I walked 2.40 miles this morning. We had a little rain earlier and it's windy. Feels good.

I walked at a street fair today. Total for day: 8,500 steps, 3.5 miles.

I'm getting in as many street fairs as I can before the winter hits. I love the grilled ears of corn that are easy to nibble while walking.

Today was 9,500 steps just from work

We had a fire drill, and that helped.

9,500 steps. I walked to the grocery store and home from the training I was at and picked up my ipad from the gym to recharge it.

After getting 7-8k steps per day for the last five days it was good to be home today and get out and stretch my legs a little bit. It was only a so–so tide but I did get 16,000 steps today and feel much the better for it.

Sounds like easygoing had a banner weekend and can take as much of a break as she wants.

I've been struggling to get a consistent amount of exercise done each day, but nevertheless there do seem to be some signs that my rather poor fitness levels might be starting to improve a bit.

Knowing that walking is supposed to be one of the best and easiest forms of exercise for all-round health, I've been trying to do a certain amount of exercise on my stepper machine each day, as well as a little Tai Chi and some very light use of dumbbells. Due to the weakness of things around my ankles, though, I find using the stepper tougher than actual walking and was interested to see this latest video from SciShow about the "how many steps a day" thing and exercise:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyrCPi3cTjw

I found this heartening because it means I've been doing somewhat better than I'd thought, but also means I can shift focus away from the stepping and more onto other low/no impact exercsie that will get my heart rate up.

I mowed the backyard with the push mower and got 1.20 miles! It puts a good spin on mowing.

I was at work from morning to night, so thankfully I got 10K while doing my work. Kind of makes me less bitter about needing to stay so long.

I finally got my pedometer up and running last night in preparation for today, which was my first outing to the Scituate Art Festival. It's sooo much walking even though I got a sweet parking spot in the midst of it all. I didn't put on the pedometer until I got there and took a picture of the steps when I left so I'd know exactly how much walking I did there alone. I walked 8674 steps from 10am-2pm. That's pretty decent, I think, considering it was almost exclusively casual meandering on my part and I'm not good with walking long distances. I also went to Wally World and Michael's and JoAnn's afterwards and let the pedometer keep ticking. I'm close to 14500 steps now and will cross at least 15000 steps before I call it a night.

Kelt, you can KEEP these high step days! For those of you who don't know me, I have a very short stride so I get 2-3 steps for every one of you long-legged people. I feel like I'm a 7000-7500 step a day person so today hurt. My tootsies are in the bubble bath as I type. I also have a blister, dammit. That started around the 3000 step mark but I persevered.

It's not even 11am and I've got in 4500 steps. I had to get up before the sun to meet the contractors and I walked around my work property to make sure no one was there so they didn't get trapped once the crew started and then I was up so I meandered around the house a bit and here I am.

Tired.

I see a nap in my future.

My nephews and I took a walk today. I took turns with Slayde pushing Carter's stroller. I didn't start keeping track of steps until we were already walking. Once I did we walked a mile.

I'm having fun with my pedometer. I'm at 6906 right now and will definitely get in well over 7000 steps by bed time. I did some manual labor today too.

It was a day off and I spent most of it standing in one place, working on a project, so I got bupkiss for steps. I won't even hit 2000 by day's end.

I made a pact with myself to go for at least a short walk every day, and so far this week I have done it. Only two days but it's a start!!!

I've been running errands and walking a lot today so my total right now is 8050. I'll get in another few hundred steps in before I call it a night.

I got 10K yesterday at work and am at 9,300 now, so I'm really happy with that.

Today, yesterday, and the day before have all been 10K steps just from work. I am happy about that. The fitbit is fun. It's like a videogame. Very nerdy.
