Thanks to Katey
I had to read the pedometer manual this morning. I mean, I read it yesterday too, to set the pedometer. But I assumed stuff, because I read it the usual way I read manuals. Just the bold letters...lol
So at the bold Set the stride I read ... If you walk 5.5 meters in 10 steps then your stride is .55 cm. And I assumed that mine would be 50 cm.
I also had to set my weight. I also assumed that my weight is 91 (cos it was 91.3 on Monday).
I did not had to assume the time, I checked my clock. But Katey commented yesterday that her 3 km loop is only 4000. And Angelos always complains when we walk together because he says I walk too fast and have a long stride. Which counts for no romantic holding hands walks...hehe
So today I had to reset the pedometer. I had to look for the measuring tape, put a sign where I started, walk 10 steps, put another sign there, and then count the distance. 7.2 meters! Which makes my stride 72 cm and not 50!
Then I had to call Angelos. And explain why he HAD to tell me where he has hidden the scales. I persuaded him. Then I laughed with his creativity! He has hidden the scales inside the basket with his dirty gym clothes. It's his turn to do the laundry this week and he was sure I would not peak into his dirty socks!
Another surprise. Super pleasant one too! The scales gave me gorgeous number my friends! 88.6!!! This is 2.7 kilos LESS than Monday!!! Which means I most probably lost something last week too, and Monday's 91.3 was bloatbloatbloat!
So after all this I rushed to the shower, put on my clothes, and hit the road. I walked to work!
Now, there is something else than needs reset I think. Our car's spedometer! Because I had calculated some distances with it and they seem to be a lot less calculated through the pedometer! Which is good, cos that means that our car has run less km than the spedometer says, and bad cos I have been walking smaller distances than I thought!
Anywa, as per my pedometer, the route from home to work is 5.3 km. And it took me 63 minutes during which I walked 7,116 aerobic steps and 245 plain steps, a total of 7361 steps! So I guess if I take a 30 minute walk after work, I will be all set for the day!!!
I know I am making you sick and tired of my pedometer, but its so new and fun to me, that I am really really finding so hard to sit in my office and work. All I want to do is make this number of steps bigger and bigger!!!!
Tonight I am seeing my two bestest girlfriends! We met when we were 18, on the orientation day in college, and have been extremely close ever since. We still call each other from 2 to 10 times a day after 18 years. So the one who is hosting the gathering today called me and asked me what I want to eat for dinner. And I screamed MEAAAAAAT!!!!!!! hehehe
Actually my fish was deliscious yesterday, it was the first fishy meal I really enjoyed very very much!
Right, gotta go and get some more work done! Have a great Friday girlies!!!
