The wellness director at work has come up with a new idea to help keep us fit - walk 10,000 steps a day. This is a 12-week challenge; we are finishing week five today.
It has been a challenge for me to get that many steps in a day. I have had to work the switchboard at my job which leaves me very little time to step away from my desk. And then it has been beastly hot and humid in our area all summer long. I tried walking at lunch one day; but with temps in the 90's, I didn't feel well the rest of the day. Thank God for air conditioning and Leslie Sansone. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be back at my desk which will require me to walk farther to other departments, the copier, and the fax machine.
My goal has been to talk at least 10,000 a day; and I've been able to do it. Yesterday, I even logged 18,0002; but then it's easier on the weekends to commit to this. There are a few people who work in our factory that are logging 20,000+ steps a day as their jobs require them to literally be on their feet most of the workday. I don't expect to top them!
So after working all day and the extra exercise I'm doing, I have had little time in the sewing room. But stay tuned, I will have pictures soon of some quilts I've been finishing including a graduation quilt for a friend who went back to college, the 2 1/2" strip swap project my quilt group is working on, plus the watermelon quilt that was on the cover of Fons & Porter recently.
