Playing a Video Game and getting steps

“Do not mock the serious Pokemon Hunters!” exclaimed my husband.   After reading a facebook post from a friend that thinks we’re funny.  Love her!

We just got back from bagging 28 Pokemon.  Yes, you read that correctly!


I had just gotten home after both going to work and  a Zumba class (thanks Eliza for the 4000 steps to my counter, I was now at 8,883 steps for the day) and my husband excitedly told me about this new ‘game’.

Step 1 – currently the game isn’t available in Canada, that is just a temporary roadblock.  We found a great (reputable) site and downloaded the ‘game’.  Then we were off on the hunt.

Step 2 – Coffee/tea, we needed to make a pitt-stop to fuel up.

Step 3 – hunt the elusive Pokemon.  We started by driving around our neighbourhood, but the Pokemon were popping up too fast and as we drove I couldn’t capture them.

Sadly, not a Pokemon, but pretty neat site to see on our walk.

So we parked the car and started walking … and capturing Pokemon …. and walking ….. and, well you get the picture.  When we finished, about 15 minutes ago, my step count was over 12,000 steps.  YAY!

I also took a small video of one of our captures, check it out here.
