This Week’s Progress …

Every day that I was scheduled to be in the office this week was wall to wall meetings.  Two of the days even had meetings scheduled at lunch time!  In response, I ramped up my morning walk a little, and made sure I got downstairs to walk when I could during the late morning or early afternoon.  On Friday I was off and walked on the treadmill in the morning, and then some during the day while out running errands.

This coming week I will only be in the office one day.  Monday is a holiday and then on Wednesday I’m flying out to Vegas to meet my sisters.  I’m hoping for some good walking while I’m there.  It’s my first trip there and I’m a little overwhelmed with the wealth of activities and what to wear!

Wednesday’s Words to Walk By …

This Week’s Progress Part 2…

So I got the chart working again.  See the post below this one.  But then I couldn’t type around the chart.  Oh well.  More than one way to skin a cat …

It was a busy week.  The days I was in the office were packed with meetings and it was hard to get steps in while sitting in conference rooms.  I teleworked on Wednesday and Friday.  The weather was crazy.  It was actually hot on Wednesday, and then freezing cold on Friday.

I know next week I have 2 days with 12:30 meetings. So I think I’m going to take a preemptive strike and walk an extra lap in the morning.  Then if I miss a lunch hour walk, or only get a short walk at lunch I’ll be ok.  I also don’t have anything planned on Tuesday and Thursday, so if I need to, I can walk in the evening.

Today I was going to a Fiber Festival in Ocean City with some friends.  I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a day of lots of steps or a day with few.  I did know that it meant several hours in the car each way.  I got up early and went for a walk to get a base of steps.  And I’m glad I did.  Even though we were in a convention center, I didn’t add that many steps during the day.

This Week’s Progress …

Another typical week.  Monday was a little slow, I was teleworking and it was supposed to be slippery in the early morning hours, so instead of driving to the Y to walk on the treadmill, I paced the house until I had about 7000 steps.  I added a longer walk at lunch to make up the steps.  I was off on Friday, and slept in late.  I walked my neighborhood to get my walk in once I woke up.  Other than that, a typical week.

A typical week, I teleworked 2 days, and so did the treadmill before work and took a lunch time walk.  Other days I walked in the morning and at lunch.  Nothing out of the ordinary all week, and it shows in the numbers.

This Week’s Progress …

A holiday on Monday and a day off on Friday made this week’s totals on the higher side.  Nice!  You can see with Monday that I got my normal morning long walk in and then took a trip around the mall.  The weather is holding, so I got some outdoor walking in for the morning portion of my walks.  Today was back to my Saturday treadmill and yoga routine, the first week since the New Year.
