New Nike+ Goal: 200 Mile Month

I spent most if the day at the Fairbanks Diabetes Expo and learned quite a few things. They had an endocrinologist that explained how different drugs worked and their interactions. A nutritionist explained not only why whole grains and fiber were good for you but explained the why. That is something that has been missing from everything that I've heard was the "why". It made a lot of sense while they were talking but now, 6 hours later, I'm trying to remember. But I do know that I'm going to be even more focused on the fiber (veggies) and whole grains.

I haven't felt much like walking most evenings but managed to get some walking in. I finally uploaded my data to the Nike+ site and I'm over 160 miles for the month. I have another week so I think I will try to hit the 200 mile mark this month. The Nike+ only records for "exercise sessions" as opposed to a regular pedometer. I carried a pedometer around for the first half of this month but since the WIN for Alaska fitness program uses duration of exercise instead of steps or distance, I stopped carrying it around. But I was still meeting my earlier goal (last year) or trying to walk at least 10 miles per day. There were some low days but overall, I was still managing to meet that goal.
