I love summer! But I’ve been so busy, I don’t think I’ve had time to stop and rest. Wait… I did go to the beach for a few hours on Wednesday! What I’m finding about summer is that it’s fairly easy to hit my daily step goal of 10,000 steps; however, I’m not doing my long/more intense walks like I did during the school/work year. I think that it’s okay because, generally, I’m moving a lot. I’m also still eating a lot. However, I did lose almost 2 of the “vacation pounds” my first full week back home.
Friday: 51 minutes walking, 17,291 steps/day (afternoon at the fair!)
Saturday: 55 minutes walking, 11,990 steps/day
Sunday: 32 minutes walking, 12,144 steps/day
Monday: 49 minutes walking, 11,275 steps/day
Tuesday: 43 minutes walking, 13,179 steps/day
Wednesday: 37 minutes elliptical, 15,963 steps/day
Thursday: 55 minutes BodyFlow, 32 minutes walking, 11,035 steps/day
* After a comment about my timed walking and the number of steps I record, I realized it might be confusing. I track two different goals. The first goal is a timed duration of exercise – moving with the intent to raise my heart rate and get in some cardiovascular work. This is what I’m mean when I say “45 minutes walking.” The second goal is total daily steps. This is from my Fitbit, which measures all steps from 12:00AM – 11:59PM, exercise included. I hope that clarifies my movement data.
