Spring Sprung and now I'm back to it

So, 

A lot of my posts seem to start with "ugh its been so long". Yet, I am not ashamed. As long as I keep coming back to this. Keep getting back on track, wandering isn't the problem, it's the not coming back. So, I'm back. I've noticed the Withings App has become more content rich. I am fully in their camp now. Their new pedometer feature is awesome. The following is the last two weeks of my activity. I am pleased with my progress from week to week and plan to just keep getting better. I hope you do enjoy some of my musings, some of my struggles, and some of my nonsensical mad-caps. 

 

Big changes so far: using the tools in my iPhone 5 to record what I eat (myfitnesspal) and to track my weight, resting heart rate and my activity (Withings Scale, and the Withings Companion App)

 

Things I could do better: I have to get my 10,000 steps in every day. I feel that its not that hard of a task, Its only 5 miles, which is roughly a 1.5 hour walk. I plan to make this a usefully activity, aside from just "working out". I live roughy 1 mile from work. 1.5 miles from a Walgreens, Home Depot, and a subway. I live 2.5 miles from the Gym I have a membership too. so as long as I set a goal like "walk to work" or "walk to home depot" Not only am I saving on gasoline (a very mustachian concept) but I am also getting my steps in. All of this will likely become its own post.

Here are my last two weeks activity:

Thanks again for reading my silly blog about my desire to turn my life around. I appreciate any comments or suggestions on things I can do better.
