I am really proud of my results today, not because they are all that great, because they really aren't, but because I absolutely did NOT feel like walking when I got done with work today. It took all of my willpower to put my shoes on and head out the door. Of course, once I was out there, all the stress of the day began to melt away. Getting outdoors always puts my mind at ease...

I know the feeling Cricket, getting started on work days is not negotiable, but off days and after work is sometime very difficult. I find, like you, if you can get started, it gets easier and the steps pass by. I just wish there was some carry over of that feeling to the next day, but no, back to step one again.

Got my almost 15,000 steps in today. Probably will tomorrow too since I'm working, but going to take off the Fitbit for a while. My grandkids are doing a Fitbit daily challenge and my Garmin is calling for 14,637 steps. I guess nobody but PawPaw needs to know what happened.

Getting your steps in doesn't have to feel like work. Find a place that makes your heart sing (I love the trails at my local park.) and just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Or heck, just turn the music up and dance!

Well, they all beat Pawpaw on the Fitbit daily challenge. Yep, I finished last place.

I'm at 57 consecutive days of making my daily steps goal on my Garmin. Todays goal is 14,725 steps and I got a little over 6,000 of them out of the way already. Will have to get the rest after a short nap.

86 Minutes In The Life of a Crazy Cricket

Conversation with my inner voice...

Inner Voice: Ummm... Hello? It's getting late. Don't you have some steps to do?

Me: It is COLD out there!

Inner Voice: And?

Me: And, well... I have a sore throat!

Inner Voice: Are your legs broken?

Me: [insert $5 worth of profanity for the cuss jar.]

Inner voice: Hey, it's your decision. I just didn't think you were a quitter.

Me: (While tying my shoes.) I really don't like you.

Inner Voice: As long as ya keep putting one foot in front of the other, I don't much care if ya like me or not.

Me: Oh my gosh, it is SERIOUSLY cold out here.

Inner Voice: You would warm up if ya jogged.

Me: [insert another $5 worth of profanity for the cuss jar and cranking up the tunes so I can't hear the inner voice]

Inner Voice: Hahahaha! Are you listening to " If You're Going Through Hell"?

Me: Do you ever shut up?

Inner Voice: Your fitness band is vibrating. You finished.

Me: Ya think I could eat dinner without you?

Inner Voice: Not a chance.
