Day 8 - Committing
Tuesday, March 26, 2013
Yesterday my Dietbet started. For those who don't know, it's a competition to lose 4% of your body weight in 4 weeks. You put up real money into the pot and whomever meets the goal splits the pot. So if you meet your goal, you're guaranteed your money back - maybe more. Here's the link if anyone is interested: http://www.dietbet.com/games/1
It was a pretty good day on the whole. Keira was feeling a lot better, though she's been waking at night recently. I got some work done and got my offer letter. I start my new job on April 8 and I sent a notice to one of the firms I work part-time for that I would be wrapping up then and they said they are going to send me an offer too! So I might have a couple of things to choose from. In any case, big changes ahead.
We went to see my grandmother because we missed her party the day before and probably ate a few too many leftovers, but I definitely exercised restraint. When I came home, I rode the exercise bike for a half an hour and tried out my new FitBit. Today is the first day I'm using it all day, so we'll see how it works out. One thing I noticed is that it sometimes calculates my time in the car as steps. Any other users notice that?
