More on that progress thing…

I love TimeHop! It’s so fun to see what I was up to on this day however many years ago. It’s a fun way to watch my kids grow. Well, today there was a screenshot from my watch on my TimeHop:

For a second or two, I couldn’t figure out why I would have taken this screenshot. What was significant about it? But then the entire day came flooding back to me. See, my family was in D.C. on this day. We’d spent the entire day walking to different monunments, museums, and landmarks. And I.was.tired. I took a screenshot because this was the most active calories I had ever burned in a day. To be fair, this was a bit early in the day and I actually went much further, but the point was, it was very significant to me when I saw it. So much so that I felt the need to screenshot it. So for comparrison, it is probably about the same point in the day right now and my family is NOT in Washington, D.C.. In fact, we’re doing nothing particularly special today. But, I’ve corrected the screenshot to match right now:

Basically, 4 hears ago, 400+ calories was a very good day. And now? 1,150 calories is a minimum. I don’t want to leave the gym until I’ve burned 1000+ calories.

This is me on that very day, four years ago, and then me now, about 4 minutes ago:

It’s really nice to see some non-scale victories!
