So yesterday I decided to explore a new section of the walking trail. The posted mileage said 1 mile each fitbit disagreed. It was actually 5 miles , Sooo I am totally worn out! ** 5 miles round trip**

Today was a busy day , but good. I walked the dogs 3 times and walked 1 mile at the walking track today.

My husband and I were talking about the boy scouts tonight , the badges and patches ect. And the following comment was made.....

" A thing only has value if you respect it's worth." In other words when you desire something-like a badge or patch-you see a value in it admire the people who have worked to earn it.
and that's why you want it.

If you lie or "fudge" about the details in order to get that (badge/patch ect).Then you have minimized it's value. You may have the badge but you have degraded it.

This made me think about the SparkPeople badges and awards. And the stickers I give myself . The stickers especially. I mean I'm a grown woman with unlimited amounts of silly stickers. I could plaster them all over my calendar! I set the guidelines of when I get these stickers. I decide if they are just decoration, or if they represent any value.

Anyway, just a little thought for today.

    WEARINGTHIN, I was curious and mapped it with "map my route" on SP, it was in line with FitBit-they have the wrong # posted,I think.

    Great job on the walking! And it is true if we take short cuts to get things they lose some of their meaning and aren't worth the true value we get if we actually do the work!

    Awesome job on the walk. Can't agree more, I count everything I put in my mouth, have a friend who does and she doesn't understand why she's not loosing....

    Do you really think the walking trail was off by that much? Have you ever clocked your fitbit against a posted mileage? You could measure off some landmarks with your car, then see if the fitbit is accurate for those distances. I would really want to find out. (If it were me , anyway.) Good luck, Glenn
