#GoTheDist: Feb 2014

I knew February was going to be down due to three+ days of lost tracking, but it actually wasn’t as bad as I feared. February 2014: 69.miles walked (165,667 steps), 16.69 miles biked. Great, no. Good? Yes. For the record: February 2013 20.52 miles walked 54.15 miles biked Definitely walking more than I did, still […]


Officially Team @FitBit

my Jawbone apparently celebrated my two millionth step a little too hard last Friday, because now it’s dead. Utterly and totally toast. So I went out and got what I wanted back in May: the Fitbit Flex. I will have lost 3.5 days of data (midday Monday – Thurs PM), but no real idea on […]


#GoTheDist 2014: One Month in

January stats: 185,545 steps 80.3 miles walked 69.3 miles ridden Happy all around especially with the polar vortex. I’ll have to push it, but the Q1 goals (700,000 steps, 300 miles walked and 75 miles) are well in reach. Especially the bike. Proud of myself for regular-ish gym attendance. I lost the DietBet, but I […]


Lessons Learned: Coffee Grinds

tea leaves? Who needs tea leaves? I can tell my fortune in coffee grinds thanks to the Polar Vortex making it too cold to walk to Dunkin’ daily. That, and I looked at my Mint figures and realized I spent $516.23 at coffee shops last year. That is INSANE and needs to stop, or at […]


2014: you’re looking pretty good

10 days in and January is looking pretty good, #GoTheDist wise: Steps:: 42,324 Miles Walked: 17.8 (both as of January 9) Miles Biked: 41.44 (as of January 10) Pretty impressed with the foot totals in light of the polar vortex and I’ve been to the gym every other day. I am proud of that and […]


#GoTheDist and DietBet: miniupdate

so after (over)thinking about it, I decided to join a DietBet. While they didn’t work perfectly for me, they were a good jump start and that’s what I’d like about now. I also think I’m in a better frame of mind for it then I was when I took a break last year. As an […]


2013: Pretty Well Done

Perfect? No Well done? Absolutely That graph is from when I restarted through today. Was the year perfect? Nope. But I ended 2013 17.3 lbs less than where I started it. That’s good. I was very good with mini goals and quarterly goals this year. Time to look back at 2013 and set some new […]


#GoTheDist 2013: Went

I did it, I did it. Yes, you should read that in a complete sing-song voice since I am wearing a pink tiara. Been a good #GoTheDist year, despite a rough start after which I revised my original goal of 750 miles down to 500. Then, in July, I realized my initial goal was doable […]
