Calculating the kilometres I've walked since baby arrived

I've often pondered and wondered how many kilometres (can't work in miles) I've walked pushing my daughter in her Bugaboo Bee since she was born in April 2010.  

I only really started walking to and from town in May 2010 roughly 4 days per week.  That's an average but some weeks its more, some it's less.  It all depends on whether I get cabin fever or not or if it is gorgeous outside or sub zero!!!

Here are the rough stats for 2010

Distance to town and back home: 7km

Days between 1 May and 31 December 2010: 244
(I got this figure from ConvertUnits.com . A fab site for when you are bored and wanting to know random things like this!)

Subtract 35 days and 35 weekends (105 days): 139 days 

Subtract roughly 20 days in South Africa for holiday: 119

End result for 2010: 119 days x 7 km = 833 km walked

These are the rough stats for 2011 (pre office move)

Distance to work (via nursery) and back home, bearing in mind this was only for 3 days week until May when we moved to offices: 6km 

Days between 1 January and 30 May: 149 days

Subtract 42 days not walked and 21 weekends (84 days): 65 days

End result for Jan to May 2010: 65 days x 6km = 390 km walked

Once we moved into offices in June 2011

Distance to work (via nursery) and back home, bearing in mind this was only for 3 days week until May when we moved to offices: 6km 

Days between 1 June and 31 December 2011: 213 days

Subtract 30 weekends and 30 days not worked (90 days): 123 days

Subtract about 6 Bank holidays: 117 days

End result for 1 June to 31 December 2011 = 702 km walked

(A very rough) total for 2010 and 2011 = 1,925 km walked!

That, my friends, is how I lost my baby weight!

Note: This is just for a bit of fun and is a rough estimate and just for my curiousity as to how far I have pushed my daughter around this beautiful town in her Bugaboo Bee.  This figures are as near to accurate as I can get them!

  1. Even I have done the town walk a few times ... but it IS such a lovely place (St Albans) and at least you CAN walk around safely. Walking definitely trims the hips and thighs and burns up calories.
