Saturday, October 6, 2007


Today was a morning spent with some friends at their yard sale as they tried to get rid of stuff. I actually ended up leaving about 10:00ish and did a couple of errands and then was home by 12:30. I then took a nap, graded some papers, played on the computer and then graded the rest of the papers. I even had a chance to create a card but I can't show it yet because it's for a swap and I can't show it until the saps have been swapped out.

As for the challenge- well, I broke my pedometer again. Has anyone found a pedometer that stays on the pants. Everytime I go to the bathroom (which if I'm drinking my water is a lot) it falls off. It finally completely broke yesterday so I'm on a hun again for another one. This is why I don't want to spend a lot on a pedometer because it's just going to break. I didn't start out my day great but well, it's Saturday.

I did have 2 sausage, egg, and cheese mcmuffins
pb sandwich, bowl of cereal, 1 serving of parmesan basil wheat thins

I also had only 2 bottles of water. I just have a hard time on the weekends drinking my water.

On a good note this past week was my first observation (due to switching grades) and it actually went well- much better than I hoped. It's one of those things that I expect perfection and I sometimes forget that they are first graders and they are only 6. I'm going to get back on track with this because it's the accountability issue for me I will say that I have yet to get any emails for the walking challenge and I have signed up three or four times.

Hope you all have had a great Saturday!

I have an Omron which has an alligator clip that also attaches to the waistband of your pants so when it pops off it doesn't land on the floor or the toilet. I've had it now since March! Much better than the one that landed in the toilet. LOL

I bought one from WW and it also has an additional clip that you can attach to your waistband. I have now taken that off since the pedometer itself is quite sturdy and will not easily fall off. You can just walk into a WW meeting and purchase the pedometer, I do not think you have to be a member to be able to do that. It was expensive, $20 but has a one year warranty if I remember correctly. Just a thought... hang in there girl, you are doing well and as I said you can get the walking challenge on the i-village website if you are not receiving the mails, maybe your server is blocking the mails thinking its spam?

I have the same problem with my pedometer. I now remember to remove it before I use the bathroom. I must move around a lot because sometimes my hand would accidently flip it off my pants, or I'd bump into something and it falls off.

A few days ago, I had gone to the mall and I bent over and it fell off my pants so I must have put it in my purse but had forgotten about it. For the last few days, I could not figure out where I had put it so I haven't been wearing my pedometer. I finally found it today!
