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.


  1. Congrats on your good health and all those steps! Sorry about the job... I'm sure things will work out for you.

  2. Ugh. Sorry you were "restructured" out of your job. That really sucks!

  3. Glad you are feeling healthy and things are so positive in that regard. I'm sorry to hear about your job, that is no fun. I hope you get something you like better or is an easier commute for you and it works out for the best in the long run,

  4. Loving all the good, hopefully the bad will change to good, and sorry about the ugly.

  5. Enz, we all through the good, the bad and the ugly. Hope you find a new job soon.

  6. great work on the fitness but sorry to hear about the job
