My name is Debbie and I am a retiring fundraiser who had a book filled with my new season things to explore. Then Covid-19 struck and many of those things have been postponed. July 1 looms ahead and while I have volunteered to work at the University two days a week...I doubt they will let me given that even thought there is a hiring freeze, they don't want to reclassify my job as part-time.

I love to garden, read, sing and enjoy good food and wine. I started to draw my IBM pension in March 2016, though I have no plans to collect my Social Security until 70 (February 2021). I had planned to spend 33% of my time traveling around this beautiful world, 33% helping others as a volunteer and the rest enjoying my life and living simply.

I achieved my top career goal in November 2016 to become a Certified Fund Raising Executive.I renewed that in January 2020 while at the University of San Diego and will retire July 1, 2020.

I am concentrating on building and rebuilding my body for optimum health with my wellness doctor/coach since mid-February. Lifestyle choices are hard to make and even harder to keep. But every day is a new day.

    But MFP *does* link to Fitbit! Go up to the top ribbon of tools and click on "APPS". On the right hand side menus it has "Categories". Pick Step Trackers, and FitBit is the first app listed.

    You might want to give that a try.

    That said, I still happen to prefer Cronometer, but that's me. Just that MFP has so many Sparkers headed in that direction, so I have a tent pitched there, too, but I'm not tracking my food twice. Not gonna happen (says Toddler Barbie)! Cronometer is so shiny!
