Mercury falling — Actifit: January 15 2020

in actifit •  5 months ago  (edited)

Every day I try to hit my 10,000 steps. It can be a challenge on the coldest days of winter, so I also get to the gym sometimes and do calisthenics, etc.

Today was one of those days. I looked out my office windows several times during the day thinking: look at that fresh cool day! I need to get out there. Fresh air may actually be addictive! (There are worse addictions, right?)

But seriously, I just have to get outside. If the end of the day comes and I leave the office in the dark I feel Eeyore sad.

The first time I looked out it was snowing really hard. But the snow stopped and the sun came out and the fresh air was beckoning. And I knew the light was fading! So I threw my coat on and dashed down the six flights of stairs to the outside to head to the trail for a brisk walk. Boy was I surprised!

I had not been paying attention to the weather report and I expected the temperature to be around freezing, which is quite comfortable with my winter coat and gloves. But it was SO much colder! The temperature had been dropping steadily since the snow stopped and was losing a few degrees every hour!

So, while it was beautiful out, it was blistering cold. A razor sharp icy breeze hit me as I walked out. I headed out to the trail and got a few pictures, but then I was driven back by that lacerating chill!


I loved the colors of the setting sun and the pond all covered in snow. It is a very small pond, so I just made a loop around and then went back to the office! Whew! It was so good to get warm!

The color of the sky is beautiful. Walking 10000 steps is something I seldom achieve and even if I did achieve it, my app won't be capturing it. I should really sit down and read through some of the guide on how to set my actifit app properly and then follow the instructions.

I love the actifit app. It motivates me to move! I wear a Fitbit, which I highly recommend. They sync up nicely so you don’t have to carry your phone to track your steps. Thanks for visiting, @elizacheng!

Ohh yes fresh air can be very addicting well it is for me,

thanks for joining Wednesday walk :)

Today it is -10 degrees Fahrenheit in Minnesota. So I’m going to have to make another very quick sprint outside for a gulp of fresh air today! Have a great day, @tattoodjay!

Och that is so cold, wrap up and keep warm

For sure lol!

I think I would die in those temperatures haha... even if you lent me your jacket!!!

It’s all about the layering, as they say. And for anyone who has to work outside they need a whole technological approach to dressing for the weather! All I can say is that it really makes me appreciate the warm months! Thanks for visiting, @jaynie!

I'm a fan of that cold sharp weather. I think it lovely once your moving to feel that bite outside.
