Obsessed?

I really didn't feel like going out today. I must be getting soft in my old age. But I had at least one errand to do this morning. I needed to pick up something a little more comfortable than jeans for an airplane ride towards the right coast. Especially since my "minor surgery" last week is still making it somewhat painful to sit for any length of time and needing to occasionally take pain medication. I think that it may be a long plane ride.

Since I was heading into town, I stopped at College Coffeehouse and there were a couple of the regulars there. That's really when I realized what the temperature was. It made the coffee that much better. After coffee, I headed over to REI and picked up a pair of fleece pants. Very comfy and I was finally able to use up my dividend.

I tend to get caught up in things that may not mean much. An example of that are the exercise "rings" on my Apple Watch. Based on your activity during the day these rings gradually complete. The center ring is just from standing up for a few minutes every hour. The next ring is from some sort of activity such as walks and the outside ring is just estimated calorie consumption from everyday activity. Last month, I decided to at least try and "close the rings" every day. It seemed like a modest goal. Some would say that I am obsessed since the watch will remind you to stand up every hour.

The "rewards" are these little virtual badges that show up on the phone. So does this make me obsessed?

  2. Obsessed? Not in my book any more than my solving 6 Sudoku puzzles every morning. Seems like a positive step to being sure to keep being active.

  4. I don't think you are obsessed, maybe it is just a little OCD and you want all the rings the same.....

    1. Not the sam, just all closed. Which means my goal was reached.

  5. Obsessed? Well, no! Or maybe a little? I got distracted by that beautiful mug. I'd buy it in an instant. (I am a little obsessed with mugs, if you have to know...)

    1. Maybe a little may be accurate. It is a challenge when travelling.
