Why do they make stuff puzzles to figure out is beyond me.
