A Lovely Day for an Anniversary

Yep. Sixteen wonderful years I’ve been married to Marcia. To celebrate, she worked on a t-shirt quilt for a customer, while I … went to work. But this evening, on the way home …

Got my gal some roses

She seems to like them. She also got a sewing thing accessory as a pressie, while I’ve got a set of E. E. “Doc” Smith paperbacks headed my way. We’re so romantical. We’ll go out to supper to complete our celebration one of these days.

Marcia got a FitBit thing a while back, and she likes it very much. It helps her keep track of a lot of the things she needs to. Since I’ve been trying to do better on that front, like this (this evening):

Burned a kilocalorie

I could also do better at keeping track of such things, as well as managing my portion control through better records keeping. But I chose a different bit of gear: a Jawbone UP24. I executed the purchase through Amazon, which saved a few bucks, and I have had very few problems puzzling out how to make the App interface operate. I’ll report further on the product, the app, and how/if it’s helping me with any of my goals at some ill-defined later date.

  1. Happy Anniversary!

    Actually, you burned a megacalorie. 😉

    One food calorie = one kilocalorie, or enough to raise the temperature of a kilogram of water (= one liter) one degree Celsius. So you burned enough to raise the temperature of 1,000 liters of water by one degree C.

    And I see that at the end of it all your pulse was zero, which is generally a very bad sign.

      Cool, thanks for reminding me to look up my units. I’d probably burn up in the Martian atmosphere, too. And yeah, well … pulse. That functionality never actually worked on this NordicTrak … but I don’t care. The RPM is zero because I mostly get blur if I’m still moving my feet when I take the picture.
