Reaching new heights?
Thursday, January 03, 2013
Well, without my treadmill, I have been forced to improvise a bit. Today was my first day back to work after the holidays. I work at a local hospital that is very large so I decided to see how many ways I can use that to my advantage. I started by walking from one side to the other. After doing this a few times, I ventured into other areas. I have to walk down 3 sets of steps if I choose to eat at the cafeteria. (I haven't been eating there for a while now because I started bringing my lunch so I could track my calories easier and eat healthier.) I decided to aim for the stairway just to log some steps. I know it should have been obvious but it didn't dawn on me until I actually got to them, that there are also several floors that lead up in the same stairwell. I thought I'd give it a try so that I could not only get some steps but also log some floors on my Fitbit. I ended up going up what I thought was 7 floors, I wanted to aim for 25-30 floors but, when I checked my Fitbit, it was actually 11 floors so by the time I finished I had actually gone 45! I couldn't believe it! With all those steps, I have a good start for my daily totals. I still want to log more tonight so it will be fun to see how far I make it!
