Miracle #1 for today: I dug out my pedometer before work (I don't recall when I wore it last)
Miracle #2: I actually found the extra battery I had for it.
Miracle #3: I remembered how to set it without instructions.
Miracle #4: I put it on.
Miracle #5: I packed my lunch (an Indian Pea & paneer boxed microwaveable dinner, grape tomatoes, a white nectarine, and muscadines for a snack)
Miracle #6: I walked at lunch with a co-worker! It was a beautiful fall day and I discovered this lovely neighborhood around the corner from my office that I didn't even know existed.
Miracle #7: I thought my co-worker walked a bit slow. (Well, at least at first! ;) )
Miracle #8: I left work early to use my free trial at a gym near my house for a water aerobics class.
Miracle #9: I was a few minutes late and still joined the class.
Miracle #10: Even though I didn't get home until 7:20, I made dinner (hubby usually cooks for us, but I've been on a roll the last week or so.) [I stir fried chicken tenders with green beans, sugar snap peas, & some broccoli and we tried delicata squash--really nice].
Miracle #11: For my first day with pedometer, I logged 8,494 steps; 3991 aerobic steps (34 min); 1.74 miles, and burned 361 calories. (Big reality check: when I lived in Boston and took the train to work, I logged about 3400 steps by the time I got to work; this AM driving to work it was about 1/3 of that!)
