Okay we all know since I have gotten the fitbit that my goal is to climb at least 6 floors and to climb 10 at least 3 times a week and earn a badge. I have been breaking it down into 3 floors at a time. If I climb up to the apartment the fitbit will register 2 floors. What I do is go down on flight and climb back up and then go all the way downstairs and back upstairs to the apartment. That gives me three floors. When I take my walk, going up the small hill gives me 3 floors. Yesterday I decided to go for 4 floors to see if I could do it, and I did do it.
So that I wouldn't have to go out in the cold so often, the porch is enclosed so I don't wear a jacket, I decided today to push for 5. I did it. The last floor was hard, and I was puffing, but I had no choice but to get up the stairs so I could collapse in the apartment. In one shot I am halfway to the badge. I really didn't collapse but I couldn't carry on a conversation if I had to that is for sure. It took me a few minutes to get my breathing under control. Now all I have to do is climb the hill, 3 floors and come home, 2 floors and I will have the badge.
I called my Mom and told her that I was going to get my badge for 10 floors and she just doesn't get it. Of course she says good keep it up but she doesn't get why I am so excited about it. I am excited about this whole journey except for one thing. I am losing inches in the wrong place, I don't want to lose more inches in the bust, I want to lose in the waist. I went from 38D to 32B and lost only 4" in my waist. Does anyone know how to target where you will lose the inches?
