I never thought the day would come ....

I miss lchf.

A lot.

The smallish person does, too, and told me a couple of days ago that he wants to go back to it. I think I may join him and see if maybe the supplements I'm taking will help my body react better this time around.

It's worth a shot, right?

My first week with the VivoFit 3 has gone pretty well. I had one severe PMS day when I hardly moved out of my recliner at all, and then I had Memorial Day which helped make up for it some :

And here we go .... again!

When I woke up from my post-work nap Tuesday afternoon I bolted downstairs and had three FedEx boxes waiting for me!
 Yup. One for each itty bitty part of my order. My VivoFit3, 2 extra wrist bands, and a clip. Each in its own way-too-big box.
Took me a while for it to behave properly with my phone. I fought and grumbled and swore and almost thought I would have to send it back and then rebooted my phone and everything was hunky-dory!
I spent an hour or so out back with John kicking around the soccer ball and playing baseball & basketball with his stuffed toys replacing the balls. We had a blast but it was a good reminder of how pathetically out of shape I'm in!

Finally, back to bed and then up for work and I left a few minutes earlier than usual to add in some steps.
Not bad for not even a full half day!

Onwards and upwards! (Well, downwards, hopefully ... for the scale, you know ....)

Ooooh so excited!!!

During a lovely chat with one of my favoritest people in the entire universe (my cousin Hannah), I popped on to Dell's website to see if they started carrying FitBits since the last time I looked. Mine went MIA ages ago and I've realized that the downword spiral of angst and yo-yoing really started once I was without it or my poor beloved BodyBugg. I know it's all psychological, but it is what it is .... and miracle of miracles, Dell has a whole bunch of activity trackers on their site now and I have a whole bunch of credit!

And I'm not getting a FitBit.

I saw that some of the options were available for immediate shipment and the FitBits wouldn't ship for one to two WEEKS. Hrmph.

So I started looking and googling and review reading and now I'm about to be the (hopefully) very proud owner of a Garmin Vivofit 3 with optional belt clip and two pretty pretty wrist band options to go with the default black!
And, of course, I've also been on ebay window shopping other band options already ☺

The preliminary estimate said that it should arrive this coming Wednesday. With the way Dell usually is with getting things to me, though, Monday or Tuesday wouldn't surprise me at all!

May so far ...

Truth be told? It's pretty much sucking out.
The whole cute little goal thingie I did?
That's been a whole lotta no.
The calendar, too, was WAY too ambitious.
I have gotten back on the recumbent bike, though ... occasionally ... and I haven't been reading instead of sleeping nearly as frequently ... and I refuse to quit in spite of the fact that my weight is still yo-yo-ing and I can't quite figure out what in feckin' hell to do to stop it.

May ..... or may not

So, it's May. I actually had this ready to post on May 1st .... at least mentally .... at least some of it.

I had the goals set up :

And then once I got my work done at work I put together a workout calendar thingie based off one of the darabee.com workouts. The site used to be neilarey -- home of many nerd-themed workout awesomeness.... but now a lot of those only exist if you do a google or Pinterest search for something like "nerd workout." I've saved/printed 16 of them so far so I should be able to tweak for many a month to come!
