5590 steps yesterday.  I was doing great for the first part of the day but I kind of pooped out in the afternoon.  Woke up with a bit of a sore throat this morning.  Hope I am not coming down with something.
Yeah Barbara, I think goals are good but probably need to be based more on individual ability rather than some arbitrary number.  OTOH, I do feel better when I can get closer to 10K if I can.  My Garmin tracker is set to automatically calculate my goal each day based on my past history.  I'm not sure exactly how it is calculated but it seems to take an average of the past daily steps and adding a bit to that.  That seems to work well.

Congrats. Well done bsg. I've been skipping gym for a day here and there, but I do try and make it whenever I can.

7101 steps yesterday.  Well, I had three days in a row over 9K and that is good but yesterday it was a bit on the cool side and very windy.  I felt good but just don't do well in the house.

7787 steps yesterday.  I have been bad about posting for the last few days but i have been over 7K the last 4 days.  I think as the days get longer and warmer i will be able to increase the count.

8641 steps yesterday.  I was able to make 500 steps or more for 11 hours.  If I was getting 1K for those hours I would easily get 10K and some times I do.

Weekends are off-days for me so no gymming, but today I plan to do a lot of cleaning at home, which in itself is a lot of exercise.

8856 steps yesterday.  It's going to be colder and very windy for the next two days so I probably will be down on my steps.
