Bloggers Beads Reminder
I will keep this open for another couple of weeks and then I will draw a name from all the people that have sent me a bead and send the winner a little something I have made. I do hope that I receive enough beads to make my 'Bloggers Beads Necklace'!
Apart from my goal of making 'the' necklace with the help of my blogging friends I have another goal that I wish to achieve this year. I want to improve my level of fitness. I decided that I will do this by walking more.
After reading about the merits of using a pedometer (counts the number of steps walked each day) I decided to buy one. I read that the average person does between 3,000-4,000 steps each day. Health professionals advise to walk 10,000 steps each day to maintain fitness and 12,000 steps to lose weight.
I walked to the vineyard and back today and this evening my pedometer reads 15,687 steps. No wonder I am tired!
