Beach trip denied?

Well, it's possible!  My friend told me today that our trip to Myrtle Beach later this month may have to be cancelled.  I'm not really very happy about that.  Hopefully things will work out.  

In other news, I'm so behind on writing pen pal letters, but I am really not in the mood tonight to write them.  I hope to get them all done tomorrow.  All eleven of them. @_@; 


Meh

I want to go to bed. I also want to eat.  I think I'll just get in bed and read.  I don't know.  It's been one of those days!  I had to run an errand downtown, so I stopped by the post office.  I had five letters.  This is good, but I haven't replied to the ones I had already. ^^;  AND  I had two yellow slips in my box that I need to go to counter for.  The counter is only open until 3pm.  I'll have to make another trip tomorrow and hope my poor old broken down car makes it!

I SHOULD get my replacement part for my Fitbit tomorrow.  I hope so.  I am hoping to find it tracks better. 


More Fitbit woes!

Seriously!  Today, I tracked my walk as I usually do with the Fitbit.  Well, it wouldn't connect to my phone to do the tracking.  I don't know why it wouldn't connect.  Also, when I've synced it various times today it's been bitchy too. :(  I think I'm going to have to get another replacement.  It's so frustrating!  I really love this device.  I want it to track my steps correctly and connect to my phone.

In other news, I started sleep in the Fitbit app itself last night and that did the trick!  I started sleep in the app, and then when I got up today, I clicked 'I'm awake' and then synced the tracker and that worked fine!  I put the Fitbit app on my ipod touch since I always turn my phone off when I'm sleeping.  Now if I can get the steps and syncing fixed, I'll be a happy camper! 


Good grief!

So, I'm still frustrated about the Fitbit situation.  Then, tonight, I went to do something on the Macbook and Chrome said it wouldn't be updating anymore unless I updated the Mac to a later version of OS X.  Well, when I had that issued the other year, I didn't fully upgrade to where I was before.  I just finished upgrading and then I had to re-download and re-install Chrome just so I could post this!  :P

I am talking to Fitbit support about the Fitbit issues.  I'm working on the Macbook more after posting this.  I want to see if there is anything else that needs updating while I'm at it.  It took almost two hours just to do the first update. Sheesh!


Fitbit Frustrations!

So, it's been officially a week with the new Charge 2 and it's just as bad as the other one. I am now not sure if it's just not as accurate as the One or if I was just unlucky enough to get two trackers that are messed up.  I don't know what do to.  I am pushing myself to get in my steps and it's hard.  I love everything about this tracker except the step situation. :( 


Fitbit Charge 2 gets returned!

Well, today, I noticed that my Charge was not counting steps right along my walk.  I logged my route on two different other fitness apps and it showed over six miles and the Fitbit only had me a little under 5!  I checked via Google Maps and I did walk six miles.  I contacted Fitbit, but since the place I got it from is not an 'authorized retailer' I have to go through them.

Well, I contacted them and they said to package it up and send it back and they'd send a replacement.  The shipping label they gave me needed postage and I am broke until next month! LOL!  I went on the site and decided to print one from there and get the box ready to ship when I had the money to ship.  The label they gave me to print online doesn't need postage! LOL!  Me: @_@ YAY!  So, I packed it up securely and I ran out and dropped it in a local box.  It has a tracking number, so I can keep up with when it gets to them.  I already am using my One.  I just hope it lasts until the new Charge 2 comes. It's so weird, I only had the Charge since Saturday, but I'm already used to it being on my wrist and I miss it!  Hopefully the new one will track better.  If not, I have a solution.  Today, I changed the walk to the one my fitness tracker said and I got the steps I should have gotten.  I don't want to have to do this if I don't have to, so hopefully the new tracker will be more accurate! ^_^


