Movin' and Groovin'

Monday, March 11, 2013

I'm enjoying watching Biggest Loser...puppy at my feet...what a sweetie. I completed C25K W3D2 today. Yay! Running is still hard but I can tell it's getting easier. On Saturday, when I did my runs, I felt so winded. Today, I was winded but it felt like an 8 on the challenge scale instead of a 10. That's encouraging. I really want to be a runner...what a great exercise...that you can do equipment...great cardio...great fun alone or in a group.

I'm at 7300 steps for today. I consider that a victory...considering I sit at a sedentary job for 8 hours a day M-F. To have hit 3/4 of my goal on a "forced sedentary" day is really a win. I did manage my 10 flights of stairs. My water consumption is way up for today too. One thing I have noticed...a mental change. When I "have" to move to do something...go downstairs to get clothes out of the dryer...let the dog out...walk around the office...I'm thinking, "Yay, I can get some steps in"...instead of, "ugh, I have go..." Thanks, Fitbit!

DD continues to send me adorable pics of the new granddaughter. I can't wait to hold her! I have most of my stuff packed. What I can't pack because I am still using it, I have on a list so I don't have to worry about it. I packed workout clothes! I don't imagine I will be too sedentary on this trip. Yay! Hope my Fitbit can handle it!

Hope you all had a great Monday! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    I have the same thoughts since getting my FitBit! Honestly, I'm super impressed with your 7k steps. I have an office job as well and most days I have a hard time getting my steps over 5k. Drives me nuts!

    That is what I love about my FitBit too! The one night it was encouraging me to do more I walked out my door and just ran up & down the stairs 5 times (I live in an apartment, on the 2nd floor). The neighbors probably wondered what was wrong with me, LOL!
Keep up the great work Cathy!
Oh, and thanks for the coffee yesterday!! On to a new week of school today.
