Friends and Kitties!
The following photo is:
a) not K-Rated (safe for Young Kittens), and
b) brought to you by the World's Most Evil holiday gift--a FitBit.
Hubby purchased both of us FitBit trackers a couple of weeks before Christmas and since neither of us are into delayed gratification we put 'em on right away...and life as we know it has changed.
Who woulda thunk that this little gadget would transform us into competitive raging stepping monsters? Ten times a day (at least) we tot up our stats; heart rate, steps, active time, even who SLEPT better! It make our Scrabble games look tame by comparison*. We want our numbers to go from orange to green and get those little smiley faces on the phone app as soon as we hit our goals...apparently we are both quite easily motivated by imaginary electronic things.
It's insane, but in a good way.
Because the amount of laziness in our lives has had the damning light of true sloth shined upon it: we were couch spuds--yes, even ME-- and we have started to change that. Hence this photo, taken while we were out accumulating steps towards our daily totals--a.k.a. a walk on the bike path. No longer do I sit in a boneless slump at work for hours on end, my little alarm goes off and I'm up and about, churning out some more mileage (I know all the long ways around both plants now) even if I'm only marching around the room in circles. Scott is wearing a path in the grass up through the park and back, and he detests walking as a form of exercise. But he's doing it. Amazing.
Anyhoo, I've wanted a picture of myself being all defiant with this sign for some time now.
I wonder, can I get a smiley face on my FitBit app for fulfilled photo ops?
