Day 30

I haven't calibrated the pedometer for distance yet, so I've been tracking steps. Average stay-around-the-house days are about 3,300; days when I run errands are between 5,000 and 6,000 steps. (And I typed "words" first instead of "steps." Talk about dreaming!)

I was going to set a goal for myself for December of 6,000 steps a day -- a bit more than my max, but doable, without too much stress, and because I do have so many stay at home days, a definite net increase in activity. My bout with bronchitis is making that take a back seat -- I might aim to start around December 15, but we'll see how I'm feeling.

Sometime this week, I'll total active vs. passive days and post my best guess for mileage so far.

I hope you're getting back to activity by now -- that was a nasty illness.

I think by the end of this week (assuming the girl's not sick again!), I'll be heading out to do some actual walking again.
