Run, Melinda, Run!
Well, we all know THAT ain’t happening!! Unless the house is on fire. Or the babies are in immediate danger.
But, on the advice of my physician, my friends, family, and DH, I did begin walking.
Yes, I was already capable of walking, now I began walking on purpose!!
So, I plan to start a new series. Bragging on myself for walking. Yes, indeed, folks, that’s how much of an attention hog I am. I have to garner accolades for doing what even babies do, all by themselves.
April 16th was my first foray. I did 667 steps that day.
April 18 was 1,493! .67 of a mile!! That shocked me!
20th- 1,503 .64 of a mile again!! Wait! 1,493 was .67, and 1,503 was .64 ?? (Something is wrong with this picture. I knew it. Math messes with me again.)
22- 1,998 .85 mile We had the girls, so that explains the Sunday steps!!
April’s count ended up as 18,525!! 7.89 miles!!
Giving myself “Atta
boys! girls!” is a good motivator! Also, as ya know, I make sure everyone else gives them to me too!!
Over 7 1/2 miles, this month, is really excellent! And especially since I just tracked my daily stuff. After the first 2 days of going around the block, I just kept my phone in my pocket all day.
So, I wasn’t worn out from “exercising.” I was just getting credit for what I was already doing, on a daily basis.
I probably won’t ever achieve DH’s 2 miles a day…… But ya never know- stranger things have happened!
