I guess pottering about the garden does not necessarily mean you get your steps up to 10,000. I have been out in the yard more often lately and during the week I managed to clock 53,746 steps. Spring has sprung and I have been pulling weeds, cleaning up after winter, cutting back frost damaged plants and although it feels good with the sun on my back it is not enough. But I thought the photo of the daffies was appropriate anyway. Don’t they look happy? One of the things I love about gardening in Canberra is that ou can grow bulbs and spring when it arrives is wonderful.
I am constantly amazed at how much activity you need to do to hit that magic figure of 10,000. I think this challenge is doing good as it does make me aware of the amount of activity I am doing or not doing in my day.

Oh, what a dork I am! I wondered how people were getting such high step counts. I was only wearing the pedometer when I was *exercise* walking! Duh! =)
