So, it never occurred to me that clipping my pedometer to my jeans pocket instead of my belt would make that much of a difference on what it picked up on during the day. I was SO wrong.
I clipped it to the top of my pocket thinking it would be safer (I never trust the clip and I’ve been paranoid about losing my pedometer wearing it on my belt loop) and went along about my happy day. It wasn’t until early evening that I looked down and pressed the button to see my count that I noticed what a terrible mistake I’d made.
So, even though I know I performed several THOUSAND more steps than the pedometer picked up on at its lower body level, I can’t even guesstimate how far off it was, so I’m just going to report what the pedometer read at the end of the day and take my lumps with it — meaning I’ve got to do far more steps in Days 6 & 7 to make up for the unrecorded steps in Day 5 and still meet the #100kSteps Challenge on time.
Stupid technology. Stupid pocket. Stupid Gracie.
