I really need to crack down

Today begins my shifting of my habits. At the end of May I got myself a FitBit. It's a cool little, souped up pedometer that tracks a whole bunch of stuff. I love it. In the beginning I was excited to see how many steps I went every day and how many calories I burned and all that good stuff. Lately I find myself forgetting to check it. It also gives you all kinds of cool graphs and charts. I pulled up my history to look at the steps I've taken over the past 30 days and here's what it looks like:

As you can see there is not much consistency. Some days I take 18,000 to 20,000 other days I'm lucky if I get in 6,000. So that is something I need to work on and it begins today. So my goal this week is to log 15,000 steps every day instead of 6,000 one day and 20,000 the next. I think consistency is a better way to go. Also, I will track my food. I will, I will, I will. That is something I have been dropping the ball on seriously.

I have given up the illusion that I will lose any weight before school starts in 2 weeks but I would like to not feel like the house that I currently feel like.  So, with that said, I think it's time to get off my butt and get moving because in order to accomplish all this movement I can not spend a lot of time sitting at the computer.

I'm shifting my habits starting today as well. Half a day in and so far so good but I know better than to think I have it nailed for even one day yet...

The end is near

 of summer vacation that is. Teachers are due back next Monday, which means this is my last week of freedom. It's been a good summer. I&...
