I had a pretty good week overall. I was outside a lot, even when we got some surprise SNOW on Saturday! Luckily today it was sunny and 55, and I was able to walk without a full winter coat! The sunshine really lifted my spirits.
I’m back to thinking about getting a FitBit, but honestly, I don’t know that it would help me do more than what I do now. It may be fun to check my daily steps, but I my goals revolve around moving and walking for a specific amount of time, so I don’t need to know my step count. Thoughts?
Saturday: 52 minutes walking
Sunday: 71 minutes walking
Monday: 40 minutes walking
Tuesday: 75 minutes walking
Wednesday: 47 minutes walking
Thursday: 50 minutes BodyFlow + 30 minutes walking

Thanks to Felicia and #BookBlogWalkers, I started my journey back to a healthier lifestyle on January 6, 2014. I started with the goal of moving with purpose for 10 minutes each day and tracking my food intake. As the days progressed, I was able to walk longer and even start jogging. During 2014, I lost 25 pounds and reached my goal weight in September. Now I am working to keep the weight off and stay active. I find the best motivation for walking is a good audiobook and the support of my friends. Thanks for joining me in this journey!
