Day 7: Sick day

Day 6

I cut it pretty close last night. Despite the crappy weather, I did my best to walk around the house and take a walk or two outside. Unfortunately, I got distracted. It wasn’t until I was getting ready to go to bed around 10:30 pm that I realized I was still short of my 15,000 step goal by about 1,400 steps. I had to walk laps around my bedroom for at least 15 minutes or more. It sucked, but at least I hit my goal.

Final step count: 15,258

Day 7

Unfortunately, although I hit my goal last night, I went to bed still feeling pretty gross. It turns out, my less than stellar feeling wasn’t a result of the couple of cocktails I had on Tuesday night, it was actually 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.

Since I did have this small setback, going forward I’m going to include my previous and current step goal success streaks on my future posts. My challenge will be complete and a success when my current streak hits 365 days. I can do this.

Current step total: 1,618

Current step goal streak: 0 days
Previous step goal streak: 6 days
