I’m free and starting the summer in fine fashion. When I got home from school yesterday afternoon Nick was home and we spent a few hours floating lazily in the pool, a lovely way to begin summer. Shortly after we came up Nick asked me if the day felt like one long Friday. And without thinking I agreed with him, I didn’t see the leather paddle until it was too late. He said that ‘Friday’ seemed like a good time to clear the list. The list was short, but having just gotten out of the pool, I could really feel it. Pool soaked bottoms are always a little tender.
Mollie and I got the fitbits. I like it – it certainly makes you aware of the amount of activity each dayand evidently I am coming into a dangerous time for me. I do a lot of sitting during the summer. That’s my time to write. But I’m going to have to get up and move, especially if I’m going to win my challenge with Mollie. I told Nick I was already thinking of cheating to get my steps in. I told him I was going to put the fitbit on the cat one day – that would get my steps in for sure. Nick said he thought Mollie might be suspicious if the fitbit reported that I’d climbed two trees and caught a bird. Yeah, maybe not the best idea.
I changed the daily total from 10,000 steps to 7,000 because I wanted to have a chance of reaching my goal. Someday I may work up to 10,000 but it’s going to take some time to get there. I’m also fascinated that it tracks my sleep – telling how long I sleep and how long during the night I was restless and how many time I woke during the night. I think I’m a pretty good sleeper, but I’m going to have to compare my results with other some time to see how ‘normal’ I am.
Hopefully I can start commenting now that school's over. I’ve been lurking everywhere and it’s time to get into the conversation again.
