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.

Estimated Calories
I've read in several different places that 1lb of fat equals 3,500 calories. If you want to add one pound in a week then add 500 calories above your exercise amount per day.

suitable measuring
Yes, that is true, but for some interesting reading, google "Why the scales lie" and learn the myths and truths about what the scale is really telling you.
