Day 13 time for a walk

Sun seems to be hiding behind a cloud today, I think the temperature only rose to mid sixties.

We needed some shopping so tried the Mercadona store for a change and managed to get most things on the list. We also paid a visit to MediaMart to see their prices on a FitBit that I have wanted for some time. It was a little dearer than I could get on Amazon in England so we tried the Alcampo store next. They had the same machine €15 dearer but in red my favourite colour. I asked if they would price match and they did plus an extra €1 off, so I am now the proud owner of a FitBit Charge.

I tried and tried to connect it to my iPad until I reached screaming point, over to Mr Fixit. Chris then spent quite sometime only to find my IPad is too old, this looks like it's going to be an Expensive way of tracking my steps if I have to have a new iPad ! However he found a way we can connect to my main computer back home and then transfer it or something to my iPad.

I am hoping the fitbit will encourage me to take more exercise to add to the Candis diet plan I am on. I'm afraid I am not going to be running marathons as my own knee, as opposed to my metal knee, has been really playing me up.

If it makes you feel any better ... I don't really look at anything else but the Fitbit itself. The goal is to get in a certain amount of exercise (steps!) and as this the Fitbit is an encourager. 10,000 steps a day is my goal. If I am at 8somethingsomething in the afternoon I certainly make more of an effort. Don't laugh, I have even jogged next to my bed in place before crawling into it. Everything helps. When the day is done, it's done. You can't do anything about it in writing. On to the next day and trying harder. Works for me. Good luck. Or you could just jot down the number before turning the light off on a piece of paper.
