A step count isn’t only good when it’s a really high number…
You see, I not only took 25,000 steps (FitBit on the ankle to track them) today, but – and these are likely a bigger deal than those 25,000 – I took two big steps for myself and my life.
And it is way late at night right now for me just to have gotten home, but it has been a good day… a very good day. 🙂
And I am grateful dafür.
That feeling when you’re ready for bed, but realize that you need another half hour’s worth of steps to reach your daily step goal….
And then, that feeling a half hour later, when you actually turn out the lights to go to sleep, after having kept your commitment to reach your step goal every day, including today.
Keep at it, y’all. ❤
Sometimes, getting creative can be useful not only for the immediate goal, but also for a secondary but equally important one. You see, I didn’t have all my steps in for the day (based on my step goal on my fabulous FitBit) this evening, and so I was pacing forward and backward while talking with my mom. She told me that it was just too weird that I was doing that – literally walking forward and then reversing, while still facing and talking with her – and that I needed to stop walking like that. And so, I got creative. I walked at least five different ways that did not involve a forward-backward trek, and asked my mom how each one was. On the really fast shuffled steps, neither one of us could hold it together – it was just too funny. And so, by being creative and silly, I not only moved my step count closer to my step goal for the day, but I also created an opportunity for my mom and me to bond a little bit more. Mind, body, and soul are doing well. Healthy on all fronts tonight! 😛
I started doing all of this activity in order to help my body be happy, healthy, holy…, but now my body really just hurts all over, almost all of the time.
I normally love rainstorms…, but this has really put a drag on my steps for today…
Fitbit just might have made me even more crazy than I already was…, but it might also have been doomed ever since I was the one who put on that little bracelet. 😛
I was a scorekeeper for a golf tournament today, and then I went to markets and festivals around town, giving me this Fitbit award.
I am totally proud.
I am becoming the person I want to be in the future, by being the person I want to be now.
And it feels good.
(Though, my legs are totally sore, and some of my other muscles, too.) 😛
