I know it is only day three, but I feel good about keeping the positive habits I created in 2012 by doing the 1000 mile challenge. I still behave as though I have the pedometer clipped to my waist.
I went to the grocery store yesterday and drove to my favorite far away parking spot. Someone in a mini cooper slipped in to 'my' spot and I remembered my statement about not fighting for the close spaces! Oh well, I'll have to fight for the far ones.
Inside, I lapped the store several times. Most on purpose, but once because I forgot something. Later in the day, I took my mother to the doctor. Parking is an a garage. There is a bit of a walk to the elevator, I don't park far away for her sake. Inside the building there is another little walk to the office. As we were leaving, I thought I'd had a pretty good walking day and reached for the pedometer to check. It wasn't there.
I still walk around in the house taking the long way or making more trips than really needed to move laundry, etc. I'm going to keep those habits. I like them. I also like not being burdened by guilt or frustration when the situation does not allow for me to get the maximum number of steps like when another car got the parking spot I wanted. All in all, I think this is a good thing.
