This challenge is organised by Felicia over at the Geeky Blogger's Book Blog.
Well this week I bought a fitbit and started using it on the 1st. Interesting, certainly is an incentive to walk.
Saturday: 30 min walk
Sunday: 30 min walk
Monday: 30 min walk and 10 000 steps in the day
Tuesday 35 min walk and 7470 steps in the day
Wednesday 35 min walk and 8600 steps in the day
Thursday: rest day and 6480 steps in the day
Friday: rest day and 4380 steps in the day
I find I do a reasonable amount of walking during the day at work, except like on Tuesday when I was sitting in one place testing students on reading levels. Wednesday I was travelling in a car so that cut down on walking.
I have now found a new love for being on playground yard duty - I can get in up to a 1000 steps while circling! It's the part of my work I dislike - now it has gone up the ladder!
So what is now at the bottom of the ladder - well kids telling tales I guess! Today " So and so said the i word", from a couple of 6 yr old girls. Me: "Er what is the i word?" Them - glances at each other, unsure whether to tell me! - "You know, idiot!"
Me - "Thank you for sharing", (thinking - thank goodness, five more minutes and I can escape to the staffroom.)
While I walk I am still listening to River Road by J A Krentz, but am on the home straight with the book.
