9206 and One More Time…

So, my new toy arrived yesterday! I was so excited I strapped it on immediately! My plan was simple: the first day I am just going to be “normal” and see where I am starting with my step count. To be honest, I thought I would be in the lowly 4 or 5 thousands. I was pleasantly surprised to check it just before bedtime and see 9206.  Yes, I am still below 10,000 steps, but not that far under.  How exciting!  I guess I really do not give myself enough credit sometimes.

I am interested to see how today goes.  Yesterday was a gym day, today is not.  I did not do cardio on the elliptical yesterday, but I did do 10 minutes (1 mile).  So, I know that accounted for a decent amount of my steps for the day.  My goal is to be solidly up to (and beyond) 10,000 steps consistently by the end of this month.

As for the “One More Time” part of the post…well, Andie decided since she already had a cool, nifty toy that she wanted me to redraw for a winner.  So, someone else still has a shot at this level of fun with me…

And, so, that brings us to Charity as my new step-counting buddy! This should work perfectly with her new goal to take the stairs each day at work! Congrats, Charity! Please e-mail me at addictblog@aol.com with your address and I will get this gadget out to you immediately.

  1. Good luck on your journey, Erica; those first steps are always the hardest but once you get going, anything is possible. Great post and I look forward to sharing more with you:))

    • Thanks! I still hit a hiccup here and there, but it is much easier to keep trucking when you’ve already been on a roll. 🙂

      Thanks again for stopping by and for the kind words!

  2. I am doing the happy dance at work! I just emailed you back with my address. You seriously don’t know how much this means to me! 🙂 I even put in the email that I woke up this morning feeling a little overwhelmed with just how much weight I really need to lose. And, I was disappointed in myself for not going to the gym before work. But, this has totally changed my day around. I think being your step counting buddy will just encourage me and motivate me even more! Thank you again! I’m so appreciative of this! 🙂 And, excited to see how many steps I take. It is after all about the small steps. Thank you for your support to!
