I have recently been introduced to the FitBit. It was a gift and it is super fun!
You all know I am a fitness/health guru. I am constantly trying to find the best workouts, chiseling muscle routines, healthy eating plans, and diets. Through all of this I have become a healthier person. I no longer think that I will be prettier if I am a size negative zero. I really only thought like that for a year a few years ago. I now know that I have a 10-15 pound range and both ends are very healthy. One end may be more muscle and one more thin, but both are ok. I know what I need to do to be my healthiest, I know when I don’t do that, accept it and start new the next day. I have plans on using my interest in these areas to become a personal trainer.
Enough of that ramble.
Even though I have come to this realization for me, I also know I need accountability so I don’t go crazy with laziness or gluttony. 😉 The FitBit is great for that. It keeps track of everything! I can track my calories burned and eaten, how much sleep I get and its quality, my activities and how many steps I take in a day. I am currently around 13,000 steps a day. 🙂 You can also link up with friends and have a healthy health competition.
I highly recommend this for EVERYONE. Such a great gift and tool and toy. 🙂

Our world has been spinning at high speed lately. I feel like we are always at high speed and then more things go into our schedule, but they are all good things. We are moving quickly, but we are doing it together (for the most part) and praising God for the blessings! 🙂
For my husband, MBA classes have begun. How he is able to work full time and be an awesome daddy on top of going to school full time blows my mind, but he does it. It adds a little extra chaos to all of us, but he surely bears the brunt of the load.
For me, on a personal level, my eating and working out too a hiatus this summer, so I am back on my strict schedule of working out and eating somewhat right. 😉 Teaching and taxi driving has been put back in motion as well.
The kids are back to school (at home) and each have 1 sport activity as well as a church activity they attend each week. By Friday they are just as tired as my husband and I. They are still mourning the loss of their Riley cat. My oldest was the most outwardly sad in the beginning, has recovered quite well and talks about all the pets he will have when he is big. My daughter, who was the most attached, holds it all in. This concerns me a little bit. She will say things on occasion that let us know she is still thinking of Riley. She is trying to bond with the other cat now, which is kind of a cute thing to watch. My youngest, who is my old soul, was the one who went to Stormy right after Riley died to let her know what happened. He still misses her. He is also concerned that about Stormy’s buddy being gone. We can’t sure if he is more sad for himself or Stormy.
So, nothing drastic in our world. We count our blessings for that. We seem to be surrounded by friends who are suffering and we know we should thank God for our blessings as often as we pray for their lives to be mended.
