Random Reporting Thoughts on My Activities

Wednesday, July 01, 2015

I'm happy to report that my Activity Streak is progressing nicely! emoticon

Interesting to me is that my All-Or-Nothing attitude toward activity has morphed into 'Something is Better Than Nothing' (THANKS INDYGIRL!)

While I haven't walked/jogged my Park Circuit on a Daily Basis, I HAVE increased my overall activity. Who knew I would ever go to the county fair and walk 18,646 steps??? Then 2 days later go back and walk 12,344?? True, I was pretty wiped out the day after each adventure and 'let myself' take it easy (~5,000 steps)

For some perspective on these numbers: When I got my friend Fitbit Zip a few months ago, 1,000 steps was a HUGE HUGE HUGE accomplishment. I have a 'thinking' job and spend most of my day butt-in-chair, mind-in-computerland.

I LOVE to post my Exercise Check-In on Gastric Bypass Sparklers Team site. It's fun to read other's posts and keeps me motivated. I finally figured out that as I'm interested in how other Sparklers are doing (challenges as well as successes), someone out there 'might' be interested in reading about mine.... regardless, it helps ME to get some of the junk out of my brain and entertain myself a bit before slogging thru the less-fun parts of my day!
