Hi, folks, it was great reading so much news from you all! I have been busy continuing writing the memoir of my trip to France and England last year, and working on the accompanying photos to be posted on Flickr. I can email a copy of the memoir to you if you like – I just need your emails!
I think instead of listing my step count for the last two weeks, I will post a comparison of a week’s steps from last year (the week of Aug. 4-10) and the same week’s steps from this year. I waited until now to compare the same days – ok, I’m compulsive! Did an average of the steps.
In 2008, my 7-day average was 6345 steps a day. In 2009, during the same 7 days, the average was 9590 steps a day. I am pretty happy about this! also happy that I have managed to lose a bit of weight (I don’t know how much I weigh but I am wearing clothes that I could not get into earlier this year – that is enough for me!). The pleasure principle works for me in terms of food, plus just plain eating more veggies and somewhat fewer carbs. I’ve found a wonderful way to get 500 mg of calcium – in Adora, which are dark chocolate candies chock full of calcium. They are very tasty! I saw a lady buying almost the whole supply at Wegman’s one day, and I figured they had to be good!
So, no step lists today – and TODAY I was tired, so I stayed indoors all day working on the computer, doing my planning for next year’s masses. Only 2791 steps. But it was my first “day off” in quite a while. SWEET!
Take care, everyone, think small but positive! I will post a week from now, I promise…
