That's interesting..

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

I appreciate the nice 'welcome back's you've all afforded me, thank you. I also appreciate all the 'Likes' for items on my activity feed but.. I haven't done over 1,500 fitness minutes in the last several days.

I'm not sure why, but it appears my Fitbit is creating multiple entries in my Fitness tracker, which is wracking up major minutes/points/calories, but none of them are correct. I've been able to go in and remove the excess entries so that my calorie count is correct, but there's no way for me to remove those fitness minutes or trophies for them.

What an odd thing. Has this happened for anyone else? I did do a search on the Fitbit team but did not find a topic to coincide with what's going on. Curious.

So far things remain what is currently 'normal' for me. Eating pretty free-range, moving a little more than not at all, sleeping relatively 6-7 hours.

We're not having a traditional Thanksgiving here - we had that last Saturday actually. Let me explain.
While I've been 'gone' I've become even more immersed in animal care and rescue efforts. I was fortunate to be part of a team from Portland who traveled to the South to assist the ASPCA with a large group of fighting dogs who were rescued back in August. Read a brief part of our story here:

That was a life-changing event and one that, while I wish that kind of work was never needed again, I am eager to continue to help with whenever possible.

Well, the opportunity came up again, much closer to home this time!

Bill and I will be working at the emergency shelter tomorrow for Thanksgiving. We have a friend who will be going to the house mid-afternoon tomorrow to let our own kids out so they get some play time and exercise. We'll be home far too late to cook up any kind of normal Thanksgiving dinner, so we opted to have our fancy meal on Saturday instead. It was very good and we have plenty of turkey left that we can have some yummy turkey dish instead once we're home.

I'm thankful for my family and friends. I'm thankful that I'm able to donate to rescues to help them continue their good works in helping companion animals. I'm thankful that I'm able-bodied enough to help make a difference and care for our own kids and the kennel and rescue kids. I'm thankful for some much and continue to pay forward my good fortune as often as I can.

May the spirit of the season be with you, may you be warm and loved and cared for, and may you share that outward with the rest of the world.

    Your work with the doggies is wonderful. :) There are lots of Staffies here in AU, it's a really popular dog breed. Unfortunately, with the growing gang problems come the growing theft of bully breed dogs for fighting. Makes me sick!

I spent Thanksgiving at KU Med in Kansas City MO with my dad. He got a turkey dinner and my daughter discovered the cafeteria was also serving turkey and ham dinners so we didn't miss out. I just bought a hideously expensive turkey at Aldi this morning and I'll roast it in a couple days when it thaws so I can get more of a turkey fix....I've been deprived. Little or no turkey for seven years.

    I've seen some of your Facebook posts on your dog volunteering. For some reason Facebook doesn't let me comment on anything. One day my Fit bit had me climbing way more stairs than I did. Don't know what that was about. I'm thinking of doing the Rum Run on Sunday since it won't be raining. Any interest?

    I've had problems with extra food entries, but only when I change something in SP. It seems like it adds rather than updates in FitBit.

    One day my fit bit had me burning over 16,000 calories. And I have no idea why. It wasn't in my fitness tracker. Wow, that's so amazing all the work you've been doing for our furry friends. And I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, too...and you get lots of doggy kisses! Hugs...Robin
