You notice how I said “before you wake up for the day” as opposed to “before you get up in the morning?” There’s a reason for that. When you get up in the morning you’re up. When you wake up for the day, there’s no more going back to that warm cozy bed. Does that make any sense to you? This explains it all.
The secret to getting those steps on your FitBit toward the plus side of your daily goal count is to spend the night in a hotel with your husband, wife, partner, or significant other. Children and teenagers can factor into this equation also, if you understand where I’m going with this.
I wasn’t awake for the day even though I had been promised I could sleep in while H went to the last clinc at SEUS this morning.
Up I jumped to find H the nail clippers he requested while shaving. Back to bed.
Up again to find the aloe lotion he could not find sitting right in front or his nose. Back to bed.
Up once more to dig the room key and breakfast pass out of my purse so H could go down for breakfast. Back to bed.
My eyes were just about to close when there was a tapping at my door. Up again to open the door for H because his hands were full with breakfast and juice for me to have breakfast in bed. So there was no choice. Back to bed.
So along with those 539 steps I also got breakfast in bed. Not a wink of sleep – but I guess the trade-off was worth it.
The rest of the day I’ll add steps towards my goal as I traipse back and forth from one honor band rehearsal to the next and to more clinics as H listens and I read.
What I’d really like to do is sit in Crosby Theatre and watch the Cardinal Honor band rehearse where Andrew is working with the percussion and read my book.
Now I’m up for the day. Men!
