Forced to walk

Several people have been asking me how I have been able to find the time to log so many steps. Since mid-November, I have been on a medication where nausea is one side effect and walking is one of the few ways I've found to get any kind of relief. So I end up walking a lot whether I feel like it or not. Right now, I am at work trying to get some stuff done and feel bad. So whether I want to or not, whether I have time or not, I'm going to go for a walk. I have also discovered that fairly small, healthy meals help a lot so this is getting me to my weight loss goals. 35 lbs so far!

Chris Lott mentioned in his blog that I must be pacing the halls just to get in steps. In reality, I do often walk up and down the halls or a quick loop around west ridge or down to lower campus but it isn't to get in steps, it's to feel well enough to get through the rest of the day.
