September 2013–The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

The GoodOpen-mouthed smile

  • My step goal for September was 450,000 steps, I actually achieved 501,114 steps!
  • Since I started wearing my FitBit in mid-July I have achieved over 1 million steps.
  • No fibromyalgia flare ups since August 18.
  • Completed two 5k events (BIST 5k and Bang & Olufsen 5k) with great walking times. Recaps here.
  • 5lbs away from my pre-Lyrica weight gain and my lowest weight and my jeans fit again.
  • Fall is here, the colours, the cooler weather and my birthday season – I am happy.
  • I am blessed with wonderful friends and family.


The BadConfused smile

  • My much awaited mini vacation to North Carolina is on hold again!
  • I may not be able to make my third annual trip to Pennsylvania to visit my long time friends.


The Ugly Vampire bat

  • I was “restructured” out of my job and I am unemployed.
  • Being unemployed is merely bad, not ugly – the circumstances surrounding the “restructuring” are ugly. Everything isn’t settled yet so I can’t say any more than that.
