As explained, a company called StepSuccess sent me one of their pedometer gadgets to trial, and I put it to use whilst my husband’s been abroad – a period of time when I’d be walking to and from the gym once or twice most days, walking the dog at least twice a day and doing various other bits of walking too. It should be noted that I made sure I wore the StepSuccess pedometer for dog walks, and occasionally wore it at other times (I often forgot!)
So, what are the walking totals from this past week? Let’s have a look:
You’ll notice a big drop in steppage yesterday – Saturday. That’s because I was at my nephew’s birthday party and some friend’s offered to walk the dog for me… bliss… huge thank you to Tim and Hayley!
In summary, this week, I’ve:
– walked 64,848 steps (and plenty of undocumented ones!)
– walked for 10 hrs 52 mins (and a few more)
– covered 31.3 miles (although distance is debatable, as StepSuccess doesn’t measure stride nor use GPS)
No wonder I’m knackered! Now if I can just take a couple more steps to the kitchen, I’m going to have my dessert…
(The dog says to tell you he’s pretty knackered too. You should hear the snoring!)
