The lovely Runs to Get Waisted warned me about this. She told me I would end up arguing with my Jawbone. And she was right! Our wonderful group, Lovely Ladies Losing It, has different monthly goals. This month we are all working on getting in 10,000 steps a day. What a great goal, right?

The good news is, I think about this while I am walking, what would I be doing instead of that? I would be sitting on the couch, possibly snacking. So I am thankful for you, Jawbone. You're a butthead. But I like you.
