Insomniac Rambling – #NaNoWriMo

I cannot sleep!

Mainly because I fell off my bike today on a gravel trail and messed my leg up, so I’m in pain, but still cursing the sandman.

I’m laying on my couch since I’m tossing and turning and uncomfortable even after pain medication. I don’t want to keep my husband awake. I’m scrolling through my social media feeds, looking up random bits of information, and just generally trying to tire my brain out when and idea hits me.

I don’t know where it comes from or why tonight at one in the morning it decides to makes it’s entrance, but here it is in all of it’s glory.

At the beginning of September, I committed to #NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, in which I will write 50,000 words in one month on an idea I either haven’t thought of or fully developed yet. I’ve been leaning towards one idea, but there isn’t a plot or any real basis for a story, so I wasn’t set on it.

Tonight, I think I’m set. Maybe insomnia is a good thing! We’ll see come November when I start writing. Until then, I’m working on the prep through an Instagram challenge for the month of September! Follow me on both!

Garmin Smartwatch – Vivoactive 3

Hubby was determined to get us smartwatches for activity tracking, swearing it would be the drive we needed to get back into working out. Ha! He’s so silly sometimes. Well, he went to Best Buy, hemmed, and hawed over the selection. Fitbit, or Garmin? We had both for some time before returning them previously (long story, the gist being a bigger and better model, the Vivoactive 3 and HR, were coming out soon)Image result for vivoactive 3

We both agreed the Fitbit App was intuitive, but underwhelming, whereas the Garmin App was overloaded with information, the polar opposite and overwhelming. The Fitbit had better food logging options, but Garmin’s bread and butter was fitness tracking. Since we had just purchased mountain bikes the past summer, he was all about the fitness tracking. (Ask me how many times we have ridden them.) 

Hubby finally settled on the Garmin after the salesman breathed his hangover all over us, and before we walked out of the store, Hubs had them on our wrists. He hooked them up to our phones and decided we needed to go for a walk which we hadn’t done in quite some time. So, yeah I guess it has gotten us moving, but as the honeymoon phase has waned, the watch aspect is becoming their sole use which is great for keeping time! Ha!
