Yes, my 3rd post in less then 3 hours...so what??   That number that I saw on the scale this morning, 191, has me so pissed off I can not think straight.  I took off for my run right after the last post and all during my run I was just steaming.  My initial reaction is, of course, to stop eating and work out until I collapse.  That is a little extreme but I think I'm on the right track.  I definitely need to be more active.  I've been wearing my FitBit since I got it on May 28th.  I wear it all the time so I have a pretty good idea of what my activity level is like in general.  It's really cool because it tracks your level of activity all day long.   Here's today's so far:

So what it shows is that I've been u (because you tell it when you sleep) for about 3 1/2 hours.  And I've taken 5,996 steps, gone 3.38 miles, and the pie chart shows that for 1 1/2 hours of that time I've been sedentary.  That is my problem.  I regularly log 9-11 hours of day of sedentary time.  That is very not cool.  A large part of the problem is that I'm trying to write a thesis and that requires time sitting.  Sitting reading. Sitting doing research. Sitting writing.  I need to come up with a way to get this stuff done but be less sedentary.  Don't ask me how I'm going to do that.  I do know that I am going to track every little bite I eat.  I'm sure I'm eating too much in spite of what I think.  So every morsel gets tracked.  Luckily Fitbit tracks your food too.  Okay, I'm bummed, depressed, whatever you want to call it but something has to change and it has to change right now.

 So I mentioned that I had gotten some of the cups I ordered. They are Stanley dupes and have gold plating under the powder coating, so when...
