Apparently they think we are all a bunch of lazy slobs and need to get off of our butts and moving a bit more.
I say we can solve this problem by working less hours a day, but nobody asked me.
In an effort to get the employes up and moving, the fitness center located on campus gave us pedometers and told us our goal was 10,000 steps a day.
At first I was shocked. 10,000?!?! That seems like a million! Which I know doesn't make any sense because 10,000 is definitely not a million, but that is just a glimpse into the mind of Megan. Its a crazy world in there.
So the first day I wore my pedometer I decided to live life as normal, without trying to get any steps, just to see how many I got.
I am proud (and frankly shocked) to say that I easily reached over 10,000 without every trying. Apparently I am an active girl.
I use the term 'active' loosely because some of those steps involved walking down the stairs to sneak a candy bar from the candy jar.
But 10,000 steps is 10,000 steps baby.
The next day I wore my pedometer proudly and AGAIN achieved over 10,000 steps.
I was on a roll!
Saturday came and I just knew I was going to break 11,000.
At the end of the day I had reached a little over 3,000.
I seem to remember something in the bible about a 'day of rest' and not having to achieve more than 3,000 steps in that day. Saturday was that day for me.
The next day after I had only achieved 3,000 steps my pants felt a little tighter.
I believe this is all just a mind game.
So I'm curious...
Has anybody worn a pedometer? How many steps do you take in a day??
