no hunter boots for me and new challenge!

Yesterday was Day 19 of my 10,000 steps a day challenge where I challenged myself to walk 10,000 steps a day for 21 consecutive days to earn the right to buy myself a pair of Hunter boots. You can read about my pledge here

So far I should have walked 190,000 steps but have only walked 163,748 steps. I am 26,252 steps behind schedule. So this means that I would need to walk 23,126 steps a day for the next 2 days and there is no way that I will  accomplish it! Therefore, challenged FAILED and NO Hunter boots for me!!!  I am blaming this failure on a number of things but my number one reason is the weather! This winter has been brutal.

With this being said, I am challenging myself once again to walk an average of 10,000 steps a day for the next 21 days starting Saturday, March 22nd. And my reward will be a pair of Hunter Boots!

Do you give yourself rewards for accomplishing stuff??


  1. I do reward my accomplishments. You'll get it next time!

  2. I totally know how you feel about the weather affecting your steps. Mine are way down and it is makes me sad. I have been trying to put a little more effort in since the weather has been a bit better. I need to be more consistent too and stop making excuses. You'll get them this next time around!

  3. At least today is the first day of spring so hopefully the weather will warm up and you'll have nicer days to go outside and walk!

  4. Get it, girl!
    Do you have access to a treadmill? Sometimes I just walk on the treadmill while catching up with my soaps on YouTube, heh heh.

  5. It's like you read my mind I'm all about accomplishment = reward and I'm in the middle of writing a post about it! Great minds huh! You weren't too far off with the steps though so you can definitely do the next 21 days!

  6. Good for you for sticking with it and giving it another go!!!!! The boots are worth it. ;)
