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!


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:

Saturday struggles!

So, I woke up this morning and I was so tired.  I truly wanted to go back to bed and skip my walk and everything else.  I texted a friend and he mentioned possibly going out of town to walk.  That perked me up a bit so I got up and did my usual morning prep.  Well, he didn't want to go until l or so.  I was motivated then, so I told him I'd walk until 1 and he could pick me up.  I walked and got past the half way mark and no messages.  I walked back to a place that is before his street and texted him.  He was asking if I still wanted to walk! LOL I was almost back home and I was roasting!  I walked to his house and told him that if he wanted to go to Reidsville and check out the thrift stores and the pawn shops there, that would be good with me.  With walking to his house, I got in the same about of distance as if I'd gone all the way home.  

He agreed to this new plan and we went to Reidsville.  I went with him in two thrift stores and he went in two pawn shops.  Afterwards, we went to Carmela's pizza and split a pizza.  Delicious!  I love their food. After that, we headed back here.  I came home and changed and then did my workouts, my French lesson, and today's squats.  It was so not fair because I think all five of the workout videos had squats in them. LOL  

I put a small load of clothes in to wash and I decided to get in a good bath.  That was quite nice.  I am going to relax until bedtime.  I'm really tired.  I haven't read since before the beach trip and I miss it.  Maybe I'll get the Kindle out and read tonight.  I had started a book before the trip, but I hadn't gotten into it very far.  I may just start another one and come back to that.  I need to get back into my reading.  I've been slacking on it since the beach!


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! ^_^
