I can’t believe it either!
Here’s an abbreviated play-by-play of yesterday:
5 a.m. Up for gym
7 a.m. Breakfast with the kids (we had eggs and mini wheats!)
8 a.m. Kid 1 off to school. Play with kid 2 for about an hour until The Husband took him to pre-school
9 a.m. Make new recipe, photograph it for GreenLiteBites and then head to my office for some: writing – promoting – conference planning – emailing – updating – blogging (Sometimes I even wonder what it is I do all day.)
11 a.m. Realize I’ve been sitting for 2 hours and take a quick run around the block. (maybe half a mile, if that)
1 p.m. Lunch date at a Thai place (I love Thai!!) with a new developer who may be helping me redo all my sites. (They are in desperate need of repair and I just can’t do it alone anymore.)
3 p.m. Stuck at the pharmacy waiting for a prescription. (I didn’t tell you guys but I have a UTI and the first string of antibiotics didn’t work. I’m on script No. 2)
4:30 p.m. With Kid No. 2 get farm share, prep veggies, make dinner.
5:30 p.m. Dinner with the family (I’m really big on us sitting down together every night)
6:30 p.m. Hike with the kids (My last-ditch effort to up my step count for the day.)
7:30 p.m. Give kid No. 2 bath. Argue with kid No. 1 that he ALSO has to take a bath. (why do pre-adolescent boys not like to shower?)
8:30 p.m. Read to kid No. 1 with tired eyes, lay down down for a minute…
I was OUT! Like dead asleep in moments. The Husband came home from tennis around 9 (I think,) checked in on me and I incoherently swatted him away.
I slept all night too, something that hasn’t been happening for a long time now. I got up at 5 a.m. this morning to catch up on all the emails and such that I missed last night and now here I am.
If my calculations are correct, my total steps so far are 53,726. That’s just over half but I only have 3 days left! I’m going to have to average at least 16,000 steps every day to the end and I haven’t even had a 16,000 step day yet. It’s going to be tough, there’s no doubt about it!
How are you guys doing? What’s your total step count so far? From the social media updates, some of you are really killing it!
