10,000 steps - finally!

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Did you know in 2008 the place I worked has a 10,000 steps a day campaigne...I think I got up to 7000 one day and thought I was gonna die!

I've never been a pedometer kinda gal. I love weights and circuits and this year I WILL do cross fit...that gets me excited. Walking is like killing time by doing something not unhealthy. :) but not being able to do something doesn't sit well with my type A personality...so I thought by the end of February I'd get it done...I guess I was annoyed so I did it 4 days ago and have done it 3 more days...I had a total rest day yesterday. I love seeing the target reached...and I've worked out about how many steps it takes down one street...today I did Wii EA Active and then had about 6000 steps left! 113 minutes of activity! 1 very large blister, my hip issue is roaring tonight, and even my toe joints are yelling at me! Lol

The point is I did it..finally! And now that I have, it's no big deal! I know exactly the time commitment...I may even do 1- 45 minute walk early in the day and then at night see what I have left and then grab the dog and finish it off...it IS doable and the Fitbit makes it easier. :)
Off to bed with an ice pack and some CSI.
Have a fantastic second week of the new year!

    I am literally chained to my phone at work for 8 hours a day. So on all my breaks I walk circles around the conference room table. I even run a bit... Usually buys me ~4000 steps! Point being, if we set our minds to it we can overcome any obstacle!

    That's become my daily goal now, but it ain't always easy especially for someone who used to get short of breath walking around the block! Literally!
    Stick with it though - emoticon emoticon
