Another day home sick, another day of no working out. Blech.
I’m not gonna lie, I’m kind of glad for the excuse to take time away from work. It’s killed my exercise, though. I’m sure my weight is not dropping from the very strenuous physical demands of shuffling between the couch-tea kettle-bathroom triangle, and even though I’ve been staying on track with eating (in spite of a highly irregular hunger pattern), I’m pissed to be missing YET ANOTHER week of fixing myself.
Luckily, the universe is still looking out for me. While digging around in my Fuck-It Bucket™ for a candle lighter, I came across the second wrist band that came with my VivoFit: the small band. Oddly, I was searching for this over the summer when the weight was rapidly dropping off, and I couldn’t find it. I swear I looked in my Bucket, as that’s where I always put things that have no logical categorical storage place, and it definitely wasn’t there. It just wasn’t time for me to find it.
When I picked up the small band, I felt my eyes go wide like a Disney character. Earlier the same day, I had been poking around on Amazon to see if there was a sale on VivoFit yet to get one for my mom, who is interested in getting one for herself. I was reading the specs and noticed that the difference in the small end of notches in the large band and the large end of notches in the small band have some overlap. Since I’m down to where I can wear the large band around my wrist on the last set of notches available, the I-wonder voice spoke up: I wonder if you can wear this band now?
Sho ’nuff can.
I’m wearing my small band on notches 2 and 3, and my (crusty-ass!) large band at the same notches, but I slid it to the point where it naturally fits on my arm now. I started out wearing the large band only one notch farther over, on 3 and 4, on my WRIST, just 11 months ago. Within the next 11 months, I’ll probably be able to get that sucker around my ankle.
Viva the Vivo!
