Lots of "sleep"
I'm still getting used to the tracking sleep aspect of my new fitbit. The old fitbit zip didn't do that. Today I forgot to turn off the sleep mode. I woke up at 6:30, but didn't get it turned off until almost 12:30. Guess I got a lot of very restless sleep. LOL I know it will say I had periods of being awake, but since I was also knitting, I had period of not moving where it thought I was asleep. :-) Today I am doing short bursts of exercise. I have the house to myself and I really want to finish a couple of projects - like the vest I have been working on. I also don't want to spend too much time sitting. I read about a woman who ran a marathon while knitting but I can't even stand and crochet, so exercising while creating probably won't work for me. My solution has been to do a row/round/motif and then spend 1-5 min on the elliptical or bike. Not a lot, but it does keep the blood pumping. Later tonight I will dedicate an hour to just exercise. The little bursts are just to keep me from feeling sluggish. I find it much harder to do the one hour when I've been sitting on my bottom all day.
