I had put together an impressive step Streak -- 69 days of 7,000 steps or more. The last 8 days of that streak, I put in over 10,000 steps per day.
That Streak came to a halt yesterday. For the first time in over two months, I walked less than 7,000 steps in a day.
One Streak ends.
A few months ago, I'd have spent a day (or week!) mentally angry with myself, and gotten stuck.
Not this time.
Another streak begins TODAY.
Today, I had reached 7,000 steps before I got to work. Not bad for a Monday morning!
In my "tool box" are all of the things I learned during my last Streak -- how to exercise while I'm away from home, how to slip in a few extra steps during the workday, how many steps it takes to walk a lap of the first floor of my home -- and a new goal!
To reach a minimum of 7,000 steps for 70 days, OR MORE! To reach 10,000 steps on as many of those days as possible.
I can't let missing the bullseye yesterday stop me. I want to be healthy, I want to be fit, and I don't have the luxury of not aiming at the target!
Good thing I have new walking shoes -- can't wait to wear them out!
How about you? What are YOUR goals for this year? Start small, but think BIG results!
