I started the day at the gym. I walked during every call. I convinced The Husband to walk to lunch. I walked to pick up the 3-Year-Old at preschool. I walked to drop something off at my neighbor’s. I walked to the store. And I did laps around the soccer field during the game.

And yes… I am EXHAUSTED!

Total steps so far: 74,925

I think I’m going to make it! 2 days to go!

Updates please. I love seeing everyone’s progress!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    That’s awesome – I am hoping to have a day like that today – today is my “day 5” and yesterday I could barely manage 5,000 steps – I was just soo tired. So, hoping I got enough rest to push out a few great days – heading out for a run/walk now. I think (KNOW) you are going to make it!

    I also love my Fitbit…can’t live without it. But I notice that your progress readout is different from mine. I have the fitbit one…what device are you using? I had 22000 steps the other day and only 5000 yesterday. :(

    going out for a walk right now.
    Love this challenge!!!

    p.s. saw my cardiologist yesterday and she is thrilled with my progress.

    I still have 2 days but I’m over 75k!!! I’ve hurt my back so my step count today was only 11k. But I’ve had one 16k day this week & the rest were over 15k! Loving this challenge. Hoping I can run tomorrow to increase my count even higher.

    Woah!!! This is awesome! I returned my Force (boo!) but just got my Zip in today. I think it will serve me better since I”m always pushing, holding or doing something that the Force didn’t recognize. And with the Force i ended up doing some wacky things while exercising trying to get my hand to “count” (i.e. always swinging my arms while lunging/squatting etc.)! WAy to go you!
