February 8, 2015

I cannot believe January has come and left!

Well, it’s another year.  Another set of resolutions that I probably will fail.  But I am definitely going to try here!

Calories Burned:  18 (Average)

Steps:  2,664 (Average)

Work Out Activities:

I got a Gear Fit 2 recently because I love being able to have an accurate account of how many steps I took and how many calories burned.  It works perfectly with my Note 3.  I love that sucker!
