For the last week I've been hitting 10,000 steps or using the stationary bike every day. I had to start breaking up the monotony of the bike so I made a deal with myself that days I get my steps in I am excused from the bike. This is subject to revision of course, I'm forever making deals with myself. Remember that show 'Let's Make a Deal'? I should have been on that.
I haven't been tracking here because I've started using the "my fitness tracker" app on my smartphone. I know, sounds disloyal to SP, right? Truth is that the foods I eat and european brands are not in the SP tracker and since I haven't had a lot of luck with tracking so far, I thought I'd try this. The problem is that I don't get my points or trophies that I used to.
It seems to be worth it though because I have noticed a difference; I've lost two pounds this week. I'm not going to celebrate that yet because I tend to fluctuate within 4 pounds on an almost weekly basis. If I'm still at this weight next week (or lower), I'll shout it out to everyone!
So, what have I done last week? On Wednesday I walked 14,000 steps along the beach through 3 towns. I thought it was pretty cool to see the boats and beach barriers.
On Thursday I walked past some lovely olive groves up a path leading to a castle.
Yesterday I took the dog walking in the morning and in the afternoon went to the aquarium where we found Nemo!
And I want to leave you with this photo. Halloween isn't an Italian holiday. In recent years some businesses and amusement parks have been celebrating with decorations, but it's hit or miss. Here is a photo I took on my walk showing that someone is a little confused:
