WIAW #33: If You’re Going To Walk The Walk… Up Your Fitbit Goal

Hello! Good morning!

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while now, you know that I love my fitbit. If nothing else, it’s an effective reminder to get up and move around throughout the day. Fitbit recommends a goal of 10,000 steps a day, which I think is a little optimistic, so I changed mine to 8,000.

Now that I’m functioning without a car, though, I might need to up my goal.

Anyway, I needed to run to the Post Office yesterday morning, which meant that I literally needed to run (or walk) there. I can’t complain; it was beautiful walk.


Oh hey, Starbucks. What’s new?

Did you hear that Starbucks offers coconut milk now? I was curious, so I ordered a flat white with coconut milk. And I was impressed. I liked the taste and I’m not a fan of coconut at all. If you’re looking for a coconut-y taste, you might actually be disappointed.

I walked home before removing the lid, so I couldn’t tell you how much foam there was, but the coconut milk didn’t coagulate or get weird like almond milk can sometimes do. I Approve!


Andrew and I have been buying a new bag of cuties just about every week, lately. I snacked on a couple mid-morning.

Walk with me…

Andrew and I coordinate a walk with each other most afternoons (he is at work, I am at home, a phone call takes place), and this week we have an extra walking buddy.

She’s super cute, and totally spunky. She gets distracted easily, but we all do.


After our walk, I assembled a chicken salad wrap with avocado and caesar dressing. It was awesome. I will probably be having one again today.

I spent the rest of the afternoon doing laundry, studying, catching up on The Bachelor, and snacking on peanut m&ms. Those little multicolored candies are addicting!

And there’s nothing “fun” about the fun size packets. Andrew got home from work to find me mid-sugar crash. Gym plans were cancelled. It’s fine.



Dinner was on the same page as lunch… Chicken quesadillas with a side salad of mixed greens, pear, sunflower seeds, and balsamic vinaigrette.



Parks & Rec, you will be missed.

After dinner, Andrew caught up on Walking Dead, and then we watched the series finale of Parks & Rec. I was so sad to say goodbye to that show. As Andrew pointed out, it’s the only comedy from the Office30 RockParks & RecCommunity block that brought me to tears from laughing so hard. It was the scene where Leslie and her team are trying to walk across the ice at the skating rink to reach the podium, but have to take tiny steps and it’s taking forever and the “get on your feet!” music keeps starting over. It’s hilarious.



It just makes me start thinking of other insanely funny moments on that show. I’m going to be laughing all day. Have a great rest of your Wednesday!
