As I stated previously, I have a Fitbit. Back then I was worried about how lazy it made me feel. It mocked me by showing how little I walked. I got much better after that. I was close to averaging my 10,000 steps a day. Most weeks hitting it. A few, I even surpassed it by a great deal. A couple of weeks ago I went to Vegas. I had an ungodly amount of steps racked up. Then I tripped up a stair and twisted my knee. The last 2 weeks I haven’t been able to walk daily as I normally do. I even take the elevator for the one floor I have to go up and down every day. Now I am averaging less than 4k steps a day. I was taunted. And my stats are all in red. I was never big on exercise but now … I feel guilty all because of a little piece of technology I wear on my wrist.


Alaska … I Mean Vegas … Day 3

IT IS COLD TODAY! I am in the middle of the dessert and it is 41 degrees. They forecast snow. I don’t care, I am not working! It was another walking adventure this morning. Let’s just say my extraordinary sense of direction did it to me again and I ended up walking a mile and a half further than I probably had to today. Other than that, it has been a resting day. We made it to Paris last night but the Eiffel Tower ride was closed because of the weather (rain). Tonight we are going to attempt to hit downtown with a few of Jackie’s work friends. Gotta figure out the best way to get there for the cheapest and we will be good. Apparently they also shut the monorail down when it is bad weather. I think I am safe and won’t move here. Can’t live somewhere that can’t handle a little rain.

Short one today but that is all I got right now. Tomorrow should be a good one based on tonight and how many more cowboys I see. The rodeo came into town … literally. Hundreds of hats, boots and surprisingly not so attractive women. More later.
