That's awesome, nycfem!

I found a fitbit at WM but it's out of my price range - for right now. I have two annual bills that come due the last of January, so after that? I will see if I can budget for the least expensive one I saw at WM.

Today I was on desk duty, so I didn't get too many steps in. I counted my steps by heart and as of five minutes after I got home, I only had about 720 steps.

Also, my s-i-l came up with a really good idea for me, on how to get some swim therapy time in, on the weekends. I signed up for a weekend pass, with a senior discount, and I can use the pool and hot-tub-spa-jet pool in the afternoons on Saturday's.

Tomorrow is Tuesday, so I hope to see more steps tomorrow.

I ordered the pedometer Gemme suggested, and it's supposed to be delivered today. (Great deal compared to the fitbit!) So we'll see what happens!

3300 steps so far and I'll more than double that by day's end. I ran a couple errands this morning and will do chores later.

I hope it works for you! The company is very interactive and will send you an email with additional details and whatnot. I found walking through the set up video online worked best for me to calibrate it, but it only took about 5 minutes to get it all set up. I took longer to figure out my step calibration but that wasn't bad either. I used a tape measure and the cats didn't like the sound of it retracting. They looked at me like I was injuring them somehow.

Drama queens.

Okay, I think I have a plan that works now. At home, where I don't use my rollator, I wear my fitbit. When I leave for work, I take the pedometer in my pocket. This is better anyway because I'd rather have something in my pocket at work than wear something on my wrist. Then I switch back to the fitbit at home.

(Using the pedometer at home is not necessarily possible because I don't always have pockets at home. I'll leave it to you to figure out why.)

I wonder if there's a way to update the steps on my fitbit so it will include all my steps? Part of the deal with my work subsidizing the cost of the fitbit was that I'm supposed to connect it to some database of all the university employees that are participating. (I know, Big Brother is watching.)

That sounds like a plan. If the Fitbit still doesn't quite do it for you, the pedometer can be put on a lanyard around your neck too.

um... Thanks for the laugh! (cough... you ain't the only one!) lol

Seriously, though, I commend all who make an effort to move around and get exercise by whatever means they are physically able to.

For my own part, I went and paid my cable bill (Shaw) at their office on Monday. I could just as easily pay the bill at my bank, just around the corner, or even have them withdraw the amount automatically through my bank, monthly. However, going out and paying it directly, I have to walk and walk, take two buses, and walk some more, and then come home, all of which gives me an outing, and some walking exercise.

I had 870 steps today. I was surprised there weren't more at work - about half of those were work-related. I mean, it seems like an awfully long walk from the parking deck to my desk.

So I'm going to set a goal of 1000 steps a day for now. We'll see what happens.

I've spent a lot of my time flat on my butt watching Lifetime movies today so my steps are exactly at 3000.

855 steps today, and to get that, I had to do an extra 100. I had to do them 50 at a time because I started breathing harder and my heart rate was up to 90/91. My resting heart rate seems to be around 79/80. I have no idea what my heart rate should be during exercise, perhaps I'll Google that tomorrow.

I was doing just fine today, with my steps, until a smug GOP Jacka$$ made a remark to me in passing, which spiked my PTSD and I sure do wish I could have had a nice pair of boots on to do what Nancy Sintra sang about (I'm gonna take this pair of boots and walk all over you).


Luckily, I regained my composure and just kept walking my steps.

Today's total: 991 (Cha-Ching).
