At work we get healthy points for completing challenges. Once you earn 500 points, you get a shirt.
There was a step challenge that ran from January 6 until March 29. You needed to walk 50K steps in 7 days (Monday to Sunday) to earn 15 points per week. And I did it y’all!! I was obsessed!!! Had my iPhone set to track for me automatically. Even during Spring Break and first of the “work from home” weeks, I stayed the course. Religiously!!!!!
Now that the challenge is over, I am seriously slacking. I needed 7200 steps a day to make my goal. I am tracking about 1/2 that with only one day at about 6000. The steps have nowhere to go anyway. Who cares?
Me!!! I do!!! I swear!!!!
Of course I am not carrying my phone around 24/7 anymore either. Maybe things are not that bad? Maybe I am still getting 50K steps in a week?
Here’s our silly convo as we walked around our place:
Me: “Hey, I don’t have my phone so these steps don’t really count”
B laughing: “They still count. Or are these “fake” as opposed to “real” steps?”
Me: “If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around to hear it does it still make a sound?”
B: “Yes. I mean no. I mean who knows? We’re not there to hear it. Okay, no. Final answer. And steps are not trees”
I need another carrot y’all. One that will stick around. Get it?? … A carrot and stick? … walking into a bar …
What? Funny? Not funny? Okay I won’t quit my work from home day job.
As always, more to come.
