Yesterday I mentioned that I would like feedback on a slide show produced using Slide.com which allows you to produce a free slide show in minutes which you can put on blogs or websites.
For some strange reason the comments seems to not be working on the post but people have been leaving comments on the post – which is fine. I appreciate that people took the time out to try it and leave a comment about it. So a big thanks to all!
Yesterday I quickly made a slide show and put it on a section of my site here and asked if people who are on dial up has problems. Those on dial up are reporting it takes a couple of minutes to load. I really feel that this is too long. So out of consideration to them I will not be using slide shows on my blog although I think they are fun.
OK on to the 10,000 steps a day challenge. My general level of activity is hanging round the same place. I am still more active while wearing the pedometer and having to blog this each Monday morning makes me aware of how I am using my body. So for me this challenge is working out for me.
I would like to maintain a general level of activity at the 70,000 steps in a week without having to go to gyms etc. I am hoping to establish a pattern of simply being more active without having to think too much about it. Establishing patterns work for me as I end up just doing it. So rather than the pattern being me happily sitting all day stitching or at a computer I just want to constantly include more activity. This is a long term goal. I hope that in 20 years the activity level is the same and as a result my level of general health is better. One advantage I have found is that neck and shoulder pain through too much sewing has totally gone. I think I may have lost a kilo or two but I only weigh myself when I think of it.
Other stitchers involved in the challenge (to my knowledge) are
Linda of Chloe’s Place
Janet of Just bee cause and for the fun of it
Glenna with her relatively new blog Eye of the Needle
Karen South of Karen South’s Crazy Quilting World
Sue of threads
