I forgot to log on to MyFitness Pal yesterday.
For 495 days in a row, I’ve managed to login to track my food intake, and yesterday I didn’t get to it.
I’m bummed, way more than I should be for such a nothingness accomplishment. But I think that says more about being tired than anything else.
While my health and fitness haven’t taken a backseat during the election campaign stuff, my routine certainly has. I’ve had to watch my energy levels, so I’ve only been at the gym once a week, to swim, for 3 weeks now. I just can’t risk further exhausting myself.
Nine days left!

I wrote about Malala Yousafzai last year at this time. Today I woke up to find out she, along with Kailash Satyarthi of India have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
That makes me very happy.
That is all

I’ve been walking all week, 57.7 KM the last time I added it up.
The “UP” band has been a lot of fun. Tracking the steps.
Yesterday I wanted to bow it UP, and I did! My daily goal is 10 000 steps. When I got home from wandering yesterday I was at 19 456, so I insisted we walk in the rain, to dinner!

The Word We Need To Stop Using To Describe The Act Of Eating
If we’re ever going to undo our culture’s moral fixation on eating, we need to address not only the direct offenses we face in our personal lives, but also the subtle ways the media conditions the public.

Day one of vacation and blew the lid off the UP band walking, 12 600+ steps in a single day.
By the end of the week, I’ll have set such a standard for walking, it’s going to spend the next 6 months reminding me of this week, and how I should get out there and walk.
Time to get up and get walking!
One of my favourite photos so far…the bird is real!