Fitbit Charge 2 day four

So, I've been using my Fitbit Charge for four full days as of today.  I am unhappy at the difference in steps from my One.  I'm having to work a lot harder just to get to my goal of steps each day.  Also, my sleep tracking is not doing right either.  I contacted Fitbit support today, but I didn't get any useful help.  They did give me a case number and I'm to contact them in a few days if it doesn't clear up.  I really hope it does. I want to love my new Charge 2.  I just want it to track my steps like my One and I'd also like my sleep to be better detected.  You can't start sleep mode on the Charge 2, it goes into sleep mode for you.  I preferred starting the One to sleep.  The Charge 2 keeps saying I'm not going to bed for hours and then I'm up and then I go back to bed!  I am hoping that a few more days will get everything back on track.


Hmmm

Well, it was cool today when I started my walk and it didn't get much warmer as I went along!  It did get warmer after I got home from my walk though.  I got hot after my walk too. I did my workouts and they were all cardio! LOL!  I got through that and then did my French lesson.  I noticed that my Fitbit today seemed to be more in tune with my steps.  I did walk a bit further today and got more steps.  I think it's starting to adjust to me. I decided to try sleep mode last night in sensitive instead of normal. That was insanity! LOL!  My sleep patterns were horrid.  I put it back to normal for tonight. :p

I ran to the post office today. I had one letter.  I only have one other already.  I only have one stamp left though.  I wished I'd gotten some stamps this month.  Maybe I'll get a windfall and I can get some stamps. If not, my letters will be delayed on sending.  I hate that, but I can't mail them without stamps!

 


Puppy Breath!!!!!

My friend recently got a puppy.  I hadn't seen it until today.  I was coming back from my walk and I saw her in the yard. I thought she was walking Cocoa the mini wiener dog that I love so much, but it was the puppy.  Since I haven't met him yet, I had to go see.  He has puppy breath and he is adorable!  He is a Boxer pup and so cute.  He whined when I left. Awww! I told her I was going to steal him. lol

I drove down to the post office this evening after going to McDonald's.  I had an alert on my phone that through the McDonald's app, you could get any medium McCafe beverage for FREE with a $1 order!  I decided to treat myself to a fry. :P  I used mobile payment for the first time there. It was pretty cool.  I ordered and paid.  I typed which 'bay' I was in and they brought my order out to me.  Pretty neat.

Since I was out, I went to the post office.  I had seven letters. YIKES!  I already have four to write and I have exactly 8 stamps.  HELP!!!!! lol  I am going to write the four I already have tonight or tomorrow and then I'll get to the others.  I hope to get some stamps asap!

I am STILL waiting on my payment to clear at Fingerhut so they will ship my Fitbit.  I'm getting so impatient.  I wish I had the money to order one from Fitbit themselves. I would probably already have it. I hate waiting.  I swear I've had other things clear the bank that have come out after that transaction.  So annoying!  If I had anything to sell, I would certainly do it.  I thought at one time of opening an Etsy shop, but I need a sewing machine if I want to do anything with fabric.  I can do repairs on my stuff, but to create something, I'd want a sewing machine!

I wish I still had some stuff to sell on Ebay.  Any extra money would help me a lot.  I shouldn't have gotten anything today from McDonald's, but the free coffee was too tempting! :p  I have money on my Starbucks card, so I'm covered there.  I hope to get over there soon.  I haven't had any since the beach trip.  I am hoping they have cascara syrup.  I want a cascara latte!

I got in a good walk today and then came home and did my workouts. I'm glad it was arm day, because my poor butt is still sore from yesterday's butt workouts. lol  OUCH!  I finished the book I was reading last night and started on a book about Ted Bundy. I've read many books about him, but not this one.  It's good so far.  

OH! I forgot to mention.  Sometime ago, I found a cute double pencil / pen case on Amazon that I loved.  It was an Adventure Time pen case with Finn and Jake on it.  I loved it but it was over twenty dollars and that didn't include shipping!  I recently found it on ebay by accident and I ordered it. I came today and it's so cute!  Here is a couple of pictures:
