It's 3:00pm in the afternoon, Its 104* and the students are having PE. in the gym. I have 30 minutes before they load the bus and I am thinking a nap would be really nice. I could turn on the air and drift off to that land of day dreams and make believe.
No No no! My pedometer only has 7268 steps and I WANT 10000 today. I set the breaks and remove the keys. I started walking the black top around the 20 or more basketball courts. 1 lap was equal to 3 minutes. That was nothing let's do it again! Lap 2 and lap 3 were 3 minutes each as well. I only planned on 10 minutes as it was really hot. I managed the 4th lap and looked at my pedometer. 14 minutes equaled over 1200 steps. I could feel sweat rolling down my back and my shins were barking. BUT i made it.
No Need for a nap I am wide awake now. I finished my bus route and come home to prepare dinner and finish a few chores . I just took out my pedometer and was happy to see my results.
I am pushing myself for the next 3 days to meet or go over today's steps! I can do this!
