One of my bad (or good, depends on how you see it) points is that I can be really, really competitive. Not just with others, but with myself. I know, it sounds strange but it’s really a case of me applying my legendary stubbornness to something and making 100% sure that I succeed. Even if nobody cares, because I care.
(That’s how I could go through seven IUIs and still bulldoze my way forward. Crazy.)
Anyway, Mr Thick snapped up two Fitbit Flex for us recently and almost immediately, I have found myself doing my best to match up to the goals that I had set. For instance, my target is to hit 8,000 steps a day. But but but…it is term break now and I am hardly on my feet these days.
This was why husband found his wife pacing round and round the living room last night, muttering to herself. He was all, what are you doing? and I was like, I need to hit 8,000 steps.
So the school has what we call FIT Day on Wednesdays, where we can take off at 5pm to exercise either on campus or around the nearby reservoir. I took a leisurely walk this evening at 5pm – the weather was nice and cool – and lo and behold! 8,000 steps! And more!
Let’s see how long this obsession of mine lasts.
Oh, we have been extremely geeky these days. My tech-loving husband recently presented me with the Pebble watch. One of my favourite watchfacees is the hobbit one and I have to say, I really like living on hobbit time. After breakfast is second breakfast, and then there’s lunch, and right after lunch is a nap. BEST THING EVAR.
And yes, as Mr Thick said, my wrist is all Bluetooth-ed out. It IS very nice to have married a geek. Who cares about diamonds when I can have a Pebble?

Seriously geeking out. I’m gushing over both right now!!!!
(Don’t you wish we can actually act on NAP?!)
WANT!! But errrr, does crawling around after a baby count as steps?? I am like growing mold in the lower rungs of vertical space now…
Ruth – I WISH! Naps after lunch, uninterrupted, is like a dream come true!
The Pleasure Monger – HAHAHA yes it counts!
I feel you. .. I feel as of you just wrote how I am feeling at this very moment. My first kid was a poor sleeper and now second time in, I have drawn the same cards in the sleep department….this seven weeks old bub sleeps only in my arms! Thanks for such honest writing…
