If I wrote about all the good this week it would be too much so I'll just stick to two topics this time.
FITBIT: I just got back from walking Heidi and my Fitbit buzzed that I had made my 10,000 steps for the day. It's the first time this week, although I've come close one other day. I've grown addicted to the music on my phone (see MUSIC).
The Fitbit has changed my life by being the catalyst, along with the MyFitnessPal app, for me actually making progress in getting more active and eating healthy. It's a great use of technology.
For the first time since I started wearing my Fitbit (Apr 1 2015) two people on the same day asked me if I was losing weight. I've lost about 15 lbs since I started.
If you do Fitbit and you want to friend me I'm game :)
MUSIC: As I've mentioned before I am a Google Play subscriber. Today I discovered a new artist that I really love - Diane Arkenstone. If you are familiar with New Age music you've probably heard of her ex-husband, David Arkenstone. I had no idea she was also a composer and musician. She's described as a multi-genre artist and also works with her husband on albums. Right now I'm liking her Echoes of Egypt album - check on The Secret Chamber -
This week brought so many other great discoveries on Google Play - I hate to take up space listing them but
Top Three this week would have to be::
The Film Music of James Horner (sad how I didn't know about him till he died)
Disney/Pixar Greatest (Yes I love soundtracks)
Wings at the Speed of Sound (I forgot how much I love this album)
And last but not least the track I enjoyed the most was the long version of Crimson and Clover by Tommy James and the Shondells ( I've heard the radio version plenty of times buy how have I not ever heard this version - turn it up around the 2 minute mark). Brings to mind that feeling back in the 70's on warm summer nights. Crystal Blue Persuasion will always be my favorite by Tommy but I like this too.
My favorite way to listen to music has always been driving in my car by myself and now I can add listening to music on my phone while walking.
