You wouldn't think that something so small could create such angst! The gurus say that you should walk 10000 steps a day in order to stay fit and to loose weight. Surely I do that. After all, I stand in front of a class all day, I walk around the room to see what the girls are up to.

On the first day of life with a pedometer I recorded 7622 steps. Not good, but not really that bad. On the second day there was only 2762 - surely a mistake! I must have reset it by accident! The third day was a little better - 4918 - I had to stop off on the way home for coffee and sweets for afternoon tea. As you can see, it is only lunchtime and I already have 3428. Maybe another walk to the coffee shop will help.

Space Girl doesn't have 53 year old knees and has far more will power than anyone that I know! Bet she can even resist chocolate. I admire her and could NEVER emulate her achievements even with a pedometer :-)

An hour on a horse with lots of trot and canter can make a real indent into that 10000, you feel so good about yourself that chocolate is the only option.

Must be a family trait! Chocolate is the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything!

Our pedometer sits in the package waiting for one of us to figure out how to set it. :-)
