To quote Britney Spears, “Oops, I did it again.” Despite my claim that I would pay attention to my steps yesterday, and avoid having to walk the dreaded “living room laps” to hit my step goal, I didn’t do it.
At 8pm, I was barely at 8,000 steps. It took me over an hour of pacing the house to walk the remaining 8,000 steps. It was not fun. My feet hurt by the time I was done.
On the one hand – I’m proud of myself for sticking with this challenge and not throwing in the towel. I’ve never been good at following through on the things I commit to doing, so the fact that I’ve managed to embrace the suck and pace around my house in order to reach my goal, day after day, is a big deal for me. My streak is in the double digits!
On the other hand – it really does suck. The laps cut into my previous, and oh-so-limited, sleep time. For the hundredth time, I need to do better throughout the day to prevent this unnecessary, end-of-day “suffering.” The reminders are obviously not working as well as I’d hoped. I need to try something new. Any and all suggestions are welcome.
Final step count: 15,025
It’s Sunday. We spent the weekend at the beach, so we have a long drive ahead of us today. That means I’ll have less time to get my steps in. It’s not impossible to hit my goal today, but it’s going to take some creativity and effort.
I’m grateful I don’t have access to a scale this morning. I logged my meals again yesterday, and my end-of-day total was a bit excessive. I ate 3,278 calories!
