In November, I really slacked off in regards to my New Year's resolution of putting more steps on my pedometer.  To be honest, it was my worst month all year (except for January when I lost my pedometer on the tarmac in Nairobi, Kenya and I had no way to keep track).  This pedometer geek...

With September comes fall, and generally a fall from continuing New Year's resolutions.  In one aspect, that was true.  For another, it wasn't.  My pedometer didn't get the workout that I wanted.  I wanted to make my goal of 10,000 steps every day, and 300,000 for the month, but...

My New Year's resolutions are still in force.  It helps, of course, to choose resolutions that one is motivated to do, and more important, continues to do.  My main resolutions, as mentioned before, have to do with reading more books and putting more steps into my day (and onto my...

I continue working on my New Year's resolutions, and May was an exceptionally good month for both of them, actually.  The first resolution is to read more books, and the second is to put more steps on my pedometer. I am, after all, a pedometer geek. May was one of my best months ever in the...

New Year's resolutions continue for this pedometer geek.  As reported previously, I have two (main) resolutions.  One is to increase my daily step count; the other is to read more books than last year. April was a decent month for both of my resolutions.  With the weather being...

I'm attempting to keeping my New Year's resolutions intact.  My main resolution  is to read more books than last year; the other is to increase the number of steps (preferably to 10,000 steps daily) on my pedometer.  This pedometer geek improved a bit on the number of steps in March...

New Year's Day has come and gone, and for many, so have the resolutions.  However, I am still working on my resolutions, and while not doing quite so well on my resolution to get in my 10,000 steps a day, I am getting more books read. Now that I have a new pedometer to replace the one that I...

In honor of Black History Month: On February 13, 1907, Cincinnati newspaper founder Wendell P. Dabney published The Union. Its motto, "For no people can become great without being united, for in union there is strength." (source: I, Too, Sing America)   Tomorrow is Valentine's Day so I decided...

A new year, but similar resolutions for me.  Reading more books and regularly achieving 10,000 steps per day on my pedometer are my main resolutions. (It is always easier to keep resolutions when the desire is already there, by the way.) Regardless of my reasons for choosing my resolutions,...
