Making fitness fun

Posted on December 30, 2020


So the new year is about to begin and with it, our New Year’s resolutions, most of which revolve around getting healthier. Most of you can identify with the “COVID” diet that has caused our waistlines to grow.

My COVID diet consists of:

  • Cream for my coffee. After tasting this delicious combination, I can’t go back to fat free half and half.
  • Potato chips. Now, let’s be honest here. Does anyone ever crave an apple instead of potato chips?
  • Ice cream cake from Dairy Queen. I think I love this more than Dairy Queen blizzards!

I have put off my annual physical twice now since I don’t want to have my cholesterol checked. So far, I have used the excuse that I don’t want to go to the doctor’s office because of COVID, but that excuse is getting old. So, I am thinking I can just increase my exercise to counter the effects of this food.

Since I am fitness obsessed, er interested, I am always looking for ways to make my exercise more fun. Now many of you probably don’t think the words “fitness” and “fun” belong in the same sentence.

As a numbers person, I like to know my fitness statistics. Fitbit has helped me insure that I get my 10,000 daily steps. If, at the end of the day, I am short, I will march around the house, much to Mr. Ken’s amusement.

Well, the case for my beloved Fitbit disintegrated. Sadly, this Fitbit model is no longer made and the Fitbit website doesn’t sell just the cases. But Amazon to the rescue! I was very excited to see a number of choices for cases. I decided to go with polka dots because, why not? I smile every time I look at my Fitbit (which is alot.)

A special thank you to my good friend Steve, from “across the pond,” e.g. U.K. His fitness blog,, inspired me to take another look at my Fitbit. This post is for you Steve! 🙂

What do you do to make fitness more fun?
