LET'S GET WALKING!
Your challenge today is to get in 10,000 steps. Do you own a pedometer? If not, you might want to invest in one. Put it on first thing in the morning and see how many steps you take in an average day. You might be surprised at the number.
How much is 10,000 steps in a day? For most people, it is the equivalent of walking for an hour a day. The average person's stride length is approximately 2.5 feet long. That means it takes just over 2,000 steps to walk one mile, and 10,000 steps is close to 5 miles.
Many people already get in 1000-3000 or more steps just with daily activity, and are still gaining unwanted weight. To burn off extra calories for weight loss, walk 10,000 steps per day most days of the week.
The recommended number of steps is 6000 for health, 10,000 for weight loss when you count all steps during the day. For weight loss, an uninterrupted walk each day of 4000-6000 steps is recommended.
So, CAN YOU GET IN 10,000 STEPS TODAY? Give it a try!
Have a FANTASTIC Thursday!
“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
