I bought a pedometer at Target yesterday. It was an impulse buy (they were on sale), but it's actually kind of fun to see how many steps I've taken. It's recommended that everyone strive to take 10,000 steps per day, so that's what I'm shooting for.
Today was the first day I tried it out and I took 8,500 steps.
This was a pretty typical day for me, work from 8:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., nap in the afternoon with Eva (that's not typical...well, sometimes it is), then going to the gym with Ryan and doing 30 minutes of elliptical and 30 minutes on the bike. Obviously the pedometer didn't count "steps" while on the bike, so I think 8,500 was pretty good actually.
Tomorrow should be easy to reach 10,000... teaching from 8:30 - 3:30 and working at the restaurant from 4:00-9:00. I'll definitely have to challenge myself on the weekend, though.
Here's to New Years resolutions...gotta go... some
