Chester and I go for 2 walks every day, but the last few days, I have been trying to beat my steps from the days before. To do that today, I had to go on a longer walk.
This started innocently enough on Saturday. I had a shift to work at a location fairly close to home. I go there often, but usually I go from one location to another and there isn’t much time in between – so I drive. This time I did not have an earlier shift and it was fairly mild outside, so I walked.
The 7,000 steps back and forth that day gave my steps a boost for the day. I had over 20,000 steps for the day. I have made it over 20,000 steps before, but normally I am in the 16,000 range (which is my official daily goal). I didn’t work on Sunday, and thought it would be nice to beat my distance that day, so I went to the zoo. There is a good distance to cover at the zoo and by the end of the day, I beat my Saturday total by about 1,000 steps.
Now, it is Monday and again I am not working, so it just seemed natural to beat that distance today. 🙂 I mapped the distance to the Forks, but that wasn’t quite long enough. I still went to the Forks, but took a longer route than the most direct one.
I had my official goal of 16,000 steps met before I got home and had an additional 1,000 steps by the time I did get home.
I have to work tomorrow – so that will cut down my steps for the day, but I’ll see what I can get up to for the rest of today and then will work on tomorrow.
Here are my last 2 days according to FitBit and my day today as of noon.
