Good grief! What a day!

Normally I'm not a big fan of gyms. I would much rather get outdoors for exercise. Every now and then though, I run out of daylight so I finish up my steps on the treadmill. (Which was the case tonight.)

Ugggg, after a rough day at work I still need 3000 steps to make my daily goal and its really probably past what my bedtime should be, having to get up at 3:30 AM, but I'm too close not to make my goal.

Getting 10,000+ steps in by walking in the outdoors (especially in nature) is a breeze. You literally feel the stress melting away and find yourself smiling. Getting your 10,000+ steps completed in the gym (which is where I was tonight) feels like it takes 12,893 hours so ya gotta crank up the tunes and pretend you're anywhere else but there....

Got my steps in the other night, so as of today I am at day 63 of reaching my daily steps goal. Spent the morning at the dentist getting a cracked tooth fixed, so this afternoon will take a lot of walking to catch up today.
