I'm alive! Been working on my better eating and getting in those steps every day. I started tracking faithfully on My Fitness Pal the week of Christmas, just getting things logged each day at first and not really focusing on doing better right away. After Christmas I got down to business. On New Year's Day I got a Samsung Gear Fit2 Pro (fitness watch that goes with my phone) and found that I could link my Samsung Health app with My Fitness Pal! Not long after I sync'd everything, I got an email from Samsung thanking me for my purchase, and an email from My Fitness Pal informing me that Samsung had upgraded my account to Premium for a whole year!! That's a $50 plan!!!! I peeked around at some of the community features and still just use it for tracking everything. Their message boards are not like the blueboard, that's for sure. At any rate, I'm down 21.6 pounds so far. |
Other than that, just working a ton and spending as much time as possible at home with our dog Sam. He had cancer this past summer, and a surgery that he never quite bounced back from. He's having a tough time going up and down the stairs, and slides around on the wood floor. So we have towels laid out like a runway for him, and moved his beds so he is closer to us. It's like we have a hospice center for him at home. He's been a wonderful part of our family for 12 years now, and it will be quite a loss when he goes.
Thanks for thinking of me, darling ttK. I'll be around more. Has anyone heard anything more from Shirley, apart from the one post on Facebook? I think of her often and hope she's alright. I don't post much on FB anymore, but do occasionally read. The political ranting is just ridiculous! If anyone is on Instagram I am too. My name there is rachael._.anne
Take care, and talk to you all soon!
