Small Steps!

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Really, how much can parking a little farther out do for one? I don't know, but I know that every little bit of movement "extra" I do helps me along with my healthy lifestyle goals. So, today, when I wheeled into the mall parking lot to run an errand, I passed up the two handicapped parking spots - which I have a permit to park in - and I parked near the end of the row. Now, I'm not very fast getting from the car to the door of the mall, but at least I was moving. And, yes, my feet and legs hurt a little more when I walk a little more, but in some ways the pain is a reminder that I do still have my mobility. I was so excited to upload my steps from my Spark Activity tracker when I got home. Between my trip to the mall and my movement in my classroom today, I ended up with almost 4,000 steps before I even do my evening workout on my recumbent bike. That's exciting stuff because I know those small steps add up in the long run!

    Welcome back to SP. Your exercise is important but counting the calories if far more crucial to your success. It's simple math - less coming in than going out. You can do it. It's a long journey and you have friends who will cheer you on.
