    Your stepping has been insane lately, so feel proud! You are doing so much more than your goal, it is super impressive.

    Thank you @pupowl...and it's been super busy at work too, so trust me, I'm ready for a nice quiet weekend with nothing but walking to do...I've sure been sleeping well at night...so walking helps with that too!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Good morning Shape Shifters. Yesterday the weather was a little boring, but the forest was super pretty. We had a lot of rain and fairly warm weather, so everything is green. I didn't keep my socks dry but it was fine. I enjoyed myself, except for the mosquitoes. I will get some bug spray next week. Happy Saturday everyone <3

    @Pupowl -- I'm learning to oil paint, would you mind if I painted from your photos? So far I haven't painted anything I'm too happy with, but you never know, maybe success is around the corner.

    Hey, how is everyone counting their steps? Is it a fitbit thing? It looks interesting and I'm wondering how many steps I get in. It might be sad. I might have to hop into the steps challenge next go.

    Tomorrow I've signed up for a Mother's Day 10k at the local beach. I'm a little nervous..!

    @jessicakrall8 - Thank you for the celebratory post!

    @Itadakimasu7 - I appreciate the approach you're taking to get yourself back to running

    I faltered a bit yesterday (Friday). I was planning on meeting friends for a bonfire; the rain sent us to meet at a neighborhood bar. I had one drink and a water. They ordered appetizers for the table. While I limited myself, I am unsure of the macros I consumed. I did not meet my step goal for Friday - I ended up taking a nap which I needed. My sleep hygiene struggled past few days.

    Today, Saturday - I'll make a step goal for 14,500.

    Of course not, go for it! Would love to see the result. Painting is hard. I used to try water colors, then did a bit of acrylics, but haven't done anything in years now. It's tough with a cat as well.
    I have a fitbit, though you can also use your phone. I am sure there are also cheap watches that just track steps if that is what you are after and they are likely more accurate than using an app on your phone.
