Hello Winter!!!



Winter arrives at 11:48 a.m. EST today and the darkest time of the year is almost behind us with total daylight starting to lengthen very soon - even if it's only for a few seconds at the beginning, pretty soon we'll be noticing it getting brighter in the evening - woohoo!!!

"I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December."
~ Oliver Herford, I Heard a Bird Sing

Now that's good news!!!

Saturday up and out the door. A day trip into Vancouver to shop, eat and to look at the Christmas lights at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. We were home by eight pm, and I was in bed, dead to the world by 8:30.

Where I have been? A couch potato... that where.
Sorry to say that for the month of November I rarely got over 3000 steps a day. There was a couple of exceptions but not many.
December hasnít been much better yet either..
Today I did get off the couch, not a lot of steps, 6876 so far, but I did get off the couch.









Letís hope this is the beginning of me getting off the couch

BEFORE I have my 2nd heart attack here I need some help from those that might know....I have a Fitbit Zip...yesterday I bought a Fitbit Charge2. I only have a laptop without Bluetooth! I went to my dashboard and removed the zip in order to add the Charge....so this is where my problem now starts big time.... I go back to dashboard and it says to add another device and I am sent to download app (which I already have! From here it goes downhill fast....there is nowhere now for me to find anything that fits my situation...tells me to go to dashboard and click an icon to add device....there is NO icon like they show. I plugged the Charge into USB and it scrolls to go to the setup page....again I am sent to the download for the app!!! PLEASE help I am getting dizzy here! Not the smartest when it comes to technology but seriously Fitbit!! Now then I also have seen on some of the setup video's...(I have low speed so watching video's is like pulling teeth!) that it says there is a dongle included in the package of the Charge.....mine had none....I have one for the zip but there was none included in the Charge......is this where my problem begins???? If I go to the setup and get thrown in circles again I think I will scream

We got the alarm fixed so glad.

Black Friday is over and Thanksgiving.

I had my 3 kids home so I did not do much exercise. They had me cooking and cleaning and playing games. I am ready for December to get some walking in. We are going camping this week so I hope to get my steps in. I just cant be in any challenges because there is no internet.

Elise and Janice are you both working more hours with the holiday season. Here some of the stores are open until Midnight.

My daughter gets off work at 11pm so sometimes we will go out to Walmart they are open 24 hrs.

Well it is Thanksgiving 2am and the house alarm went off. So I am up. Not a good way to start the day. We don't know why the alarm went off so DH will deal with it in the morning.

Today off to SIL for Thanksgiving Feast. She is going to have a large group and it is going to be a long day.

Then Black Friday. I don't go to the stores. This year maybe Petco and Harley Davidson just to see what the sales are.

How about any of you do you go out on Black Friday?

Elise are you glad the sale is over.

I used to work at a school library. I loved the book fair but I was so glad when it was over.

5000 just walking around work. Do you wear compression socks? I got the diabetic socks from Walmart. They help my legs.

It is raining today so I guess I will just walk around the house. I need to clean and mop the floor. Then the treadmill. Need to get ready for Thanksgiving.

Elise it has been raining here so it is hard to get the steps in. The rain does not last long but then it is hot and humid not good for walking.

Marcy glad to see you here. You can walk around the Christmas tree soon. emoticon

Wallahalla hope you are feeling better. I hate to move when I'm feeling sick. I hope you feel better. emoticon Cold weather and being inside does not help much either. I suffer allergies and headaches when the weather changes. Hope you feel better.

Bonnie how goes the steps with the family. You may not win everyday but maybe just 1 or 2 days a week.

emoticon Fitbit Friends!

My name is Marcy and I'm a friend of Becky ( emoticon Becky lol)

I have been a member of this team for sometime but have not posted. Becky and I were talking and I thought to myself...why haven't I been active on the most crucial team in my weight loss!!

So...I'm going to try to share my little step activity and hopefully get motivated to be more active. I have been battling the flu so right now I'm not reaching my goal. Being in the Texas heat, I have slacked off. Hopefully I'll start doing better and get into some challenges and get some little walks in with the fast paced friend, Becky!!!

Anyway, looking forward to meeting everyone and walking with you on this never ending weight loss journey.

*my walking is birding / photographing! emoticon

I'm not doing very well this month. emoticon Had a cold for over 2 weeks now. Cold meds and all the gargling with salt water seem to make me retain water. At this point I just have to hope for maintaining and not gaining weight.

Elise I bet the swimming really helps. Is there a fitbit now that is water proof?

Bonnie I like the goal day challenge because so many have different goals. Then everyone is just trying to get the goal. emoticon

Our park has an outdoor gym so I go there twice a week and left weights.
Im in Texas and it is mostly warm here. Just a few cool days in the winter mostly hot days.

I like to walk in the state park with my dog. But as I get stronger and want to go farther she gets tired especially when it is really hot and humid. emoticon

My DH and I got our Fitbits in June and, since we are both competitive by nature, it has definitely helped to get us motivated. My daughter and son-in-law got them a few months ago and we finally competed in a group challenge this past week. The men took off with it and completed the required 24,000 steps by 5:30 pm on the starting day (within 3 minutes of each other). Unfortunately, there is only any additional 24 hours to complete the challenge after the first person finishes, and I came in 1,000 steps short (my daughter was even further behind), but since it really motivated our husbands, we were super happy!

Strange day. When we got home from church, it was in the 80ís. We had a nice hot walk around the neighborhood. Now it is about 40 with a biting breeze. Had to close the windows to keep from freezing.

Wall hope you are feeling better.

Today I did not go walking instead I mowed the yard. 12,000+ steps.

I wish I could send some warm weather to you. This week 90+ days.

This month is not off to a stellar start for me. I've had this cold for a week now. No energy. Feel blechy. Can't afford to take a sick day. At least the first week of the cold is over, so relief should come within the next 7 days.

Yesterday I did not sleep very well. So I did not feel like walking at all. I just wanted to sit around and sleep. As I looked at my fitbit tracker I saw how I had not met my steps. It was 6pm so I got on the treadmill and walked.

Thanks to my fitbit friends for the challenge it really keeps me motivated to step it up.
