It is now a week since I last saw Amazon and Kentucky in my rear view mirror. Gone are the work days where I logged up to 12 miles of walking each day.
I now find myself feeling very fit and trim. No more do I hold in my tummy to zip up my jeans. They are actually loose. Wanting to keep it that way I am taking the fitness challenge of 10,000 steps a day.
My pedometer of choice is the Omron HJ112 digital pocket pedometer. Each morning it goes in my pocket and calculates the number of steps I take each day.
Today I set out to explore the various trails and boardwalks around Edisto Island. I walked through a maritime forest, over saltwater marshes , and along a tidal river.
I logged 10,272 steps and experienced some wonderful sights.
My 10,000 steps a day won’t always be with a camera but will certainly keep me feeling fit and healthy.
