Today was one of those sparkling days without a lot of wind. I vacuumed up leaves (an ongoing project), put mulch around three sides of the gardenia house, and various and sundry little things. It seems that with the leaf vac I would have gotten my five thousand steps in on my fitbit. But no. Using a pitchfork to load three carts of mulch and drag it to the gardenia didn't do it, either. Walking does it, but I object to walking for no purpose...yeah, I've had the conversation where a fit body counts. Evidently a fit body is further down the list than seeing that I accomplished something. I even moved my place to empty my compost pail so I would walk more and get in a flight of stairs. Still not enough. The fitbit "wants" 10,000 steps. I've only gotten that once or twice since I've had the little jewel. I have to pay attention to get half that in on a regular basis!
I've stopped using MyFitnessPal because it kept saying I had done it five days in a row when I had tried to do it consistently but was having trouble with connectivity. I'm still trying to eat low-carb, high fiber...I'm just not recording it. My blood sugar was 94 this morning; life's good.
