Housekeeping

No no, not THAT kind of housekeeping. I've been threatening to dust for days, but so far all I've done is glare at it, hoping it will slink away in terror. Unfortunately this is some hard core dust. Sigh.

I finally decided what to do about P365. You'll be delighted to know that I'm going to continue with it, with one big change: I'm no longer going to take pictures of myself while walking. I'm still going to walk (or Move Vigorously) every day, but you'll just have to imagine what that looks like. Instead I'm going to do a screen shot of my walk stats & post them to Facebook each day. I decided that it would be more motivating if I had to show people what I actually did (10 minute stroll around the mall, or 30 minute session on the Gazelle - which would you be less ashamed to post?). I'll probably do a weekly summary on here in some manner.

If I'm not posting walking pictures that means that I have to actually be intentional about taking real pictures. Here is the one I've taken so far today:

Empty bag that once held cookies

So, you know, I'm pretty excited about it. 2015 is gonna be a GREAT year!

P.S. My dad informed me that I could scoot around in that little rolling chair thing so fast he could barely keep up. That made me laugh out loud - little Bug on the move!

    1. Oh no, there will still be selfies - I just won't be walking when I take them :)

  2. Yeay...glad you are continuing with P365. I would have felt lonely if you had abandoned it! I think posting a screenshot from your exercise app is a great idea for keeping you motivated and accountable.

    That empty bag that once held cookies looks like a sad little baggie. Would look so much better with the cookies still in it! Hope they tasted as yummy as I'm suspecting they did. Now I want a cookie.

    I'm picturing you in the rolling chair thing...probably laughing and giggling as your dad was chasing you!

    1. Those cookies were GOOD - I call them cookie crack. I could eat a whole bag at one sitting, but I'm proud to say that it took me 5 days to eat all of these :)

  3. I'm glad you are going to continue. I found that after I quit, I really got away from taking pictures and therefore quit documenting what was going on in my life. I am thinking of starting back up!

  5. An intentional photo a day sounds like a good goal! I can see how walk photography would get old. Kind of like photographing every street in London. :)

    That's funny about the chair! I didn't realize from the photo that it was self-propelled.

    1. Based on the pictures I posted yesterday, I think it's going to take some time to get back into the swing of things :)
