This Sparked Me!

I do laps around the living room and kitchen while I'm on the phone. It's amazing how many extra steps you can add to your step count by the end of the day!! emoticon

    Oh yeah........& I live in basement apartment; get no cell phone reception, so I HAVE to go outside, so I walk around the yard & driveway. Also, my apartment is rectangular, with storage in the middle, so when brushing my teeth with my cordless toothbrush--which goes for 2 minutes when you turn it on--I walk all around the place twice a day! Each time is over 300 steps! emoticon
INGMARIE 7/2/2012 7:13:00 AM
