I have lost my trusty pedometer. It is a great pedometer-an Omron. I looked all over to find a good pedometer for me. It is large, has a safety clip, and I can wear it at my waist or in my pocket. Since I got it I have worn it every day and faithfully tracked my steps. After wearing it about 6 months, I rarely go below 10,000 steps. It has really increased my awareness of how active I am and how I used to sit a lot.
When I realized I couldn't find it yesterday morning, I frantically looked everywhere for it. Under things, in things, etc. I even went thru every trash can in the house in case I threw it away with something else. I went thru the hamper and all my coats and clothes in the closet. I can't quite remember when I looked at it last, but think I brought it home from our weekend in the cabin. Anyway, I can't find it.
I have slowly over the course of the last 24 hours come to realize that although I love my pedometer, I don't NEED it. I don't HAVE to have a pedometer to stay active. I am active now. I have changed my lifestyle. I just get up and move now. I love it!
I will keep looking for it, at home and at the cabin, but if I don't find it...oh well, life goes on. I am an active person now, with or without a pedometer.
