Steps and More Steps -- Tracking the Seven-Day Number

Today was all about the STEPS. I did the treadmill this morning before leaving for work. The I was getting steps all day long. Walking to Starbucks. Walking around the office. Doing the treadmill at lunch (Marilyn and I went home for lunch). Walking with Rich to get a soda. More walking around the office. Then walking here at home (while Marilyn did the treadmill).

Marilyn and I are dedicated. Yes, we're VERY BUSY at work. But we're focused like crazy on our exercise, too.

So cool! I got 72,081 steps for seven days, and Marilyn got 70,955. That's Marilyn's first 70,000 for a seven day period. (And can you believe it's my second time?)

Fitbit Update: Marilyn did 15,039 steps today. I did 12,740 steps. Yeah, more than 10,000 seems crazy, but we've been going for the seven-day thing, so we have some catching up to do.

Just for the heck of it, here are my past seven days:
Today: 12,740
Wed: 13,433
Tue: 11,084
Mon: 10,201
Sun: 6,257
Sat: 7,027
Fri: 11,339

Frankly, it's difficult getting the exact seven-day numbers. Everything changes at midnight, and there's no record day to day of the seven-day. (Nearing midnight, Marilyn was almost exactly 71,000 steps for the seven-day.) You might notice my reported steps are off from the above list. But the daily number is exactly what you have at midnight. And I'm usually reporting an earlier number when I blog.

Marilyn had numerous important meetings today. I was working on a header banner for the new eNewsletter. Plus a page for the How To website (Rich's media training). I need to do some work for the office when I finish blogging. Then do the garbage and recycling. Tomorrow I'm home for the plumber. I have a ton to do, including coloring my hair, cleaning out under the sink (for the plumber) and a bunch of work-related things.

I MUST get an email off to Donn about his work tomorrow!

THREE new people are joining the Staff next week. I'll be training two on Monday, and the third on Tuesday. Donn needs to be sure we're 100% ready to go, equipment-wise.

At some point I should discuss my current issues with my blood sugar. I'm having a lot of LOWS. I'm sure it's all the exercise. Anyway, more later.

I'll have to report on Jim Jim and Donn tomorrow! I just have to get my work done right away -- and then the garbage and recycling! So busy...
