Day 7: Sick day
I hit my step goal last night, but I went to bed still feeling pretty gross. It turns out, my less than stellar feeling wasn’t the result of one too many cocktails at dinner on Tuesday night. I think it may actually be a cold or flu or something. I’m not sure. All I know is I woke up this morning feeling absolutely awful. I spent the day in bed and on the couch. I did not hit my step goal. Today, I failed my challenge for the first time.
But that’s what happens when you’re human right? You fail. Despite feeling awful and failing to get my steps in, I made myself get up and write this post because I’m not giving up on this challenge. I’m just going to pick myself up and start over tomorrow. I’m already starting to feel a little better. The headache that was plaguing me all day is finally gone.
That being said, starting over means my deadline will need to shift. I need to tweak this challenge just a teeny bit. Going forward, my goals is to walk 15,000 steps a day for 365 consecutive days. Wish me luck!
Current step total: 1,618
