Million Mile Month: Week 3

With three weeks completed on this pedometer geek’s goal of 100 miles in the Million Mile Month, over 86 miles have been completed. How many miles the community has completed, whether the goal of a million miles will be met in the next week, that remains to be seen. Just as it remains to be seen whether the last 14 miles will be completed.

This pedometer geek is hopeful that both the personal goal and the community goal will be met (and even exceeded). Of course, the more individuals who join even at this late date will help push those numbers higher. Check out millionmilemonth or http://www.healthcode.org if interested.

Now to get back to putting steps on the Fitbit.

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    You can do it! Our insurance/workplace has provided me with another contest – just for this week –
    10,000 steps a day (M – F only). For me that’s only about 4 miles for the five days that would be about 20 miles. But I plan on my average of 15,000 which is about 6.50 miles.
    And I may just get more by mowing and gardening and walking around the block now that spring seems to be here.

    As for the Simple Fit board. I didn’t pay the postage and handling because our local hardware store had it in stock a couple of years ago when my hubby got it for me. I think it helps to use even the 1 lb weights, though I also have 3 lb weights (though I haven’t used them in about a month). Kind of like you when you use your machine and read at the same time. I watch TV or listen to music. And the time just melts away. It does come with a video (which I didn’t even open until after a year or so… (I’m bad). Most of the work outs are only 20 minutes and some are really work outs! Having you work different muscle groups, getting on and off the board. That’s why I also picked up beginner Yoga and Tai Chi to balance out and alternate my workouts. Though I haven’t done any of them in a while either – being out of town and all… 🙂

    • Not only can I do it, I have done it. Now, with five days to go, I am adding to the total. It wasn’t easy as I am working in an office for the month and walking around is a stretch (but the regular staff have gotten used to my pacing every hour when I am not actively doing the job for which I was hired). On the other hand, the weather is getting better and it is easier getting out and walking (as you indicated).

      I wish you all the best on your own challenge. I KNOW you will do it (the 15,000 steps). You always do. You are motivated, and your motivation motivates me, too.

      Thanks for the heads-up on the Simple Fit board. I don’t know whether I will buy one or not, but at least I know what to expect.

      Enjoy the great weather, JP. 🙂
