Why I've never!..

But I have now. Have you??

I just went through and used the Reports to look at my fitness minutes over time, cardio tracking, miles, etc. It's enlightening.

I was kicking major booTAY in June and July. 1700-1900 fitness minutes. Whoo! I was doing the BootCamp challenge at that time, too. Whoa.

Now, not so much. August was a schlumpy month for me, and so was November. I'm doing well now, though. I have nearly half the fitness minutes this month, today being the 8th day, as I had for the whole month of Nov LOL. Yikes. I think I'm going to earn my 1000 fitness minutes badge this month. Good. I did not like not getting one for last month, but that was nobody's fault but my own.

I've never thought of myself as much of a holiday person, but last year and this, I seem to have been bitten by the bug. I have christmas music playing here at work on my workstation. Mannheim Steamroller and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. We might actually have decorations up in the house and lights up outside before Christmas Eve LOL Yay!

I've never thought I'd be the person to yearn to be outside, to walk, to run.. RUN? yea, run, outside, in the air, the brisk, wet, damp, cold air. I'm getting antsy to get outside. I think we're going to have to hit the golfcourse this weekend, rain not withstanding.

Why I've never! But I have now. What about you?

    Hey Candy! The reports tell pretty interesting stories don't they? I took a look at them a few months ago and every now and again I revisit them.

    LOVE Transiberian Orchestra especially at this time of the year! emoticon

    I know exactly what you mean about being outside now. It started snowing a few hours ago and even though it's 9:35 on Sunday night and I have a ton of stuff to do, I'm thinking I'll go and walk in the snow!

    Good for you on the fitness stuff! It truly does get to be almost addicting. I've had to take a couple days off because I was pounding my feet too hard earlier in the week and an old injury is threatening to take me down for the count. Dont want that!!
    I'm not so much for the Christmas stuff this year. I'd like to do some serious scaling back from here on out and husband is all for it but it might not happen because his girl really depends on routine and tradition. Sigh! I'm trying not to be a Scrooge though.

    I just found that report about a month ago. It's pretty neet! Glad you are getting back on track. Me, I couldn't stand the thought of a 20 min walk in this down pourand then having to ride the bus overpacked with loud highschool kids today so I had DH pick me up. I really wish there was another Jingle Bell race this weekend! And next.

    I would not worry about a few sluggish months if I were you. Because overall you are doing terrific! emoticon

    I am glad to hear you getting the Christmas spirit. It is hard for a lot of people to feel jolly this time of the year. emoticon

    Wow! You WANT to run outside in this weather! That is truly wonderful! emoticon I am not a emoticon cold weather person. I prefer to exercise home or at the gym. emoticon

    I think November was a slacker month for a lot of folks, myself included. Not sure what was up with that. I think between the Halloween candy fretting and the countdown to Thanksgiving sucked the motivation out of a lot of us. Here's to not letting that happen in December! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon You're a RUNNER!
