I was less exhausted after work on Tuesday. I wore the pedometer all day.
When I parked my car at the mall where i work, I was in the farthest parking space and added up a few more steps.
I was too busy working alone to actually have a lunch break. Too bad, no walk for me.
I was invited out for dinner and made a choice I would not usually make-- I ordered a Greek salad. I enjoyed lots of tomato, cucumber, red onion and green pepper. The dressing tasted more like oil and vinegar than what I remember Greek salad dressing to be. (Oh well.)
In the evening, I spent less time knitting than I would have liked but that translated into more steps around the house.
My numbers are an eye opener: 3,746 steps. That worked out to 1.53 miles. (Is that all?) Then the message that topped it all.... during my work day, my walking used up 106.2 calories!
Think of all the items we eat, taste and sample that would add 106 calories. It is so easy to add the calories and it takes real work and focus to convert that and use it up.
This wasn't a day of huge change, but I tried to make healthy choices throughout the day.
