    Just a little longer, and we will have the urge to better our lives again - at least until January 12th :)

    Got any plans for 2018, or considering to approach stuff in your life differently?
    Oh boy :) i got a list .. started it this Summer already, and it's scary that it's almost time.

    My aim is to walk 1000 miles this year, averaging out at just under 3 miles a day. So far hitting 3 miles hasn't always happened but then other days I've gone above it, so I'm still on track.

    I think this is seriously impressive myself... when I get the Fitbit I'll find out I do 500 steps a day let alone 3 miles a day lol.

    I couldn't do it without the Fitbit, I know know that it takes 12 steps to walk around the kitchen table and I can do 9 and half laps while waiting for the microwave to do my porridge! It is little things like that, that add the steps up.

    I wish I had this dedication. I know I do not. A mile a day is currently a realistic tough goal - I am not like other people, but I like this motivation. Who knows.. maybe I can make some changes and aim for a walk a day, regardless of distance.

    You know your phone has a Health app and already tracks your steps, right :)

    However it only tracks when you have the phone on you, which is why my phone has a number that's 2000 less than my Fitbit does!

    The Fitbit wants you to walk 250 steps each hour and can alert you if you haven't done it. So if you set it up to alert you between 9-3 Mon-Fri that's still a minimum of 1500 steps each day.

    I've added my running total of miles to my sig so you can bug me if my motivation goes for it!

    Should hit the 100 mile mark this week! I love that you get little badges on the Fitbit too, yesterday I got a Lighthouse one for 50 floors in a day, no idea how the count floors but I'm happy with it!

    So cool to hear :) I've been walking more, but it's going slow. Backpains and stuff are in the way. Headaches during daytime don't help either. I wish I could do more. But hopefully the more walking and picking better times result in helping strengthening my back and stuff. I still use my phone for everything, works fine.

    This year I want to have a big sort out too, get rid of a huge amount of never that I don't need and don't use, it's just taking up space. It's the starting to do it though!

    I've made a list in my todo app on my phone. and each time i am idle in a room and spot something i really dont care for, i add it to the list. At a later stage i can decide which of those items i really want to keep and throw out.. (or sell, etc)
