Top 2 Tuesday... Strange Addictions

So I am just as guilty as y'all are of watching the show strange addictions. [based off of some twitter conversations I had/read]

Although mine aren't quiet as strange as eating comet, toilet paper, sleeping with a hair dryer... ect.. you get the picture.. i do have a few that might be a little strange to people!

I thought this was a perfect opportunity to air out all of my dirty laundry and share with y'all some of my strange addictions....

1. I have to get to 7,000 steps a day on my pedometer.

We have a program through the company I work for has a program through Virgin Health Miles, and its a wellness program. The goal is to reach 7,000+ steps a day. The days I don't make it to the gym, or that I'm not due for a 2+ mile run I find myself running in place in my basement trying to get to 7,000 by the end of the day... or i find myself stepping in place as i brush my teeth at night if I'm only a few hundred steps away.

My friend and I joke around as if the world is going to end if we don't make it to our goal each day!

[clearly i need to make it to the gym... i'm only at 1,833 so far today!.. give me a little bit of a break - its snowing out and I don't want to go over to the hospital unless i absolutely HAVE to!]

2. I can't go to sleep at night without reading all of my facebook updates... and more recently tweets. I feel like I need to be caught up with the world before I fall asleep.

Now head on over to Taylor's blog and link up with your strange addictions!

I want a pedometer now!! Do you just wear it on your dress pants or work attire?

And I suppose my strange addiction would be clearing my FB and Twitter feeds each night too! I also like to play a game of color soduko on my iPod before bed too. Greg hates that, haha! ;-)

Wow! That is awsome!

I don't think I have ever used a pedometer before! Now that I'm on twitter, I feel the need to have to be caught up on that before facebook now!

I also want a pedometer! I think it would be a healthy investment, haha.

I don't think it's strange that you want to get to 7,000 steps. I think it's great! Go you :)

I would be worried all day about meeting the 7000 steps a day! I don't know how you do it girl!
