Irritating Revelations

Before Pennsic, Bob bought me a pedometer.  For years I've wondered what kind of distance I was clocking.  So of course, it was so hot and humid that I hardly moved all war, and we never did our usual camp walk.  That's not the irritating part.

The irritating part is that yesterday I clocked my highest number of steps/milage since he got it for me.  Do you know what I was doing yesterday?  Walking back and forth to the washing machine.  I clocked more steps doing post-Pennsic laundry than I did on any one day at Pennsic itself.

That's really terribly wrong.

Annoying, but not surprising
One of my highest mileage days was when I spent a few hours cleaning the basement and bringing some loads of trash out to the dumpster (less than 50 feet from my front door). How sad is that?

Well, at least I'm not alone. It tells you something about housework, doesn't it?

Irritating Revelations
Yeeegads.... this turned on a lightbulb for me. I finally understand why flylady.net is constantly harping on cleaning a room with boxes at your side (throw away, give away, put away) instead of putting away an armload at a time!

Except that the *point* is that I'm supposed to be taking more steps - aiming for 10,000/day to stay healthy. So far today: 704.
