Becoming a Meander-thal

By the time I leave work I check my pedometer. I make sure I see more than 5 miles a day. It hasn't been a problem since I work in a place with a huge campus of 5 buildings. I park far away, I enter the wrong door, I take the long way to the bathroom. I walk to the next building for lunch and try to get 2 miles after lunch before the afternoon meetings. If by the end of the day I need to pull in a mile, I walk the "loop road" which is 1.5 miles. It all adds up. I walk slow because of the pain mentioned in previous posts... but I do walk about 2.5 miles/hour. The 15 minutes here, 10 minutes there and 40-60 minutes at lunch all add up at the end of the day. Therefore, I've decided that I am now a meander-thal, since I take meandering paths to get my daily activities done.

Funny though, my knuckles no longer drag.

A new low!

Alright, walking it off seems to be working. I am walking at least 5 miles a day now and maintaining a healthy balance on the intake. Even through a vacation I was still able to maintain my healthy choices and stay within target. As a result, I got on the scale this morning and saw 238.5 lbs. The first time in years I've seen below 240! My double XL's are starting to be too large even.

Gotta keep moving... catch you all later.
