As of last night, I have 556 miles in for the year. I'll have to step it up a bit to get in 1000 miles for the year. I'll get pretty darn close even if I don't make it. Obviously, my hiatus included fewer steps. And, I know working from home will create a challenge with getting the steps in. I know myself well enough to know that I can get quite focused for extended periods of time. I'm considering bringing my kitchen timer in to my office. I'll set it for intervals and when it sounds, I will have to take a walk. I'm going to try it on my own for a day or two first.
This morning I got up and took a short walk outside. It was steamy already this morning. In keeping with my office tradition, every time I go to the bathroom, I'll walk around my house - literally outside unless it is raining. I'll resume my evening walks as well. If that doesn't work, I'll get the kitchen timer.
I'm beginning to realize that with a more flexible schedule, most days will be different. Even though that is what I want, I will have to figure some ways to adapt so that I still accomplish my mileage goal. I can and I will.
Thanks for the sweet comments welcoming me back and expressing concern for 65MD. Surgery is scheduled for 8:30 am and we live in the central time zone. We both appreciate your prayers.
