After experiencing such success on day 2, my motivation was high, I climbed the stairs and stayed active on my feet as much as I could but when I got home and realized I was right around 6500 steps, how could I make the 10,000 mark with less than 4 hours left in the day. Thursday nights I work at the gym as a fitness instructor for a weight training class, great for the muscles not for my steps. I stayed active until I had to go to the gym, in 45 minutes, by stepping in place while watching Revenge. Then, when stepping wasn't enough I started a little jog, luckily no one was home to watch me make an idiot out of myself. I was ahead of the game, at 8,750 steps down. I got to the gym and filled my faithful participants in on my progress, I was at 8,916. After class i looked down at my pedometer, 786, wait I was at 8,916 just an hour ago what just happened? After 2 days of the challenge, my freebie stepper was actin a fool. HELP, i got home, 125 steps, are you freaking kidding me, stupid freebie. LUCKILY, I kept checking my stepper at what seemed like a little guardian angel at work because I added the totals together after a little more time on my feet.....so the results are inconclusive.

Steps taken, that I can actually account for: 10,176
Miles: UNDETERMINED
Calories: Undetermined.

Here's to DAY 4 and shopping for a new pedometer, if you know a good one, fill me in, this can not happen again.

Back to the Gym
The steak was 400g tasty and juicy but I still had to force feed the meal. Now as I sit my pulse is racing trying to digest it. A short walk may be in order to aid the process.

where do I start?
Probably the best advice that I can give you is to find something that you like (even if it is a little) and start out slow with it. If you overdo it you will probably be discouraged. It could also help ...
