All Arrow all the time…

Standard

There are characters on this show that engage me in a way that many shows do NOT. The center of it all being Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen, and the story of a spoiled rich boy being chewed up, spit out, and clawing his way into greatness. Here we are closing in on the halfway point of Season 5 – and I think I’m well and truly mad.

Be good to yourself (nobody else will!)

Standard

I know I don’t share all of the data from each walk, but really does anyone REALLY care?! Either way – I’m currently beta testing Android 7.0 Nougat on my Samsung S7 and it’s possible that the GPS is slightly buggy due to that. I know the walk I took this morning is 2.87 miles; I’ve done it so many times! I had to scrap that “tracking walk” from the Fitbit app and go with what my Fitbit Charge 2 picked up etc. (That is why there isn’t a distance on the capture) Continue reading

10k steps a day is hard…

Standard

No joke. Each Fitbit comes with a default (I think) of 10k Steps/Day Goal. Dudes – for someone with a desk job that is really hard to make!! Today I had 7/10 hours with the 250 reminders, and went to the gym and clocked over 2 miles on the treadmill, and went grocery shopping, and did kitchen cooking and cleaning, as well as running around the house. I literally just hit 10,127 steps as I got into bed. The struggle is real! Continue reading

My coffee is cold…

Standard

Again. On the weekends, I love the fact that I get to use one of my beloved over-sized coffee mugs to drink my coffee  rather than the Contigo thermos(es) that I use when travelling to work, etc. Today is a lovely mug from The Madonna Inn and I’ve already had to stick it back into the microwave 3 times.

But I like to sit…sometimes!

Standard

In all seriousness, I can attest to #2. Do it!! So glad my Fitbit Alta has the reminders!

How many hard boiled eggs can YOU eat?

Standard

The answer is (2) every single damned day. Every. Single Damned. Day. (Weight Watchers = 2 pts each) Thankfully I don’t get sick of routine repetitive meals. It is what is helping me to stay on track with losing weight – as well as keep my budget in check. And the eggs are good protein that tide me over every morning at work until lunch. THEN I really pack in the protein! 🙂

So yesterday was my Week 2 Completion/Weigh In day Continue reading
