ANother step in the right direction.

I slipped, I am back, but am just hitting my low point again, the point is I am back on it. I am using my fitbit to stay on my steps for the day. Since getting it in June I have increased the steps several times so that when it is easy to hit 10,000 I push it to 12,000 a day or as of this last week 14,000 The idea is that when I do not have to do a lot more to hit it then just what I can get at work, I need to up it so I am doing better. Last week was 14,300, If I keep it up this week I may be looking at 15,000 before too long. On days when I am short on steps, I take a walk. So far things are going well, and I hope that I can keep it up. The thing that makes me happiest about it is that it keeps me honest. I used to have big days, and then really lazy ones. Now on the lazy ones I know I am being lazy and by how much so can improve instead of just writing it off as a lazy one and not realizing how much I was being lazy. If I do not make it to my goal, it is on purpose. and that is ok too. :)
This morning, while taking extra steps to get water I realized something fun. Now that I am down 20 pounds since September again, I am going to start lifting with curls and the like the weight I have lost. It will serve as a reminder of how far I have come, but also as my weight goes down, my lifting will go up. Dropped 30 pounds? 30 pound curls or military press. If things slow then I can always increase my number or reps. The idea being that as I drop it all, I am "Picking it up" at the same time, thus helping loose it more and then pushing myself more.
I have a long way to go. 100 pounds from now seems like a huge gap, but Little by little with my tracker to help me stay on it, I will get there.
