Sleeping is hard!

Yeah, I didn't sleep very well last night at all.  I woke up before the alarm on my Fitbit went off, too!  I did NOT want to walk today.  I got up and did it anyway.  When I got home, I took some time to cool off and then did not want to do my workouts.  I did those too!  I was proud of myself for doing all that when I really didn't want to.  

I haven't done much else today, though.  I've just been staying in my room with the air conditioner!  It was extremely hot today.  Hurry up and get here Autumn!   I don't want cold weather, but cool weather, yes!  Cool enough to be comfortable in a hoodie. ^_^ I love wearing a hoodie and being all wrapped up in it.  It was so funny when my friend and I went to the beach earlier in the spring and I had to wear my hoodie almost the entire time! I didn't mind one bit. :p


Charging my Fitbit Charge 2

So I can't move until it's done. LOL No, really. I'll move if I have to. :p . I am sitting at my desk on the MBP and I just had a delicious Venti Cascara latte! ^____^  I went to the grocery store and got a few things earlier and then I came back and realized that I wanted Starbucks.  Since I could actually drive my car, I went! I went through the drive thru and got my favorite drink.  Cascara latte with almond milk FTW!  Also, as I was driving out of the drive thru, I saw Dookie the Corgi. <3 . He is so cute!  It was nice to see him. 

I left Starbucks and came straight home.  I am not going to over do it on my car.  I want it to be able to take me to the places I need to go.  I went by the recycle center while on my grocery trip and noticed that the bins are pretty full.  I'll just wait and take my recycling on Monday when I know they'll be empty.  It makes it so much easier!  Plus, there were some construction vehicles parked close to them.  They are working on the road a little ways up.  I've seen them doing it on my daily walk.  I'll try to hit the recycle center Monday while they are still working so their vehicles won't be in the way!

It was very nice to get back to my normal routine today.  I walked and then came home and relaxed and cooled off.  I then did my workouts and my French.  I had time to relax for a bit after that before fixing lunch.  I decided instead of waiting so late to make my blog post, that I'd do it now.  I had thought about packing up the MBP and going to Starbucks for several hours, but I decided to just run over and get my drink via the drive thru.  I am going to go at some point and sit in for a while.  It's been way too long!


Monday Madness FTW! :p

Sorry about that short post yesterday.  I wasn't near the Mac and I posted with my phone.  I really didn't want to post a lot that way but I wanted to get my post in.  So, today I went for my usual walk and came back and cooled off.  I then went back out to walk to the post office!  I had a stack of pen pal letters.  My friend picked me up at the post office and I rode with him on an errand and then he dropped me home.  When I got home, my packages were here.  No, not the MBP. :(  I did get the pretty Fossil wallet, my 12 Fitbit bands, and my washi.  Everything is so pretty!  The Fossil wallet is perfect for my needs.  It holds everything I need and it takes up less space!

The bands are all so pretty.  I have tried on the lime green, the blue, and now I'm wear the hot pink one. LOL  I was able to store them in some roll up pencil cases I got on Amazon some time ago.  They are all nice quality.  The washi is gorgeous!  It's even prettier in person than it was on the site.  A bonus item?  Yes! One of the regular rolls had a slim roll with it. Yay!  I love this particular brand of washi. It's great quality and it's always pretty!  It was a good mail day.  Tomorrow, my MBP should be here.  I am so ready for it!  I'll do a whole post about it tomorrow, I'm sure!

Variety, please!

I went on Amazon and looked at different bands for the Fitbit Charge 2.  I wanted some different colors, especially a blue color.  Well, I found a cool set of them that has 12 bands.  It has black, purple, pink, blue, lime, and more.  There are several different blue colors, two pinks, a red, a grey, a white.  They look pretty cool. They were less than $20 for the entire set.  I wanted to do the $25 order with free shipping, so I went to my wish list and tossed in some washi that was on my wish list.  It's the Molshine brand and they make great washi.  I will get all this for $15, because I have a ten dollar gift card. Yay!

My MBP is now in Kentucky.  It still says estimated delivery on Tuesday.  I hope it gets here before, but at this point, I'm just happy to know it's really on the way!  I also ordered a Fossil wallet on ebay last week.  It's used, but it still looks nice and it was really cheap.  I got it for less than 12 shipped!  The outside is rosy pink and the inside is colorful.  It's pretty.  I'll probably post it when I get it. :p  

I walked today and it was so much cooler than it has been and it was amazing.  It was overcast for part of my walk, but sunny for the rest.  It was so nice to walk when I wasn't dying. lol  I didn't even sweat too much.  I wish it could be like this everyday I walk.  Oh well, I'm sure it will get back to normal soon!  I came home and relaxed a bit before doing my workouts.  I did those and my French and then rested a while before having lunch.  I was hoping to get to the post office today.  My friend had said he'd come and try to fix my brakes today, but he didn't.  My other friend 'was busy' so she couldn't carry me to the post office.

Speaking of the post office, I'm SO behind on writing letters. I'm going to have to sit down tomorrow and write letters until my hand falls off. LOL  I'm so behind.   I wanted to go to the post office and get every letter there and then get all my letters caugh up at the same time.  Maybe I'll get there tomorrow.

Here is the picture of the bands:

Well then!

