Resolution Days, Day3, Feet

3. Get a pedometer and shoot for 10,000 steps.

This is the easy one... well, the pedometer part. I got one from Amazon, and it came yesterday... I have to say that this thing is pretty cool... much smaller than the last pedometer I had, and the neat thing is that it will register in your pocket or purse or whatever, doesn't have to be clipped to your waist. So we'll see, first, what my average daily walking is, and then I guess we'll see how hard it would be to make 10,000 steps, which is the real goal.

I'm not entirely sure how dead serious I am about this... I mean, I kind of hate walking as a form of exercise... but I'm thinking that if I just try to go for upping my number of steps, then I have some incentive to do the little things like park farther away and take the stairs and so on.

How did it go at the docter's?

Thanks for asking! I got a prescription for the antidepressant that my psychiatrist sister recommended, but the catch is that of course it turns out to be something that has to be pre-approved by insurance, so I'm just waiting...
