Jesus said, Love one another as I have loved you.

�The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.� The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, and none of those who take refuge in Him will be condemned� (Psa 34:18�19, 22).

My goal is 10,000 steps per day. It's becoming more difficult now that tax season has started, but if I keep up my goal to stand 10 minutes every day and do steps, I hope to make the goal.

I think I have achieved the "sweet spot" with regards to my daily goal. 20,000 steps per day or a weekly goal of 140,000 appears to be the numbers I need to achieve. Coming to this conclusion has been a part of my lifestyle change journey that I embarked back in 2009. I continue to re-adjust my goals as necessary. My goal is to continue keeping my Active Minutes above 120 minutes per day. I will also be tracking my mileage with my goal to walk 10 miles per day. I will also be tracking my floors climbed but as I don't really encounter many floors in my travels I will be interested in seeing how high I can get this number on a daily basis. Keep moving people, I know I will! DON'T GIVE UP!!!

A BIG THANKS TO ALL OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN USING THE EDIT BUTTON WHEN YOU POST!!!

I continue to be very impressed by your daily steps! emoticon

I love all the activity on this thread! Welcome to each and every one of you and I hope that you accomplish your goals this week. I WOULD LOVE TO GIVE A BIG THANKS TO ALL WHO JOINED THIS THREAD THIS PAST WEEK! We continue to be a mind-boggling 42 strong this past week! That is the same number as last week. I continue to be amazed at your step counts, all of you should be very proud of yourselves! emoticon emoticon emoticon

We are still #1 in the Computer & Electronics category?! That continues to be amazing! As of the posting of this post, we are now at (drum roll please!) 128,023 members strong! That is 222 more than last week! Compared to last week's membership increase, that is 45 less new members. Thanks to the annual Xmas membership increase out numbers have jumped dramatically and we hav e poked our head through the 128,000 level and now have our eyes set on the 129,000 level. This continues to be simply amazing!
emoticon Holy moley!

I was recently playing with the FitBit App for Windows and clicked on the floors portion of the app. There I found a link that offering more information on how this data was calculated. The page is called "How does my FitBit device calculate my daily activity?" and it is a wealth of new information regarding how the various data items are calculated and collected. I was familiar with some of the information but the description of how it is used to calculate your personal data was fascinating. This is a recommended quick read. (And, careful, don't fall down any "rabbit holes" while there!) Here is the link for the page:

emoticon Welcome to all of our new team members and thank you for joining our weekly steps goal!!!

I love my Ionic watch. This past week my Ionic watch's step count was 647 less steps than my One or -0.4% difference! This past week I noticed that both of my FitBit devices were very similar on a daily basis. This is becoming very interesting as it appears that they are in sync. I continue to compare the data and the steps, distance, active time, floors, and distance are relatively the same. The calories are very different and I think that is more due to the heart rate device on my Ionic miscalculating my calories burned. I tend to trust my One's calorie calculations much more. emoticon

I recently received an invite to join a FitBit Beta group for a new sleep score function that is being tested by FitBit. Those users who own a Charge 3, Versa, or Ionic (those watches that track heart rate 24/7) were extended an invitation. Unfortunately, the Beta group is closed to new members as it has reached its quota. Did you accept your invitation? I did. The big takeaway so far is that certain features of my nightly sleep are now being given numerical values which are then compared to averages of comparable value and produce a numerical value typical to normal grade school grading, i.e., A=Excellent, B=Good, C=Average, and D=Poor. You also take a short survey where you are asked certain questions about your previous night's bedtime routine and have an opportunity to insert a comment. I find this comment aspect helpful as I am able to write down why my previous evening's sleep was amazing or poor. I hope that the good people at FitBit will add this feature permanently as it is another puzzle piece in understanding ME!

I still continue to lose more weight. I attribute my recent weight loss to a change I made in my eating habits. I love to eat and I never seem to get full. I have to make a very conscious effort to monitor my calories on a daily basis. I begin my day with a light breakfast, some milk and some type of egg sandwich. At work, I don't eat during my breaks, instead choosing to use this time for walks inside our building. I listen to podcasts or music and use my phone to catch up on emails, read, and play games. I find this is very helpful in achieving my daily step goals since I stopped attending the gym (Due to a recent lifestyle change). I drink 6-9 cups of water during the day and eat my "lunch" in the evening. I will have a small dinner later in the evening. I have been also trying to get to bed earlier so this change has definitely helped, too. All of this has resulted in a noticeable drop in my daily calories and my relationship with food. I have literally cut close to 1,000 calories on a daily basis (and sometimes have to push myself to hit 2,000 calories! This is a good change and one not certainly for everybody (or anybody in fact) but it appears to be working for me.
UPDATE: I continue with following this radical plan and it continues to work for me as I am losing more weight. I have dropped 34 pounds in the last eight months! Also, I have done some further research into this new lifestyle of mine and think my method can be classified as fasting. Now I am not starving myself, I am merely choosing to stay away from food for a certain period of time. I am still getting all of my necessary nutrition on a daily basis. I am really loving this lifestyle.
UPDATE TO THE UPDATE
I am truly amazed at how this change in eating habits has positively affected me. I have plenty of energy, find myself sometimes "forcing" myself to eat, and getting much more sleep. While my initial foray into the healthy living world back in 2009 was life-changing, this intermittent fasting lifestyle has been life and mind-altering.
UPDATE TO THE UPDATE TO THE UPDATE
I continue down this path of delaying my lunch and dinner to the end of my day and I continue to enjoy success. The recent holidays did proved to be challenging but following this path has allowed me to get back on schedule with my healthier lifestyle. I am truly pleased with these results.

So do you make New Year's resolutions? I never have as I think the best time to start something is when you are ready to start and not some arbitrary date. I started my healthier lifestyle in December 2009. I imagine if I would have delayed my change until January 2010 I probably would have failed. I was ready in December and needed to start then. Thank goodness I am the way I am!
Nevertheless, the start of a new year is a great place to take stock of where you are at and what you would like to accomplish in the future. So, with that in mind, here are some links for interesting ideas for the new year.
AND REMEMBER, KEEP MOVING! emoticon

Another week in the books! This past week I averaged 21,216 steps per day for a weekly total of 148,515 steps. I averaged 134 Active Minutes this past week for a total of 943 Active Minutes for the week. I traveled an average of 10.65 miles per day for a grand total of 74.53 miles for the week and I climbed 48 wind-aided floors this past week. I am definitely ready to move on to next week, I hope that you are, too!