This was a day for sure!  I didn't walk or do my workouts, but I did my squats.  I was going to walk, but it was raining and I just didn't want to deal with that today.  I ended up hanging out in bed until after 4!  I didn't sleep, but I played on the phone, watched tv, and got on the Macbook.  I went to ebay this evening.  I looked at the Macbook Pro I mentioned yesterday and some others.  I found another one that was newer with a larger hard drive and I bought it. ^^;;;;;  I will be paying on it for a while, but I really needed a new computer.  It's a 2012 version and it has a 500gb hard drive which is larger than the one I was looking for.  According to the listing, it's refurbished by Apple. I hope it's in good condition.  I am so anxious to get it.  It already has the latest version of Mac OS installed, so I won't have to worry about that when I get it. 

I found a few other ones that were older that including extra software, but this one is pretty nice.  I am hoping that since it's from a store that is familiar with Macs, it will be good.  I wish they could just teleport it to me. LOL1  It has free expedited shipping, but the delivery window on the listing says July 5!  I am hoping it's mailed out tomorrow and I get it Friday. :p  It's going to be so cool.  It's 13" just like my Macbook because I have a nice laptop case that fits that size.  After using this one for 8 years, I don't really want or need a larger screen.  I think I will be happy with my purchase.  Of course I'll do a post about it when I get it.  

I hope to get back to my regular schedule tomorrow.  I know it doesn't hurt to miss a day every now and then. It's a break I probably needed.  I hope to get to at least 5000 steps before midnight, but I'm not going to stress if I don't!


Fitbit Charge 2

So, I haven't mentioned my Fitbit Charge 2 in awhile have I?  Well, I wanted to wait until I'd used the replacement one for a while.  It's great! It works well, it syncs without issues, and seems pretty accurate.  I'm quite happy with it.  I have been meaning to post about it for awhile now.  I have a screen protector on it to keep it from getting scratched up and that is working well, too.

I loved my Fitbit One, but I don't think I could ever be without a wrist model now.  I love that is motivates me during the day if I haven't gotten 250 steps for that hour. It's also fun to look at the heart rate when I'm doing some crazy cardio video! :p  I love that I can change the look of it.  Right now, I'm using the black aftermarket band I got.  It looks so classy! ^_^


What day is this again?

I think it's Thursday, but I'm not really sure at this point. lol  It's been a long hot day.  My walk was pretty brutal heat wise. It's scary that it's this hot and it's only May. Ugh!  When I got home, it took a while to cool off.  I did it by lying on my bed in my room with the air conditioning!  I did my workouts and my French lesson and then had lunch.  My friend had prep work to do for the trip, so we didn't walk today.  I don't know if I would have wanted to. I did want to go to the post office, but since we didn't walk, I didn't get to go. I'm hoping to go before I leave for the trip!  

I wrote out a list of things to carry on the trip. Of course this Macbook will be going so I can do daily beachy blog posts. ^_^  I also plan to carry my Fitbit charger and my extra bands. Who knows what I might want to wear while there.  Since it has to be charged every five days, I'll have to charge it during the trip!  I don't want my Fitbit to die while on vacation.

I'm over half way done with The Outsider and it's good!  I am not sure if I'll finish it tonight, but I'll probably get close if I don't.  It draws you in from the very beginning.  It's so good.  Classic King for sure!

I mentioned sometime ago that my replacement Fitbit Charge 2 had acted up and wouldn't sync. I've been using the first one.  I sent the other one back and they sent me a replacement again.  I fully charged it up and I'm wearing it now.  I hope this one will be with me for  long time.  Just in case anything goes crazy, I'm going to keep the first one so I'll have it as a backup if anything happens. I have faith that this one is going to work well for me and last for many years to come!  

 


Fitbit failures and a few other things!

So, today, all was well. I was wearing my new Fitbit and things were fine.  I had synced when I was at a certain point and went to sync again and nothing.  I reset my Fitbit, I did everything.  It didn't recognize it at all.  Luckily, I hadn't recycled the old Charge 2 so I set it up at a 'new' Fitbit.  I lost about two hundred steps, but it could have been worse!  After I got the old one set up and synced, I tried to do the new one and it wouldn't find it at all.  SO WEIRD. So, I'm back to my second one and I guess that is where I'll stay.  I did let Fitbit support know via Twitter.  I swear they are going to think I'm a nut.  I keep getting defective devices.  Oh well, the old one works good enough and I'm happy that I didn't lose a whole days steps as they would have sucked!

My Macbook charger came today. YAY! I can now charge my Macbook without worrying about burning the house down. LOL  I tried it and it worked just fine.  I also got a cool new strap for my Fitbit. It's pink with teal in the holes.  It isn't as dark pink as I thought it would be, but it's still pretty. I'm going to wear it tonight and see how I like it.  The material is nice and comfy!  Now if I can just keep this Fitbit Charge 2 running and syncing! :p

I just synced it and at first it wasn't doing it and I was about to cry on you. lol Luckily it synced and all is well!  My friend and I were going to walk tonight, but it's been storming here for a while.  I'm not sure if he'll still want to walk  If it clears off, perhaps.  I don't mind either way.  I did pretty well on my regular walk today and I got my workouts in.  If I don't want tonight, I won't be too disappointed.  I WOULD love to go to Starbucks though.  I haven't been at all this month. !!!!!


Two walks are better than one!

Yes, I got in two walks again today!  My Fitbit did pretty well.  It's not as many steps as my One had, but it's still pretty good.  I think I'm pretty much used to it by now.  Plus, this one does seem to do better so I'm happy with it.  I got in my regular walk today.  I came home and did my workouts.  I had lunch and then waited for my friend.  We walked down at the trail again.  We walked the same walk we did last night.  It was pretty nice.  I even got to pet and love on a Golden Doodle. ^_^ So cute!  

I only took one picture today on the trail. I thought I'd share it with you.  There are such pretty views along the trail.  I love seeing the river peeking through the trees!
