A few steps and a teensy blog post - Actifit Report: September 11 2019


I’m on deadlines. I had intended to take the night off of blogging. Just let it go. My brain is in knots about a writing project I’ve been struggling with. I can take a night off of posting! But then I couldn’t. I kept watching the clock creep toward midnight when I’ll lose my steps for the day, and finally I just buckled. No, no, no. I can’t just let my steps evaporate. Must post! Does this happen to anyone but me?

Well… I suppose there are worse addictions, right?

All my steps today were from dashing around the office today, and up and down stairs. I wouldn’t have walked even if I had time because it was cold and raining out. We seem to be locked into a wet, windy, stormy pattern. I know a lot of people whose basements are flooded. They are buying sump pumps and doing foundation work and stuff like that. We are fortunate to have bought a house up on a hill and rarely have any moisture problems.

What’s going to happen around here is that the weather is going to get much worse. It will happen within a few months and then I likely will not be out on the trails and at the dog park as much. Hopefully we will have some gorgeous fall weather before that happens. Honest to Pete, I saw the first tree that was in full color today. Just one. An early bird. All the rest are still green with maybe just a little tinge of yellow.

And when the weather does turn I’ll probably be getting to the gym more. It’s not as scenic as all my walking areas, so hopefully I can keep things interesting for ya! Ha ha.

Alright, friends. I’m out of time. Thanks for reading! Carry on.

I'm adding a picture my daughter took of me on a gorgeous day this summer when we were walking around one of the lakes so I can remember that it happened. We did actually have some fabulous weather this summer!

That is such a big, beautiful willow tree! Love that tree! 😊


It really is a stunning tree! Or one could also imagine that I just have really big, really green dreadlocks! 😆

@jayna - I have the same compulsion .... MUST POST....... I even tell myself "hey, it's only a $1 maybe, just let it go for tonight, lol. And here it is 1:00am and I'm still at this dang computer.
That's a nice summer pic of you by the lake and I also hope we have some beautiful fall weather for at least 3 or 4 weeks. Seems like we always get cheated out of spring and fall.


Ha ha, I know. This platform has turned me into a nocturnal zombie creature! Hope you get some nice fall weather. You deserve it after all the humidity!

I used to be heavily addicted to getting my steps posted daily as well 😅 ... Now I find myself in flux 🙆 .. Still getting my daily activity ✅, just not as consistent in posting 😶

Wishing you an amazing day ahead 🌄 Much Love 💖

I think some flux in energy for any social activity is normal. 😁
