M2MS–Week 15

20140309-201415.jpg

Can I just say that I am exhausted after an extremely busy weekend cleaning out my grandma’s house in preparation for her moving.  Not only did I help, but also began prepping for a huge garage sale we will be holding this coming weekend.  The constant moving of stuff definitely helped up my steps this week!  I have once again upped my daily average back to 9k steps per day! Yay!

I also just realized that this was my best week ever!  In fact, I beat my previous weekly high by over 10,000 steps!  Needless to say week 15 was a fantastic one!  I’m excited to move on to week 16!

How does this work?  Everyday I am posting a new pic to Instagram, Twitter and my personal Facebook page with the hash tags #365DaysofCori and the official challenge hash tag #catchthemoment365.  On Friday’s I will do a recap of the previous week’s photos and *hopefully* give a little more insight into the photos, why I took them and any history behind them.

Happy Friday!

M2MS–Week 14

20140309-201415.jpg

Last week I mentioned that I broke down and purchased a new battery for my Fitbit.  I’m cheap and wanted to use as much of the battery up as I could before putting the new one in.  However on Wednesday I waited to long and my battery died…even worse I lost steps

Yes, I had been warned and should have just inserted the new battery when I bought it but I didn’t.  As I left work on Wednesday afternoon I checked my Fitbit and I was at about 8,000 steps but it never would sync to my phone.  At that point I decided I needed to replace the battery, the time had come.  By the time I got home and got around to changing it, it had already died Sad smile Not only had it died, but I lost 4,000 steps.  Since I hadn’t synced it with my phone for several hours it didn’t register the last 4,000 steps I had done. 

Sigh. This week I get an asterisk by my Wednesday total.  Officially my Fitbit read 4,097 so that’s what I recorded for my daily total, but I know that I was at 8,000 steps….annoying.  Oh well, lesson learned.  I say that a lot don’t I?  One would think I’d learn!

Other than losing steps, week 14 wasn’t one of my best, but I’m still on track to hit my 1 millionth step soon!  Wahooo!

#CatchTheMoment365–Week 13

I’m the first person to admit that my thirteenth week of 2014 was pretty dull. I had three highlights, one being submitting a proposal to speak at a national conference in the fall, getting to spend sometime with the adorable Mason, and then when “my” first triplets turned fifteen.  Other than those couple of pictures,…

Fifteen years ago the world was introduced to “my first” triplets.  No, this is not an April Fools joke, 15 years ago, the Elkins girls were born weighing in with a *combined* weight of 9lbs, 7oz! Wow. Mind blown. To put it into perspective I started watching them when I was 13 / 14 (there’s…

M2MS–Week 13

Today I had to break down and purchase a new battery for my FitBit.  The website claims it should last 6 months, but apparently I check mine to frequently because after about 3 months my battery is about dead.  Part of me wants to see how long the battery can go on “low” before dying,…

#CatchTheMoment365 – Week 12

I for one am totally excited for warm flip-flop wearing weather!  Sadly for me, Seattle won’t really see consistent…
