25,594 steps at the bottom of the world


Sunday, January 19, 2014

We hiked around a lot today in the local national park and looked at the permanent ice field above the town where there's a ski resort in the winter. It's so cold here it's hard to remember that this is the height of their summer!



The Fitbit said I went more than 25,000 steps today. www.fitbit.com/user/25GD

Here are the GPS tracks from some of where we went (we hopped in and out of a car so no I didn't go 35 miles on foot. LOL)

But it was enough to freeze up my arthritic knee once we stopped. I had to limp to dinner, but I think I'll have it straightened out by tomorrow. Dinner was at an asado place (where they serve grilled meat). We shared lamb, ham, beef, and chorizo. Axel insisted on getting salad and some mixed vegetables, and I was glad, although I probably could have just eaten the meat. Suan pretty much DID eat mostly meat. hehe.

I did a lot better with the eating today overall. It sure helps not to be trapped, tired, and bored in an airplane with them handing me things I shouldn't be eating!

Tomorrow will probably be my last dispatch until we return from Antarctica. I'm not paying $5/minute for data over their satellite connection on the boat!

    Im really interested to see what strategies you use for dealing with food and travelling , as this is a big problem for me . I manage to do so well at home and then lose the plot when i go overseas. It is really hard when your trapped on a plane for hours. We try to wear our joggers and spend all the transit time walking around the airports .
Sounds like a great trip. emoticon

    Now that's my idea of a vacation. It would definitely stretch my boundaries (geographically and otherwise!)

Can't wait for the next installment!
