5K at work. Step counting makes having to run around at work much less annoying!

Sitting, texting and playing games doesn't have any health benefits, so that's why it's not counted.

I was puzzled when we compared steps throughout the rest of the day.. I wonder if my walking gait had anything to do with hers? We covered the same area, yet she had more. It was her arm movements..lol
Yes. A person with long legs can cover more ground than someone with shorter legs. I have a very short gait and often take 2 and 3 steps for one of someone else's.

For a visual, think of two dogs running side by side: a Dachshund and a Doberman. Think of how fast those little hot dog legs are moving to keep up with the Dobie. That's me with most of the people I know. On the bright side, my step count usually is pretty high.

Today was a big day of steps for me. After I finally got settled, after getting home from work and feeding Petunia and getting my salsa prepped to sit and meld in a bowl over the weekend, my fitbit went bezerk (!) and buzzed my wrist to tell me that I walked over 11K steps. But as soon as it did that, it flipped to a new day and it annoys me because I somehow bumped a setting on my Fitbit and it's not even midnight yet, but it's on a new day now, lol (or not). << wry smile>>

I probably won't get much steps in tomorrow, since today was a big day; but I do have my therapy appt tomorrow and I have a couple of errands too.

It feels good when I have days where I have a high step count.

I'm hoping to figure out how to reset the clock on my Fitbit, so I can get the right time on it again.

I went late afternoon to the gym. I did 35 minutes on the stairmaster (Level's 3,2,1 x 2 min each level x 5 sets, then level 1s, HR 140s to 170), then I did 25 min on the weight floor stretching and doing weights and such.

I met a woman in her twenties in the locker room named Kayla. She had just quit her day job because she was now able to focus full time on her start-up. I guess if I see her again I will have to ask what her start-up is.

Default Yummy exercise

I went to a dance class this morning.... we played a bunch of songs but this song was on the playlist, Yummy by Justin Bieber, and I did some yoga stretches and stuff while listening to this song (it was an extended remix).

My step count remains about the same during the week except for the days I get more than 10K.

I'm learning to get different types of exercise in, lately. Like the group dance class exercise I participated in today and a yoga stretch session on the floor at home or going, soon if possible, for a swim at the community center in my neighborhood.

Happy Saturday to all of you

I'm still hating on the gym so it's all work and home chores for me. 5848 steps so far today.

I have been shocked when at the end of the day, I've checked my steps! Huge 13,668 on Thursday, and the others have been 10,000 to 11,000.

I'm working my ass off. Well, if I had one, it would be gone by now, lol. My arms and legs are totally getting a work out. Oh, and one smashed toe. Its turned an awful shade of purple.

oh most definitely. My friends always tell me to slow down. Lol. I say, but I'm not walking fast!

Now that I'm stuck at home due to COVID-19, including working from home, I am worried about not getting in even my small amount of 800 steps. I'm going to start walking to the end of my driveway and back - a little embarrassing as the neighbors have never seen me walk with my rollator - but what the heck, who cares? But today it's raining, and it's supposed to rain for the next few days. I used to do some walking in place/calisthenics (usually to blasting NIN or some industrial or grunge thing - I no longer even have a stereo capable of "blasting".) I guess I will try that again. At least I don't go anywhere when I do that (since it's all in place), so I don't have to come back from anywhere!

It was so gorgeous here today. Sunshine, balmy weather, it felt great being outside all day today. I got about 8500 steps in, at work.

I actually got a call back from the doctor's office and they realized that I *HAVE TO* have that A-1c blood panel workup done, so they got me into a remote testing site, tomorrow morning, for my fasting labs. The doctor will call me next week by phone to conduct our office visit.

All this past week, except for today, I logged 10K to 13K steps, but I've never made it to 15K. Today I was just plum tired. So I think getting 8500 was okay.

If I am furloughed to time off from work next week, I'm just going to work up the courage to see if I can ride my bicycle for longer periods of time. Because if I can do that, then I will venture out for a short, but kinda long bike ride to the store, which is about a 3 mile ride to get to the store. 6 miles, altogether. I don't know if I can do it, but I'm gonna try it (soon).

So I went outside just to get in my car and drive to the pharmacy yesterday, and I felt like my lungs were going to collapse! I had to go inside and lie down! The pollen count here right now is something else (it has something to do with how much it rained last week and then all of a sudden got sunny). So I don't think I'll be walking down my driveway.
