6475 steps yesterday.  I was just feeling lazy and didn't even worry about my total.  Did move every hour though so really not that bad.
I agree Grammabear.  We all have our limitations and you have to compare yourself to yourself.  I can't keep up with what I was doing a couple of years ago so I just do what I can.

84 this morning.  It looks like it will be a bit cooler but pretty dry here for the next few days.  They are reporting snow in Las Vegas this morning and the I-15 closed at State Line between California and Nevada.   
I don't know about breakfast Grammabear.  Most days I just have my coffee with HWC.  I use Sweeta and I don't know how you deal with the honey, it is really just sugar.  Timing may be important in eating and losing weight.  I lost about 80 pounds some years ago when I made lunch my big meal of the day and stuck to a light dinner.

78 this morning.

I also like flavored coffee and recently tried Starbucks Graham brand that I bought in the grocery store.  I've never had a coffee from Starbucks store as just looking at their menu kind of confuses me with all their choices.  I like my coffee with cream and a spoon of honey.  I used to dearly love cappuccino until my diabetes diagnosis, and then that all stopped.

I would like the group's opinion about eating breakfast.  I read an article in the Reader's Digest about eating breakfast and the benefits of eating within 90 minutes of waking in the morning.  I have wondered why I haven't been able to loose weight in spite of my efforts.  Maybe it is because I don't pay careful attention to what I eat or when?

187 this morning.

I generally have the store brands from BJs or Costco just for the price. I do add various flavorings to mine and keep an eye out for sales on coffee as I see them and will drink most any except for the canned varieties. I think it’s probably worth it to grind your own beans, but it’s a step I always skip. The one thing I like about Starbucks coffee is that their ground varieties are considerably finer than most but otherwise I don’t think the added cost is justified.

126 this partly cloudy morning, 116 at bedtime last night.

Colder today, 20° was the high. Overnight prediction 5°. Had about an inch of new snow overnight. I’m ready for it to be gone!

I don’t like the flavored coffees either. I usually just buy the store brand I shop at 3 different stores so there is some variety. I prefer the darker roasts a habit I got from late DH.

13,520 steps yesterday. Grocery shopping always adds more steps.

8168 steps yesterday.  I guess it makes it better for a lot of people to understand when they see distance, like miles, rather than steps  The problem is that it is different for everyone depending on how long their stride is.  With my short legs I have a stride of only 25 inches and 10,000 steps is equal to 4 miles.  if I had a more average stride of 30 inches the 10,000 steps would be equal to 5 miles.  Same number of steps but another mile.  That is why steps is a better way to express how much someone walks but it can be hard for someone that doesn't know the comparison.

I, for one, didn't realize at first that the Stepz app 'did' the conversion for me.  I have a short stride of 18" and often feel like I'm running, almost, to keep up with someone whose stride is much longer.  But I recently read and listened to a story about CT Fletcher, who is a American power lifter.  He says "get out and do 'something' that you are capable of doing.  His videos are really interesting, although his language might be objectionable to some.

8206 steps yesterday.  In the morning I vacuumed and mopped the kitchen and bathroom floors and then my back started to complain.  I really didn't think I was going to be able to make 7K for the day but it got better.

103 this morning.  Sunny and mild here and the prediction of snow next Thursday has disappeared and now is just a 10% chance of rain.  Weather predictions for more than a day seem to be pretty chancy.
I don't like flavored coffee at all so just coffee is my choice.

148 this morning and I have no clue why that happened.

If you drink coffee, what is your favourite brand or flavor?  I'm getting tired of the same old thing every morning.

Forecast for here was 3-5 inches of snow and maybe we got 1 inch (so far).  I would not cry if we don't get any more of the white stuff.
