Big Dream Project update and a new t-shirt
It is time to report and add my link on Vicki's blog Field Trips in Fiber for the Big Dream project. My project is myself. In January I purchased a fitbit and have tried to remain motivated to get myself feeling better physically. As you can see on my steps for the last four months that March I didn't quite make my goal. It is very interesting how life can get in the way. In March I had some family issues and caught a cold. I just wasn't mentally strong enough to keep these two events from impacting step count. I now see I have the same issues this month. I cold hung on thru the middle of last week and for example, I spent 2 1/2 hours on the phone yesterday with two family members dealing with a situation. I just have to be more conscious of stuff like this and make sure that I make the time to get my walking in.
I did get a number of steps in yesterday as I walked around a job site waiting for the water cooler to be delivered to the construction trailer. It was not the ideal place to walk as I had to watch for mud, but at least I did walk instead of just sitting in the trailer waiting on the fellow to show up. I am just going to have to learn from this and put myself first. I still have time in April, so it will be interesting to see if I can at least make up for lost steps and reach my goal for the month.
I got this Rolling Stones t-shirt in the mail yesterday. I have a Beatles t-shirt and a Motorhead t-shirt also coming. Once I get those I will have to see if I have enough shirts for the quilt I want to make.
