I've really slacked off on the Fitbit. I would like to say that it's because our weather has gone to crap so I haven't gone out walking after work, but there has been days it's been decent and I just couldn't get up and go. I even went and bought some new walking (running) shoes so my feet wouldn't hurt so much afterwards and I think I've only walked once, maybe twice since and I've had them a few weeks now.
I still get between 6k and 9k on work days so it's not like I'm not moving at all but the weekends tend to be really bad. I know there was a Sunday in there where I barely broke 500 steps. Today will probably be like that as well. It is right now almost 3 in the afternoon and I'm half way to 500. I did work yesterday, plus did some minor running around last night so I had a decent day to help my weekend battle with my mom. I kill her on weekdays because she's retired and can't keep up with my work steps, but she usually kills me on the weekends because I'm fat and lazy. I haven't won a weekend yet but it looks like I might have a shot this weekend, I'm currently up over 5k steps. I'd go walking but you know, it's raining, again. It's also under 40 degrees, so there's that too.
I might have set a record for longest amount of sleep last night though, I haven't checked yet but 10 hours and 40 minutes sounds like a high to me. I worked yesterday and on Saturdays, we go in at 5 so I got up at 4:30. I managed a hour and a half nap when I got home so I ended up staying up till midnight but I ended up sleeping until almost 11 this morning. I needed the sleep, I bet I've averaged under 5 hours a day all week. The wife is out of town this weekend so that's probably another reason I slept so much, the cat doesn't wake me up like she does my wife early in the morning. I woke up once this morning and that's because she laid down on top of me. When I woke up at 11, she was laying beside me. I gave her extra food last night (which I keep telling my wife to do) so she wouldn't wake me up this morning wanting to be fed.
Wife being gone has also explained why my TV viewing has pretty much been all sports. I've been catching up on games I had recorded on my DVR. 3 White Sox games and 3 Bulls games.
My son is at a friends house since yesterday and my daughter's friend who is living with us has been at her moms all weekend so it's just been my daughter and I. We went out for supper last night and grabbed some blizzards from DQ on the way home and I had promised her we'd watch the Gallows so I streamed it from VidAngel in HD for $2. Although if she would have told me it was all filmed with like a hand held camera, I might have opted for the standard def at $1 instead. Oh well.
I have to leave in about an hour to pick up the kids out running around and my wife will be home tomorrow so everything will be back to normal then. I'll probably still be a lazy ass as well so like I said, everything will be back to normal.
