Changing Blog Platforms Again

When I first started blogging I believe I started with WordPress. Then I switched to Blogger. Then I switched back to WordPress because I was frustrated with Jerry Brown’s decision about Amazon Associates and California (long story). That decision has been reversed for quite a while now, so I’m changing back to Blogger. There’s no real way to monetize a WordPress blog unless I buy the domain and buy a hosting platform thing. Blogger just makes it easy. I still have about $3.00 in my Google Adsense account from before. Over time, that will raise.

So back I go to Blogger. If you’re subscribed to my blog, hopefully it won’t be too much of a hassle.

You can find my blog at http://keepmovingtee.blogspot.com/ from now on. Still tweaking it a bit.

Mileage Monday And Unofficial SparkPeople Turkey Track (100,000 Step Challenge – FitBit)

So, about a month or so after I got my FitBit Flex, SparkPeople came out with their own fitness tracker. It’s not as high-tech as the FitBit, but it’s great for beginners I think. SparkPeople set up a “Turkey Track” challenge for November, where members challenged themselves to walking 100,000 steps for the month of November.

When I got my FitBit, I joined the SparkPeople team “FitBit Users Unite”, and the leaders on that team decided to hold their own challenge. I jumped on board, and racked up a total of 179,885 steps for the month of November. Since I easily went past the 100,000 step mark in mid November I earned the neat little picture you see above. Near the end of November I slowed down with my workouts for various reasons.

That team is holding another challenge for the month of December, so I’m going to be taking part in that one also. I chose a goal of 200,000 steps for the month of December. I should be able to accomplish that, I just need to get back into my exercise routine, and not let things overtake me.

For the last few days the virtual walk site has been yelling at me because I haven’t entered any mileage in for over a week. Tomorrow, I’ll be back at it. I only have two pictures from the site this time around, and those are from over a week ago.

Mile 709.4 (elliptical for 1 mile)                             Mile 710.4 (elliptical for 1 mile)

Keep moving. I need a good kick in the rear!
