Getting in the Steps!

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I am working at my niece's Bed and Breakfast while she is on vacation. I do everything from cooking to cleaning, to booking and shopping. I don't drive, so I do all the shopping by walking and then carrying whatever I buy home in my backpack. Yesterday I logged 10589 steps. I bought a box of sandwich bags and some deli sliced ham at a store almost two miles away.
Today I didn't go to the furthest store, but bought a gallon of milk and carried it home in my backpack. Every day I can find something we need and use it as a good reason to get out there and get moving.
My goal for the two weeks I am working at the inn is to log 10000 steps each day and to go home lighter than I was when I arrived! I am also trying to eat healthy in spite of all the nice neighbors that are bringing me treats and inviting me to dinner.
