Good Morning July 24, 2014

Today is my friend Crystal E’s Anniversary.  She is 2 days behind me so she is 12 today.  I met her at The Brown Bag a couple of years ago and I had her cleaning my house down town for a while – until I decided to sell it and take care of my cleaning myself.  I should have her come once in a while to give my place a “thorough” cleaning.  Anyway, we discovered we share the same number of years in the program.  She is also the Women’s Co-ordinator for the Jails at Corrections, so we share that also.  It’s amazing how we are all connected.  Plus I have a sweet APP called ODAAT where you can enter in your friends and their anniversaries and it sends you messages in the morning of who is celebrating an anniversary.  I love that APP.  It is a life saver!

Speaking of APPS, I found one called Argus that keeps track of your steps each day.  The first day I used it was 2 days ago and I only walked 30 steps.  Second day (yesterday) I walked 1840 steps, but I forgot to pick it up from my desk when I was walking around at work.  Also it allows you to keep track of how many cups of coffee you drink – you have to enter in the info, and how many glasses of water you drink.  I flavor my water with Crystal Lite Pink Lemonade and have always wondered if that counts as “water”.  Now that flavored waters are so popular, I don’t see why they wouldn’t count.  It’s only 5 calories, and I think those waters are more than that but I don’t really know.  Plus – it’s a lot cheaper and I’m all about “cheaper”.  Anyway, this APP is very useful and I’m still learning how it works.  It keeps track of the temperature each day too.  The goal is to get to 10K steps each day.  I can probably do that if I walk my mile in the morning and then go to the gym.  My goal is to go to the gym this afternoon.  We’ll see how the day goes.  At least if I don’t go to the gym, I can walk my mile after work at home.  I didn’t get up in time to walk this morning before work.  Wow – that is a lot of excuses isn’t it?

I’m trying something new today by adding this post to “tips & tricks” rather than “uncategorized” since I’ve mentioned the APPS I like.  I think it will show up on my phone differently, not sure how it will work on the computers.

This weekend is the Area Quarterly in Miami.  I’ve asked to ride over with Ralph and Heather.  I don’t like driving in Miami by myself, but I’ve had some success with my GPS in the past, but it will be nice to have company on the way over.  They are picking me up at 7AM on Saturday.  I’ve sent my Grapevine Report to the committee.

That’s it for today.  Got to get going.
