Morning GRRR and Motivation!

Friday, February 22, 2013

I'm trying to keep a good attitude this am. We got about 4 inches of snow, not too bad. But it is my carpool day. The girl that drives on Friday normally takes 1.5 to 2 hrs for a 50 minute drive. Add this weather - GRRRR. This isn't just a time thing for me as sitting in the car causes me pain in my bad hip. Oh well, nothing I can do. I'm just going to try to trap and hold my Zen before she gets here.

Well, having friends on Fitbit is definite motivation. Thank you to the two Spark friends that are KICKING MY ARSE in steps. I saw the numbers last night before bed and did a 20 minutes run in place just to up my steps to something respectable. LOL!!

I have nothing planned for tonight as I don't plan on being home before 7 (Grrr). Maybe we'll get out in the snow late but I don't know what the temp is going to be yet.

Warm Wags and Happy Snuffles!

    Oh, oh, oh, how I can relate! I have to always depend on a ride being blind and all! I can't stand it when I have to wait for someone and know that that person being late is going to make me late too! I just don't like having to depend on others to get me there, where ever there is! I hope things did improve for you! Sending extra warm hugs your way today!

    Glad you have some sparkers to join you on fitbit so you can have someone to compete with! I have a pedometer, Omron Go Smart, but not a fitbit. I get between 7,000 - 18,000 steps a day depending on what my schedule is!

    Sounds like Fitbit is a good source of motivation! Very sparky!!! (Sorry about the extended car time, sounds like a whole pile of not fun. Maybe you can keep your Zen through the whole ride!)

    Hang in there! Go to a happy place on your car ride and maybe take a motivating book to read? Great job on the fitbit! Friends do help with motivation...glad to hear that it's working for you! emoticon

    Good for you!!! If I had a fitbit, I would join the fun. I'm pinching my pennies right now because I am going to be furloughed (stay home 1 day a pay day for no pay for about 7 months). Maybe after the furlough is over, I'll join you guys. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh Kitty, in case you dont know I am slightly competitive. teeheehee.

When I got home yesterday I barely showed 3400 something steps. Once we got to my daughters softball practice I put in my earbuds and cranked the music and walked and walked and walked. Then for giggles I walked a little bit more. I knew I could not afford to end with less than decent numbers.

Next week I think I will have to slow down a bit because I have been neglecting my ST big time.

Stay warm.

    I hope your day ends up better than you expect. Why do you carpool Fridays?- I know how much you dislike it.

    Hope your zen lasts, and the weather doesn't lengthen the journey.

Have a great day

That's great that you're feeling challenged to compete against your friends. That is totally what motivates me too. Game on!
