0.7 Miles

I've been using my fitbit for 2 months now and I'm still in love. It really works for me!  A while back, I tweaked my lower back a little. Not enough to keep me in bed all day, but I knew I had to take it easy for a day or two so that my back wouldn't go all the way out. I pretty much just hung around the house, watched tv, did a little bit of light housework, etc. Activity wise, It was close to how a typical Saturday might look like before the fitbit. Here is what my fitbit tracked for that day:

Pretty pathetic.

Now, this is a screenshot of an average day since I have been using my fitbit:

Big difference. HUGE.
This really made me see how inactive I used to be. All of my "activities" involved me just sitting there ( reading, playing around online, playing guitar, watching tv, taking long baths, taking a short naps, and eating).
I've lost weight, I feel stronger, and I have less neck/back pain. : )

My  fitbit experience isn't all positive. I feel like the band is a shackle sometimes and that I have no choice but to meet my steps goal. One time, I walked around the neighborhood after drinking a few (*cough* three *cough*) glasses of wine because I had to meet the damn goal!
I drunk walked two miles!
I've found out what a "deep blister is" from personal experience and my two fitbit walking buddies both had ankle problems from walking too much in the wrong footwear. Flats are not your friends. I love my Toms but they offer zero arch support.

In other news:
I got the best new Betsy Johnson Sunglasses.

That is all.

Girl, fix the pics so I can see the "after" shot! You are looking great and all the walking has been good for your soul.
