#Jenniversary: Finish Line!

I meant to update this more often, but well, life happened. Week 2 was…a week and then it was my birthday, followed by a holiday and all of the sudden, it’s the end of the month. Oops!

But I’m happy to report that I finished all 360,000 steps! As you can see, I missed my daily goal of 12K only 4 times and only did less than 10K steps once (flying all day). Even though I didn’t really lose any weight (see above for how this month has gone – LOL), it was fun to challenge myself to go further than I had before. That said, I’m excited to go back to 10K steps tomorrow!

I also managed to post on Instagram every day this month. Some days were harder to post on than others, and I definitely spent more time crafting photos than usual. But it really made me live in the moment and look at what I consider a normally mundane life as something worthy of documenting. Below are my most liked photos from the last month.

Birthday weekend is getting off to a great start! 🍩💯 #jenniversary2016

Birthday Month Challenge

It’s officially November and I’ve got about three weeks until my birthday. Every year, I like to set a challenge for myself or make some resolutions for the coming year. Last year’s 35-for-35 challenge did NOT go well, mostly because I tried to do too much for too long a period of time. So this year, I’m going to simplify things, while still challenging myself!

1. 360,000 steps in November
In honor of this year’s birthday, I’m upping my steps for this month. It works out to about 12K steps a day, which will definitely be challenging with the time change this weekend and less overall daylight. Some days may be more and some days less (though hopefully at least 10K a day), but that’s the overall goal. I hope I won’t have to do all the steps as laps around my tiny apartment, but I’m up for it, if need be.

2. Instagram every day
As you may have guessed, I’m obsessed with Instagram. My goal this month is to post a new photo every day. Most of my posts are sunsets and food these days and I’m hoping this will challenge me to be more creative, while still documenting my day. Follow #jenniversary2016 or watch my Instagram for my progress.

Here’s to a successful November!

Perfect Week for a Not-So-Perfect Lady

screen-shot-2016-10-01-at-9-06-53-pmThis is my first perfect FitBit week since the beginning of June. Coincidentally, my weight has increasing during that same amount of time. Did I lose weight this week? Of course not! No matter how much you walk, it can’t combat the amount of shit food that I eat on a pretty regular basis.

But thanks to San Francisco summer and a little perseverance (ask me about the evening I walked 4500 steps in my tiny apartment!), I was able to be all green, all week!

Tomorrow starts a new week and I hope I can keep it up while the light holds.

 

Weekend Wrapup

img_7412I didn’t get everything done this weekend that I wanted to, but I do feel more rested than I normally do on a Sunday night (even though it’s Monday night). So I’m counting the weekend as a win!

Saturday, I slept for 14 hours! I guess you could I was a bit tired after the week! I did an abbreviated version of my coast walk in order to have time to run errands before things closed. I only succeed in getting the oil changed in the car and running out to the outlet mall just before it closed. Continue reading

Ready for a Long Weekend

Today was one of those days at work, where my plan for the day went out the window about an hour into it. I did actually get everything done that I wanted to do, but I was there for an extra hour and half. Except for a quick trip to Starbucks (gotta have a frappuccino on a day like this!), I was at my desk, not moving. Inputting 500+ email addresses into our latest invite took much longer than I thought, and everything was sore by the time I was done. I really just wanted to hop on the bus back to my car and call it day.
