Tag: 10000 steps

September Challenge

I am not sure if I will have a challenge each month like Matt Cutts, but I will have some challenges when I feel like it. So after August’s challenge, I was thinking what I could do next? After thinking I could give up Facebook, I thought maybe not. I don’t use it that much anymore but it is a nice tool to share things with family and friends.

pedometer – week in Spain

Thursday last week, another trip around a town in Spain: 13,956 steps. Friday last week, another trip around a town and the first night of the fiesta: 12,582 steps. Saturday, 12,243 and Sunday only 8,896 steps – maybe too long of a siesta 🙂 It picked up again the next day and even yesterday where I mostly travelled on the plane, I got over 10,000 steps, which is the goal.

Now, all I have to change is eating too much, e.g. 10,000 steps do not burn 10,000 calories 😉 I keep you posted. Volker
