AnnMarie is one of my favorite imaginary friends (I know her through our blogs), and she knows me quite well, I think. Because I am definitely becoming step obsessed. And that 10,000 step goal keeps tantalizingly beyond my reach. Tonight when I got home from work and grocery shopping, my Fitbit read 9,0001 steps. Aarrgh! It wasn’t horribly late so I decided to go for a walk and close out the day by hitting 10,000. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) I ran into a neighbor who had been ill and stopped to visit with her on the driveway, using up most of my walking time. I ended up only going half-way round the neighborhood path, ticking off dogs all around, and had to give up short of my goal.
So I ended up at 9,610 steps, the equivalent of 4.26 miles walked, and 1,907 calories burned. Not bad, but not what I wanted. I will hit this tomorrow come hell or high water…even if I have to walk around the neighborhood a couple of times before going to work!
Check this space for further updates. Sweet dreams.
