After five challenging, but successful days, I ruined my streak by less than four hundred steps.
It was such a dumb way to fail.
After walking hours of living room laps because I’d spent the day on the couch recovering from one too many cocktails the night before, I decided to take a short break. I only had about 350 steps to go and it’s was only 10pm; there was plenty of time to get those steps in – or so I thought.
I got comfortable. I lost track of time. It wasn’t until after midnight that I realized I hadn’t finished walking my steps. I quickly opened the Garmin app on my phone and saw it: 14,679 steps.
I knew better. As I sat there on the couch, I remembered having the fleeting thought that I shouldn’t have sat down. With so few steps left, I should have just gone ahead and finish them right away. Why did I risk it?
Honestly, I don’t know why, but that’s ok. Shit happens. I’ll learn from today and do better tomorrow. Before you know it, I’ll have a new streak going!
