Birthday gifts to myself

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Yesterday I received via UPS my two presents fro myself for my birthday. A pedometer and a Rubbermaid pitcher. Today as I headed out to the VA hospital for blood work and a MRI I placed the pedometer in my pocket. I had 3 hours between tests so used that time to walk. My pedometer says I walked over 24,400 steps, twice my goal of 12,000 every day!

Tonight I brewed some lipton tea and poured it into my new pitcher after washing my pitcher out. I look forward to tomorrow having ice tea instead of diet pepsi. Ice tea has so many more health benefits than diet pepsi plus my needed caffeine!

I am really happy with my two presents to myself!

    Wow you are doing awesome! It can be a great motivator. I also do that in airports with long layovers - I've walked the entire O'Hare airport before, for example.

    And BOTH presents represent such a valuable investment in yourself and in your health, too! You're going to be the most physically fit guy in all of Pittsburgh - and that's saying a LOT! - if you aren't already.

Enjoy them in the very best of health, Steven! Well DONE! emoticon

    Wow! You certainty got good use out of your new pedometer today.
Nice emoticon presents you gave to yourself. You'll get good use out of both of them.

Don't forget to drink water too! emoticon One glass of water to one glass of ice tea.

Okay ... I know you already have a mother and you don't need another. emoticon emoticon
