Compliment from the neighbor

Saturday, August 17, 2013

I LOVE my Fit Bit!! I wear it everywhere and I have been so much more active since getting one. It really keeps me moving!!

When I am at work I am literally on my feet all day long so it is easy for me to reach and even exceed my 10,000 steps/5 miles a day. On my days off I just want to putter around the house and do things like sew dresses which means I am sitting down most of the time. Not that I don't really need the break, but I am nothing if not obsessive about my 10,000 steps/5 miles a day rule, so I make myself go for a walk around our condo complex.

Yesterday on my power walk I ran into my neighbor who is a sweet older woman who lives alone with her two adorable poodles. She asked me where I teach my classes or if I am freelance. When I questioned her (since I haven't taught in years) she told me she just assumed with how fit and active I always am that I MUST be a personal trainer!!! Whoa!! When I told her I was an event planner she was totally surprised. Even still, I thanked her profusely and gave her some weight loss tips that worked for me since she has been trying to lose post-injury weight (just like me when I joined Spark!!).

    Awwww! What a genuine and kind compliment!

My FITBIT reports tend to look really sad weekends vs weekdays, especially Sundays! Lol
