Yes, it’s true and on Thursday, May 22nd I stepped my 1,000,000th step!!  It took me 142 days from start to end of my Mission to a Million Steps challenge started on January 1st! 

What’s pretty cool is back on May 5th, during week 18, I estimated that I would complete my 1,000,000 step on May 22nd and 75 days ahead of my original estimation I made on January 1st.  I initially guessed I would complete my challenge on July 19th after 200 days, I cannot believe I did it in only 142 days!  YAY!

Here’s a look at my 21st week of the challenge:

So now what?  I’ve hit my 1 millionth step, now what?  I’m already thinking and planning another challenge for myself sometime soon.  However, I’m going to take a bit of time off from posting weekly and checking in.  May this summer, maybe this fall, only time will tell.  In the meantime, I plan on continuing to post on Monday’s, they just won’t be Mission to a Million Steps related!  But don’t worry I have plenty of back blog posts to share!  This will give me a chance to play catch-up!

I still plan on wearing my FitBit and “racing” my friends, do you want to try to out-step me and have a FitBit? Feel free to add me as a friend on FitBit. Please leave me a comment letting me know you are sending me an invite so I know who you are.  Otherwise, I will see you soon!
