I Surpassed My Previous Steps Per Day - woo hoo!!!

Sunday, June 23, 2013

I went for a long walk last year with a friend of mine who was training for the Avon 3-day. I couldn't make it all the way. But when I got home, I checked my pedometer and saw that I was around 39,000 steps. I have been in the 20s and 30s lately - which is above my 17,000 steps per day goal.

Thursday, I ate horribly because we were away for the first time for the year. So I had to go to my favorite fried food place and favorite bakery. I had the worst heartburn and indigestion ever. It was horrible. I got sick too, but not too bad. I vowed to make up for it on Friday, which I did. Here's the break-down:

17 min. walk to library and back
34 min. strength training
92 min. weighted hula hoop
77 min. walk with hubby

TOTAL: 45,368 steps for the day!!!
16.45 miles
1,587.8 calories burned

Then, to bring me down after being so happy about what I accomplished, I gained a few pounds. I can't win. I just wanted to share this accomplishment with all my Spark Buddies!

Have a Sparktacular day!!!

    Could be salt, eating fatty food or it could in part be muscle. I would check my measurements to see which way they went before I beat myself up over something. You're doing great! emoticon

    Do you have a fitbit or regular pedometer? I just got a fitbit flex and love it! Records your sleep too!
You are doing great! If I walked 16 miles in one day, I wouldn't be able to walk the next day!! Wowza!
That is something about the 3 it was from your binge the day before...sodium!! Happens every time! I know all to well! It will come off quickly! Keep going! emoticon emoticon
