…and the power of confessing in public

One_Million_Years_BCLeanne Neanne and my wife over at dot2trot are big inspirations.  Yesterday, Dot posted her weekly weigh-in, and today I got my notification from Leanne that she’d also posted something. Lo and behold, she’s down 1.7 pounds this week. She also posted about her Fitbit gadget/thing, which allows her to keep track of all the running and jumping around she does.

Dot posted something similar the other day, and a guy at work has one and takes the stairs all the time and avoids the elevators. I get tired on elevators, but I’m a writer so it’s ok.

Back to the Fitbit: apparently you can compete with your friends about who’s struggling up the most flights of stairs and all that.  On the surface, this sounds crazy, right?  But humans are funny.  We love to win, we hate to lose, and this kept the dinosaurs from killing us a million years ago.

It’s a little like my Sunday word count thing: confession keeps me honest.  Mostly with myself. Net result? I get more done, and dinosaurs leave me alone.

What 100 Days At The Gym Can Do For You!

My wife found this today and put it up on her blog (dot2trot.com).  I thought it was pretty inspiring, and it’s something you can take with you anywhere in your life.
