I've decided to try 31 days of 5 Minute free writes again this year. So, with my last few minutes of the 1st, here goes...
Sometime earlier in residency Glenn got a Fitbit through work. The band broke so he stopped wearing it for a while.
When we found bands at Goodwill we bought a couple but he still didn't start wearing it so he said I could and I did.
It was a good motivator for a while. For a few days I'd take a walk before bed to get my steps up but then the charger stopped working.
After buying a new charger my cousin invited me on some challenges. They have been a good motivation for me. I've never won but it's encouraged me to increase my steps. Most evenings you'll find me wandering my house reading Perspectives on my nook, getting more steps in, trying not to trip over the dog or the kids.
Today, ironically, is the first day I haven't gotten 10,000 steps. Yesterday was day 25 of my streak.
