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!

Update perhaps?

Well, I walked tonight with the new Fitbit Charge 2 and I am pretty sure it's working a lot better than the old one.  I think my steps were pretty accurate.  I'll see tomorrow on my regular walk.  That is the truest test.  I think it's going to work out well. It seems to keep up with my steps and I didn't see it stopping at all.  I am anxious to go on tomorrow's walk and see how the steps / accuracy is! ^_^  I took a couple of pictures on the trail, enjoy!

Tuesday thoughts...

So, I'm posting early today so I don't do like I did last night!  I walked further today on my walk since I needed to go to the post office.  I picked up my piece of mail. It was a pen pal letter that needed postage.  They considered it a package and not a letter because it felt like it was too thick to be just a letter.  It  WAS just a letter.  UGH.  I paid the $2.50 to get it and I also got five international stamps.  I then headed on my way back home.  I didn't do my workouts when I got here as I was extremely hot and very tired.  I'll either do them later tonight or I may skip them today.  Why?  Well, I am going for another walk later, so I might not get a chance to do them.  I am not sure exactly when we are going to walk, but we will sometime.

I got my replacement piece for my Fitbit Charge 2 today.  I charged the battery to full and I'm wearing it now.  I already have a good feeling about this one. It's going to count steps, distance, and everything else correctly!  It charged easily and it's syncing well, too.  I'm quite pleased.  I will see how it tracks on tonights walk and tomorrow's too.  My usual daily walk is the best test for it.

When I went to the post office, luckily, the nice lady was working.  There is a guy that works the counter sometimes and I DO NOT like him.  I was so happy to see her and not him.  He is a pain in the butt and acts like an ass!  The lady that waited on me today is always sweet as she can be.  Her name is Queen and she is certainly as nice as one!  I also had to stop to get my prescription.  The guy at the pharmacy kept putting my birthdate in wrong and he was cracking us both up.  He tried to put in that I was born in the twenties at one point! LOL!  It was hilarious.  I got my script and headed home.  It was the first good experience I've had at this pharmacy since having to switch to it after Kmart closed.

I am not sure when my friend will come for us to walk.  I hope it's not too long.  I have to put my socks and shoes on.  I also have to put my bra back on and I'm not doing that until I absolutely have to! LOL!  I finished the first Oz book on my walk today and I'm just getting started on the second one.  The second one has Jack Pumpkinhead in it so I'm quite happy! ^_^


I'm off to Oz!

On today's walk, I finished the Anne books.  I love that series so much.  I wish Lucy Maud Montgomery had written more books in the series or at least a follow up about ten years after Rilla of Ingleside.  Oh well.  I enjoyed listening to them again.  Tomorrow, I start on the wonderful Oz books!  I downloaded all the official L. Frank Baum ones from Librovox.org and I will start with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz tomorrow. I only loaded the first 8 or so.  I'll load the rest after listening to the first four or five.  This should keep me going for a while!  I love all the characters in the Oz books.  My favorites being The Woozy, Jack Pumpkinhead, Scraps, and more. ^___^ I'll be visiting old friends.

My walk today was perfectly great weather wise.  It didn't rain at all.  Yay! It did rain later in the afternoon, but it wasn't for very long.  I got everything done on my regular schedule today.  I have been using my coffee grinder each time I make a cup of coffee.  I finally got the right combo of how much to use and which way to grind it.  It's so delicious and it smells so good when and after I grind it!  

My replacement for my Fitbit was supposed to be delivered tomorrow, and now it's saying Tuesday! :(  I really wish it would get here. I'm hoping it tracks steps better.  I've noticed that this one is doing a little better, but it's still not as accurate ss it should be.  It tracks heart rate, and sometimes it says I don't have any! LOL  I'll look at it and says, "My Fitbit thinks I'm dead!" lol  I am hoping that all the kinks will be worked out in the new one they send.  

I ordered a charger for my Macbook on Thursday but they haven't shipped it yet. Phooey!  I also ordered one other band for my Fitbit.  It's pink and teal.  I love the look of it on Amazon.  I hope it's as pretty in person!  I will probably order more bands in the future. I wanted this one from the first time I saw it.  It has a different clasp than all the others, so I'll have to get used to that.  I wish it and my charger would ship!


Not too bad....

The day that is!  I got in my walk at my regular time.  The Fitbit wouldn't connect to my phone for some reason.  I don't know why it was doing this.  I have a replacement coming so hopefully I'll be on track soon.  Fitbit is sending me a replacement for mine.  I should get it by next week.  I can't wait!

I came home from my walk and did my workouts.  It was pretty warm on my walk today.  Today's workouts were all abs.  That was insane, but I got through!  I went to the park later and walked a little bit more but not a whole lot. I came home and my friend called so I went up to see Cocoa and ended up seeing all the dogs! LOL  All five of them! :P Her mom's two and her three!  I had to come home and wash everything I had on from all the dirt and paw prints. My clothes also smelled like dog. LOL!  It was worth it!  They are all so fun.

They gave me a bowl of leftover tortellini to take home with me. I know what I'm having for dinner tomorrow! :P I love that stuff and I never get it unless I eat it at their house.  I am always happy for the leftovers and they make too much and then no one up there wants to eat the leftovers.  I will eat them! lol

 


Goodness!

So, today, I got up and got in my regular walk.  I was hoping my friend would want to walk again, but he didn't.  I went to Target and got some money!  How you ask?  Well, the Fitbit that I bought earlier went on sale and was $30 less.  I got the difference.  I had to go twice because I thought they would just be able to do the price difference, and I didn't take the box.  I only took the receipts.  I had to come home and get the  box and go back.  This was stressful as my car is acting up horribly.  I got it done though. Good thing too, today was the last day to get the difference!  Twenty of that will go to bill for this Fitbit.  The other ten was for fun!  I have been eating very well lately and I'm seeing progress.  I decided to treat myself to some comfort food.  I went to McDonald's.  I shouldn't have gotten it, but it was so delicious! :P

I ate in the park and PoGo'd while I was there.  I had almost hatched a 10k egg on today's walk and I finished the rest in the park.  I got a Snorlax. :D It's been a loooong time since I have gotten one!  I also hit a few Pokestops. There were some people that took over a Valor gym.  They were Instinct and I was tempted to go take it for Mystic, but I was nice and didn't. :p  

We had local elections today so I went to vote.  I got an I voted sticker.  It is already in my bullet journal. ^_^  I meant to ask the ladies at Target for a Spot the dog sticker but didn't.  I know they give them out to kids, but I wanted one myself. lol  I'm such a silly!

After all the Target stuff and before McDonald's, I went out and mowed the front lawn.  It was starting to look shabby again.  The back is okay.  I did a big portion of it a few days ago.  The other part should be okay for a few days.
