Back from DC vacation

Saturday, March 23, 2013

I had a great time in Washington DC. I don't remember ever walking so much in my life! On Wednesday I walked (including stairs up to the Lincoln Memorial) over 25000 steps! Needless to say, I was quite sore on Thursday.

We did more sightseeing and walking on Thursday, about 15000 steps. Over the course of my 3 day vacation I burned roughly 5227 calories. I felt sore, but great!

We got back last night late and I slept in today. I went for a 15 minute power walk and will do one of my SP videos after dinner. I wish I could keep up the daily walking where I could burn so many calories, but I'd have to quite my job and walk 6 hours. Not likely to happen any time soon.

I'll just plan another vacation in the Fall that includes LOTS of sightseeing.

    NO PAIN, NO GAIN. Maybe it should read, LOTS OF PAIN, LOTS OF LOSS. Whatever the saying, it really pays off. I could no more do what you did than fly to mars,

    Good on you.
