Today's Thoughts:
emoticon If you walk, run or ride a bike outside, and have an Android phone, you might want to take a look at Google “My Tracks” on Google Play. It records your path (in real time on Google Maps, keeps track of your time and distance (actual path traveled as opposed to distance between start and finish, or among landmarks). It's fun, informative, and saves data to a variety of places and in a variety of formats.

It's also a good way of calibrating your Fitbit device, to see it's actual accuracy versus a GPS measured path

Data Points:
emoticon Weight: 185.

emoticon Sleep, Last Night: 8.93 hours. Sleep was good. Back is a problem.

emoticonFitness Stats including Fitbit:
* 249 minutes
* 1316 calories of exercise
* 5.64 miles traveled
* 14 floors climbed
* 12,128 steps.

emoticon Isometric Abs: 40 minutes.

emoticon Right Shoulder/Arm Exercises: 4 exercises x 40 reps x 2 sets

emoticon Calorie Budget Adherence, Today: Spot on, max.

NIts & Grits
This was not only my first long walk with Google My Tracks, it was also:
* First walk outside with both arms free. What a joy!
* Longest walk I've taken outside in years!
* 3.81 miles over uneven ground, with hills and valleys, mostly grass. 3 hrs, 21 mins.

    I use my phone to make phone calls and very few text messages, that's it. I don't have a fancy phone, can't use them much back in the woods, no service.

    I don't do phones. My hubby and I don't know how to use the new ones. We have little use for one.

You are no longer the one armed man. LOL.

    I am glad about the regained function of your arm congrats. Unless you sow something in the lives of other Sparkpeople, how can you possibly hope to meet new people? By the way, the little baby on your page is really beautiful.
