I'm using a step counter. Part of me is just curious as to how much exercise I get each day from just normal life. I plan on taking it to Florida and walking as much as possible up and down those sandy beaches.
Here's how the day broke down:
7:30 kids awake- 986 steps already taken
9:45 house work done (mostly)- 3355 steps taken
11:30 Finished working in the garden and noticed that the thing had reset itself- 335 steps taken
Took the step counter off until about 2:00 because it was bothering me.
Went to the bank, CVS, made dinner, had guests over, walked baby John up and down the side walk- 3004 steps taken.
8:00-9:00 Went to water aerobics.
According to my calculations I exceeded the recommended 10,000 steps, walked over 2 miles and burned something like 200 calories. I should be a waif if it weren't for those Mother's Day desserts.
