Almost 7000 steps
Friday, August 21, 2009
I was really aching yesterday. I bearly got in riding on my cycle and I knew I didn't get very many steps in today.
Feeling better today I looked down and saw that I was getting close to 7000 steps. So after I cycled I walked to get over 7000 steps for today-quite an accomplishment for me since the operation. The pedometer doesn't work on the cycle so I was really excited.
I should have known the turtle hasn't made that many steps. I downloaded the pedometer and only made 4,753 steps today and 2,382 steps yesterday. Monday I made 4,745 steps. I'm making improvements but not as fast as I thought. The turtle moves on...I just learned that I passed 4000 fitness minutes. That's great.
I don't get as many steps on the weekend. I will go to water areobics in the morning and try to cycle so my minutes will go up even if I don't reach the steps.
