Yesterday was a bit of a challenge because it was too cold outside to take baby out for a walk. I wasn’t really feeling like getting on the treadmill, so I decided to get my 10,000 steps in any way that I could.
First, I dusted, swept, Swiffered, and vacuumed the main level of the house. You can earn quite a few steps by cleaning and doing things around the house. It made me feel good to get all of that accomplished and get steps at the same time.
After that, I looked up a Leslie Sansone workout. Lots of people have recommended her walking workouts but this was the first time I tried one out. I got through 20 minutes of it before baby girl woke up from her nap. I earned 2,000 steps doing that!
The picture is so dark because I close all of the shades when I work out. lol
I did as much “house walking” as possible and I did a lot of walking/jogging in place. It all really adds up! I think if I started walking/jogging in place throughout the day that it would help me meet my step goal a lot faster. I was breaking out a sweat from doing that—it’s actually a good way to get some activity in the day!
And I met my step goal again!
Jessica is still beating me in our step challenge! I am working my butt off to move more but apparently she is working harder! I’m not giving up though.
I have been trying to convince hubby that he needs a Fitbit too so that we can compete and last night he said to go ahead and get one and that it would be fun to compete. I am planning on running some errands today so will probably get that for him today! I think we should have a pretty fierce competition most days because his new work position is primarily an office job and not as much physical labor. It will be fun!
I ended the day yesterday with 1 Points+ left over simply because what am I going to eat for 1 point? With all of my extra “activity” yesterday, I earned 9 Activity Points since my Fitbit is synced with Weight Watchers.
How was your Tuesday?
