So last month was a total waste for me walking. Too much (lazy) vacation, 2 messed up knees and a broken toe made for a rough month trying to come anywhere near my goal. I know, I know, it's a bunch of excuses, but it'll have to do.
My goal for August is again 8500 steps a day, which is 263,500 steps for the
month. I'm already behind (and since my shoes still don't really fit due to the broken toe), I'll probably be more behind very soon.
So here goes:
Aug 1: 4543 steps. Hobbling along.
Aug 2: 3683 steps. Still hobbling.
Aug 3: 2094 steps. I was probably closer to 7000 but we had a wedding to go to, and I had no place to put the pedometer on my fancy dress! I only wound up wearing it for about 4 hours.
Aug 4: 3323 steps. Sore and achy from overindulging and over-dancing at the wedding!
Aug 5: 3521 steps. TOTALLY lazy Sunday! We played games and built Legos (and hung around in my big bed reading books!)
Aug 6: 3967 steps. Catching up on housecleaning but no major walking.
Aug 7: 6049 steps. Shopping and errands add up fast! I'm incredibly behind, but typing this up has renewed my need to walk! I'm heading out in the morning... hopefully my tennies fit, I've been wearing flip flops since the break.
Aug 8: 8943 steps. Managed the walk (although parts of that trail are creepy when it's just the baby, me and whatever guy walks past!
Aug 9: 12482 steps. Great America is killer, especially when you're there for 7 hours!
Aug 10: 6742 steps. Exhausted after yesterday, but a couple shopping trips add up.
Aug 11: 5682 steps. Celebrating my brother's birthday.
Aug 12: 4934 steps. Had neighbors over for dinner, so I spent a long time cooking!
Aug 13: 4221 steps. Running kids around to two summer camps!
Aug 14: 4924 steps. Vegging out.
Aug 15: 8498 steps. Managed a decent walk, but I didn't look at my pedometer before bed (or I would've taken those 2 extra steps!!)
Aug 16: 6974 steps. To and from 2 camps is a lot, plus we had karate and girl scouts!
Aug 17: 8756 steps. Helping at physics camp... Apparently 4 hours teaching is a LOT of steps!
Aug 18: 4990 steps. Celebrating the little one's bday (family style, party to come later) and prepping for back to school.
Aug 19: 12892 steps. Last day of vacation! Off to Great America. I had several thousand more steps while I wasn't wearing the pedometer because of being soaking wet.
Aug 20: 17943 steps. First day of school, first day of getting back to my walks without dragging big kids along!
Aug 21: 5085 steps. Slow day and fussy tot.
Aug 22: 3269 steps. Total laziness!
Aug 23: 4799 steps. Running errands and catching up with school stuff.
Aug 24: 12645 steps. Managed another walk!
Aug 25: 4556 steps. Party at a friend's house, sitting around and visiting.
Aug 26: 5190 steps. Running kids to bday parties and house cleaning.
Aug 27: 12945 steps. Decent walk, Walgreens and Home Depot, then painting my bedroom ceiling.
