Yesterday was the first time in a LONG time that my pedometer ended the day with five digits. Over 10,000 steps! It used to be a daily event and easy to achieve, but lately it has been unbelievable difficult to achieve. It felt good to reach 10,000. I took a walk in the morning, shopping with the 1 yr old, helped my 8 yr old try to ride her bike with no training wheels, worked, and then decided to take the 4,000 step walk to achieve 10,000.
I need to make this a daily occurrence once again. I felt like I really achieved something special as I have been averaging 6,000-7,000 steps and I know I should be reaching 10,000. So, like I did way back when I was actively losing 80 pounds, I shall pledge to reach 10,000 whatever it takes. If I need to take a 4,000 step walk at 9:00pm, that's what I'll have to do because I know it felt great. Passed up the elliptical last night in favor of the walk, but if that's what it takes to get 10,000 it's probably not a bad trade-off.
