Episode 5: Purple Valkyrie needs energy badly

I promised myself I would blog every night, but I'm exhausted.  I'm not sure if it's because I'm not eating as much energy, or if it's just that today was a really hard day at work, but I am nearly falling asleep.

Diet is still going well. I am eating what I'm supposed to be eating as far as I can tell.  I am trying out different pedometer programs on my Droid and finding that one of them eats my battery like crazy, but I can't figure out which one is the one that is draining my battery.  Here is a quick run down of all of the apps so far:

Noom Walk Pedometer wasn't very good. I walked 50 steps and it recorded only about 8.  I tried to set the sensitivity up, but it didn't help at all.

I tried Walk Me, which is really cute. Basically, there is a very small pet thing that you're supposed to please by walking more and more until you make your goal.  I wanted it to work, because who can stand a sad monster, but it wouldn't stay on while the phone turned off. In the end, it only recorded about 300 steps all day.

The one that seems to work, but also seems to be draining my battery is Accu-pedo.  It's really good, but isn't free, as I only have a seven day trial. It recorded 2400 steps for the day, which isn't too bad, but I could do a lot more. I have to figure out my stride length to make sure that I really walked the 1.3 miles it said I did today, but I'm pretty sure, as I have short little legs, it probably wasn't that much.

So, another stepping stone onto my journey to fat freedom.  I'm tired and I'm still hanging out in SL talking about writing.  I love writers!  Back to it then!

Thanks for reading!



  1. Tory Lynn,

    I had trouble with energy in the beginning (still do sometimes). A couple of almonds with a couple of slices (or pieces if it is something like berries) always help for me. Congrats on sticking to it :) It is difficult, but you can do it!

  2. Thanks Cassy for the advice and the support! It means a lot to me (as I know you know!)

  3. I think it is a b pricey, but my mom loves the WW pedometer. It counts your steps and calculates activity points for you. Good luck!

  4. Thanks for the advice! I used to have one, but it got caught on something when I was using the bathroom and... flip... just went down the toilet, literally. I'm much more careful with my Droid! :)

 I know that I started this as a weight loss/health blog, but I think it's just going to become my blog. Just me and my random-ass thoug...
