Mundane Life

Well, not much happening the last few days as I've been working. I have ditched the stool I use at work and make sure I walk around the block to and from work, if it is not raining. This has raised my total up a notch.

20th - 4000
21st - 7000
22nd - 5000

weight this morning 11st 8lbs - yippee, I have started to go down again

Back from my hols

Its been a week since my last blog, and that is mainly as I didn't have a lot of internet access when on holiday.

I seem to be raising my steps level, but still not able to reach 10000 steps a day, apart from that one day when on holiday we walked into town.

Yesterdays total was 2000, but as I completed nearly two hours gardening (clearing away grasses and weeds) I gave myself another 6000 for that work.

The two days prior to yesterday, I was back at work and didn't use the stool next to my computer. I also pottered about the house when I got home, tidying and cleaning. This must have made a difference as both days clocked in as 6000.

I currently weigh 11st 9lbs

Today I'm sat in Rarotonga after having a sucessful step day - yippee

But before that I'll explain that while I haven't reported all my total day's steps recently, I have logged them on my 8 week chart that the 10000 step organisation in Northland sent me.

Yesterdays total was around 7500 as we were travelling to the Cook Islands and obviously walking around the airport can take up a lot of steps especially as I had to retrace them a couple of times to buy a camera I wanted.

Today I have walked 15000 steps, yep, 15 thousand as Stuart and i walked into today, which took a couple of hours - we got the bus back LOL

Good girl :-)

Yep, pat on the back after yesterdays terrible effort, today I've
stepped 6500 times :-) not bad seeing that apart from walking the
long way to work to and from work, I didn't do anything else different.

Along with the fact I weighed in at 11st 9 this morning. So things are
looking up.

A lazy day

I haven't been totally lazy, just lazy with my steps. Only 3000 today and this is what I suppose would be a 'normal' day before the pedometer.

No walk around the block, no walking around the roads near the house and no extra walking on the spot.

No excuses, I will do better tomorrow :-)
