For the first time, I wore my pedometer to work, and I was surprised how many steps I took just teaching. I also spent about 10 minutes outside on the track walking - I would have stayed longer, but it was freezing today, so I walked around the school for the rest of my lunch break. Afterwards I went shopping with my best friend - nothing big, but we did walk around quite a bit, and I found a nice pair of workout pants for $8 at Ross. Total today: 8164 steps. Not bad. I'm well on my way to making the 10000 a day.
Right now, I'm not worried about cardio, strength, weights, equipment, or anything like that. All I'm trying to do is get into the habit of eating healthy foods and proper amounts, and be physically active every day. The step counter is one tool; timing my workouts is another. I want to walk or swim at least 5 days a week for at least 30 min. I simply need to get my endurance up and get so used to working out that I don't think twice about it.
