Becoming the best version of yourself

Tracking Steps – Not For The Sedentary!

So . . . I wear a FitBit watch. Haven’t sprung for an Apple Watch, don’t really need one more Apple product to figure out. FitBit is pretty basic for my needs.

Remember when some Doc somewhere decided to tell the world that we needed to take 10,000 steps a day? So I got on board to track my steps, gave up wearing my really pretty watch, and off I went. Clearly some days involve more activity than others, but it is surprising how many steps you can compile in an average day. Full disclosure: I have dogs that get many walks, even in the snow, so that helps!

Yesterday I got my annual summary from FitBit.

My busiest day? November 13 where I walked 27,011 steps. I can tell you it had to do with going to a college football game. Some of those steps might’ve been jumping up and down in the stands, just sayin’ . . . We must’ve won that day?

My total steps for 2021? 3,444,190 and I recorded “exercise” stats for 310 days out of 365. My average bedtime was 11:04 p.m. and my average wake-up time was 6:59 a.m. That would imply I got a whole lot more sleep than I feel like most of the time.

All in all, I think I did pretty good for an ol’ gal of a certain age.

Gotta go now, the couch and my DVR are calling, LOL!!

Truth – For Today

As I watch the continuous news feeds about Covid, Delta, Omicron – wondering what do we do when we run out of Greek alphabet letters? Makes me appreciate my health and living in my little shell here in the mountains. Be healthy and stay well.

Wise Words – – –

We have all been greatly challenged the past two years. I, myself, grew up in a house full or faith and religion. I was told, “God never gives you more than you can handle!”

There were times I would roll my eyes and think, If I’m a good person, then why all the challenges?

But’s that life, and no where has it ever been promised that it would be a walk down “easy street”.

I plan on 2022 being a year of growth for me. New address, with a healthier focus on what’s the best for me. I’ve spent a lifetime of giving, something I learned watching my parents. But they also took care of themselves and made decisions taking care of themselves and the family’s needs.

I’m going to take care of myself this year. I’ll receive plenty of “input” whether I need it, request it or want it. But in the end, as my Father used to tell me, always “take care of Number 1”.

Thanks for sharing your time with me.
