I spent most of February in movie theaters. All for the love of The Oscars! I even became mayor of Edina Cinema on Foursquare!
I also watched The Great Beauty on Netflix which was my pick for Best Foreign Film. I'll recap how I did in my office pool in my March recap. Suspense!
February had its ups and downs because of the colder than normal temps and snow storms which prevented me from seeing my parents on two separate occasions. Two weeks were spent without Scott due to his work travel. Stewie and I had quite a bit of bonding time.
One of the best days of the month was Valentine's Day because Scott and I had a great time at Wits with guests Marc Maron, Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires. I don't normally like eating out on Valentine's Day but we hit up World Street Kitchen. I had the sweet onion stuffed falafel burger and we split the amazing salted carmel ice cream sundae.
Another highlight was having brunch with my aunt Becky, uncle Brad and cousin Kristina. It's always great to see family when they are in town.
I've continued tracking my Fitbit steps and visits to the gym. February by the numbers...
15 gym visits (more days at the gym than not!)
305,870 steps (10,923 averaged a day)
583 active minutes (19+ minutes a day)
As the temperatures keep increasing, I'm hoping my steps will follow. I'd like to average 30 minutes of active minutes a day which is based on me walking around 4 miles per hour or climbing a lot of stairs though I haven't completely figured out how my FitBit counts active minutes. My goal for the gym will continue to be that I am there more often than not.
