100,000 steps

Not sure that I've mentioned it, but I'm exercising again ... finally. I'm also counting calories using the app Lose It. It's nice because it tracks my calories, my exercise and weight loss, and it gives me a visual overview of each day to sort of hang on to and help me make sense of my good and bad habits.

Not that I care what my bad habits are. If I want to spend 300 of my precious calories on a pack of M&Ms, I'm gonna do it.

The Place Where I Work issued every employee a pedometer a few months ago, and we're being incented to exercise. We can earn money to be put back in our paychecks if we exercise AN INSANE AMOUNT. I'm working on it, but I don't know that I'll reach the goal in just 365 days ... mainly because I signed up in September and then missed three whole months worth of time before finally attaching that pedometer in January.

As part of the work fitness program, employees can challenge each other on the website, which my friend Melanie took the opportunity to do last week.

I'm not proud of this, but it is what it is.


I have no idea who's gonna win. But lunch at the restaurant of the winner's choice is on the line. So even though no matter who wins, I'll probably be eating a salad with light dressing, I'm in it to win it. Wish me luck!

Oooh, that Melanie! I will be rooting for a tie! :) Wish I lived in Birmingham so I could run with you! I've thought about wearing a pedometer to see how many steps I take walking around in circles at my house refereeing fights and picking up toys.

Good Luck!

I just got Lose It! and love it, thanks for the recommendation. I've been running for a while of weeks but now I need to get good about food. Exercise is only half of the battle. GL!
