I am a genius. Truly. I wore my pedometer to work today as I knew I would be walking all over the place. I just got home and took my pedometer off only to realize it had not registered a single step all day. Apparently, when it hits 99,999 steps you have to reset it. Ugh! (And, I'm usually the one who gripes at my husband for not reading directions.) Thus my steps from yesterday are inaccurate. Who knows how far into my walk it was when I hit 99,999. At least I caught it before I took my evening walk.

I'm sorry for your loss Sarah. And, Anne I hope you recover quickly. Sending prayers both of your ways.

I hope everyone else has better luck than I have today!

Loren, I have been tracking the steps for this group for a very long time and I have never known anyone to get over 100,000 steps in a day. Very few of us even hit that mark in a week. I would guess that you accidentally hit reset. I have done that several times myself.

I will be posting the winners of last week tomorrow. I am just too tired to do it tonight.

It wasn't 100,000 in a day. I had not been reseting the pedometer every day. Rather, I was just subtracting the accumulating total from the balance I noted the previous day. I download all of my activity onto a website through my health insurance, but I usually only download it every week or two. I just didn't realize the pedometer stops counting at 99,999 which requires me to reset it.

Evening teamies,

Loren ask Santa for a fitbit. Youve been a very good sassy.

Just got off work going to cook dinner. Tommorrow is my day off and I gave myself permission to sleep in and laze around in hopes of getting better. This stuff is hard to slip. I wanted to eat ,more,more,more but I havnt.

Cooking dinner ,and the voice, way to regroup Kat, Laurie
I want to be a free spirit in a grown up life!

Evening Sistas...the end of a busy productive day. Went out for my afternoon walk & it's windy...& cold!! Definitely cools off once the sun goes down. I WAS going to wear my new sweats today...they fit realy nice...but they are about 3 inches too long, so I will have to hem them...phooy. Finally broke down & ordered an iPod so I can take my music around with me.

Back leg lifts-30 ea leg (doubt I'll get anymore in after Monica aets through with me)

Gotta head for PT, then home for The Biggest Loser & The Voice...don't forget to vote!

TTY tomorrow,
