Wow, I cannot believe I’m approaching 900,000 steps and expect to hit it next week! The finish is within my reach! Back on March 23rd I was on pace to hit my 1,000,000th step on June 1st, which was 49 days ahead of my original date I anticipated I’d finish! As of today, I’ll finish in 18 days which will be Thursday, May 22nd or 75 days ahead of my original estimation!
Yep, I’m super excited to be so close to hitting my 1,000,000th step and completing this challenge! Bring on May 22nd….or just maybe I can complete it earlier….only time will tell!
Last week’s numbers were pretty disappointing, but I found week 18 to be a lot better. Once again I got my average steps back up to 8,000 which I was ecstatic about! Below is what week 18 looked like for me:

How does Mission to a Million Steps work? Every Monday I will post the number of steps I stepped from the previous week (Monday-Sunday) on my blog. I have designed a goal thermometer that I will change each week on my blog to show my progress. You will also be able to quickly see an update on a permanent thermometer on my sidebar. I’m excited to see how long it will take me to walk 1,000,000 steps!
