Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Loving my Striiv

Pretty hot and sticky out there even early this morning.  The temperature was 73 degrees.  It was cloudy so without the sun it kept it a little bit better than it could have been.
The sun was a hazy glow through the clouds.
A walk around the lake again for me.  Nice looking at the lake.  At least it looked nice and cool.  Lots of people again getting out before the heat of the day.

I saw a few rabbits and one squirrel startled me as I walked by him jumping out of a trash can with a half eaten apple.

I found a lucky penny.
I walked my 6 miles this morning and with this pedometer that was 13,267 so I'll aim for at least 13000 steps on my walk.
Thanks Beth from Canada for telling me about the strides.  : ) 

I love my new Striiv pedometer.
I ended up walking 17,193 by the end of the day yesterday.
At home today doing a bit of cleaning. 
I also have been spending a bit TOO MUCH time playing with my Stiiv.  There is a little game MyLand on it that I've been playing.  You get to build up an island putting buildings, flowers and animals on it.  You collect energy from the steps you take and buy coins and then can add things to the island. 
This little thing is so much more than just a pedometer.  I'm so glad that I got it!!

Well, I'd better get off this computer and do some work.
A happy day to you.
Above all, do not lose your desire to walk:
every day I walk myself into a state of well-being
and walk away from every illness;
I have walked myself into my best thoughts,
and I know of no thought so burdensome
that one can not walk away from it.
~ Soren Kierkegaard


  1. I really enjoy reading about your daily walks.

    It was 82 degrees when I got up this morning at 6.

  2. I'm glad you are having fun with your new pedometer. You are correct, of course. Life is all about balance and moderation.:-) We have to get up early to get ahead of the heat we are currently having. Take care of yourself on those outdoor excursions.

  3. Lovely quote...

    We are doing ours, later in the day... now.

  4. What an amazing quote! That could be your signature quote for sure!

  5. I bought a pedometer a few years back but couldn't work out how to set it! Yours sounds extra complicated!

  6. Your Stiiv game is a lot like the Wii Walk It Out workout game that I play.You walk and build up steps to build your island.It's a lot of fun and a great way to workout and get your steps in every day.I have been doing walking outside but when it is cooler I like to work out to Wii Walk It Out.

  7. I haven't used a pedometer since finishing the 3 day Komen walk last September, and I kind of miss checking it out. Your new one sounds really nice.
