OK, now for the fun stuff, or more challenges updates.
1. The challenge of getting to 100,000 steps first starting 10/1 is over. Someone post over that amount yesterday morning, before I even got out of bed. Sigh.
2. The challenge of who can take the most steps from10/1 - 10/15 is still ongoing. We'll see how my team does overall when it's over.
3. Fall 500,000 step challenge... completed on 9/28.
4. 30 active minutes for 30 minutes a day for 30 days... 18 days and counting.
Because I was upset/depressed over someone beating me before I really had a chance to walk (that's one thing I HATE about that other site, it calculates everything by east coast time. Since I'm on the West Coast I will NEVER win one of those challenges for (insert # of steps) first, my loving husband made up a challenge just for me.
Step 1 ~ Take 75,000 steps (or more) by Friday evening when I leave for an overnight trip and he'll take me rock climbing on Sunday.
Step 2 ~ For every 1,000 steps I take between Monday 10/1 and Sunday morning when we go rock climbing I earn $1.00 towards new clothes, which I really need as most of my wardrobe is over 3 years old.
Step 3 ~ For every 5,000 steps From Monday 10/1 - Friday 10/5 (when I leave for my overnight trip) I earn an extra $1.00.
So as you can see I've really stepped up my stepping this week. We'll see if I can keep up the pace I've set (I'd really like to get to 150,000 steps by Friday night). There are a couple of challenges to this. First and foremost... my feet HURT from all that stepping. Then there is the fact that tomorrow I will be working the early shift because I have a dentist appointment after work. Now, the dentist visit if I get in right away shouldn't take long. The permanent cap has come in for the tooth that was worked on last week.
I apologize to my teams as I know I haven't been around much this week. Not like I'd planned anyway. Because if I'm online I'm not adding to my steps.
Plan for Freggie strong end. Make sure I get at least 1 - 2 fruit/vegetables with each meal. Stay in calorie range, write down (and track) everything I eat and continue getting as many steps as I'm able. Go rock climbing with DH on Sunday and then relax a bit before continuing on.
