Slow and steady

IMG_5122Another inch knit this week.   Slow and steady, they will get done.     Another slow and steady has been the elliptical machine.   Just 5 minutes a day, but every day.  In October, I’m planning to increase the time, when other activities calm down.   So I push myself for those 5 minutes and 10,000 steps daily thinking I must keep moving or get old.

The all day class I attended today was loaded with information on working with the simulator and setting up the information to send to the quilting machine computer.  There is so much to learn and practicing what I learned will help me to really learn it.   However since it was a computer type course (in a very cold room), there was nothing of which to take photos.

    Good for you! I have to be moving all day long to get in 10000 steps and the elliptical doesn’t always count my steps have a great weekend

      Thank you – our elliptical has arms that go with the feet, which then the fitbit counts. I try to get half my steps done in the morning, which means at least 1/2 hour walk plus the normal steps. Afternoons, sometimes I walk and sometimes, I do strange things like make extra trips down the hall instead of being so efficient. Do you use a fitbit?

    I had a talk with myself today about getting on the elliptical. You are right….I don’t have to start with 30 minutes! Your socks are going to be beauties.

      Thanks. I chose 5 minutes because any higher number would set me up for failure right now. Join me so I won’t be alone.

    Your socks are looking good. I like the color you chose. I’m a fitbit user too. My first goal last year was 7,000 steps a day, which I was successful at most days. This year is a different story. I just can’t seem to get back in the routine of it. Send me an invite to be your friend and I’ll add you as a friend to encourage each other to hit our goals. I really need to get back to walking more.

      Thank you. This is my third year of using the fitbit. I started with 4000 steps which at the time was a real push for me. Now I’m fine with 10000, just have to get half done before noon. My biggest complaint is it takes time that I’d rather be doing something else, but then I tell myself, it is move or rust. Sometimes I don’t quite make it one day, but make up for it during the week so that my week is always at least 7000. Let me know if you received the invite. I wasn’t positive that I was doing it correctly.
