Buggin while at a party
Sunday, September 20, 2009
I was invited to a party where I didn't know anybody but the couple we arrived with last night, so I didn't want to walk around with my arm band showing. I know I need to just embrace it & wear it proudly, but I am in need of meeting new people here & I don't want to give off the impression that I may be on house arrest or something... lol!
I did, however, find a way to wear it in a concealed place and ended up racking up the steps as I made my rounds. I hid it on my calf under my jeans & it recorded just as it does with my tricep. I don't think they recommend doing this all the time, but if it means getting a close to accurate reading as opposed to none at all, I had to do it.
I shared my results with my husband this morning - it is interesting to look at my activity reports and figure out just how many steps it takes me on my uphill 30 min. walk with the dog. When I do this 3 times a day, I have NO problem meeting my 10,000 steps goal as long as I am active for the day.
It's fun figuring these things out, and I love the fact that I can splurge with a late-night party & still meet a deficit.
