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.
