Yesterday I used a pedometer as soon as I got to work because I walk back and forth all day between the front desk and the women's dorm. I was surprised to see that I had walked over a mile! 5,440 steps! That was not counting the walking I do after work, and the many times I go up and down the stairs at home! I was wondering....do these steps count, since I go up and down the stairs every day, several times a day? I have read that if you do the same thing everyday, you will reach a plateau as your body becomes used to it, but even so, just being active is healthier than just sitting all day!
I really enjoy Sparkpeople! I am still learning how to use this site, but it really helps me to stay on track. I am noticing now that I look at my nutrition reports and am deciding on what to eat for my next meal, by what I need according to the report!
Today I am working until 2 pm, so I won't be able to attend church, but the Salvation Army brings the service here each Sunday, so I do get to get in a little worship time while I'm at work.
