After an unsuccessful LAZY Friday, and with only 6,447 steps logged, my mission for Day 5 was simple, make up those steps, I had decided when I started this challenge that the weekends were going to be my make up days, any steps not logged during the work week would have to be made up on the weekends, when I had the extra time to put in the steps. Saturday was an uneventful day, except I exercised for what felt like all day, each time I needed something, needed to go somewhere, I did it myself, unusual for me because I normally split the errands with my husband. It started out with an hour of piloxing (which is a combo of pilates, dance and boxing, in bare feet), then my weight training class for another hour, shopping (which is usual Saturday activity), food shopping, 2 mile walk with my faithful sidekicks, Mimi and Howie and finally, laundry and cleaning up around the house.

TOTAL STEPS: 12,575.
Steps left to make up for the other days, 1,765. Today, just like yesterday, I will walk 11,765 and then tomorrow is the last day in the first week of this challenge. Let's get to steppin.
