Taco Pizza


Fitbits are equal parts motivating and gut-wrenching.


I got one for Christmas in an attempt to be mindful of my activity (or lack thereof).


Turns out my daily yoga session is only like 8 steps.


What’s a girl gotta do to get her 10,000 steps?! I don’t run and it rains here. I’m meant to be indoors. I’ve really been trying to think outside of the box, though. Cleaning is actually a nice way to get some steps. My baseboards are shined up like pennies! I’ve also been practicing old dance moves. Turns out I’m still pretty terrible. I am, however, quite good at reading. Instead of cozying up with a good read, I just walk and read. All around the house. Garrett is moderately upset with this new hobby because, apparently, it’s distracting when I walk in front of him during his evening TV time.


I think “Destined to be Sedentary” will be a chapter in my memoir.
