I find one of the hardest things in life to do is to find time to do everything I want to do! Recently I decided it was time I got serious about getting in shape and losing a few pounds. I knew I needed to do this but I was always putting it off until tomorrow.
I found a web site recently devoted to those that want to ‘walk’ their way to fitness. It was just the motivation I needed to get started. I only needed to do 10,000 steps a day. HA! I didn’t realize how many steps that was until I bought a pedometer and started stepping. First couple of weeks I found out I was only doing 3000 or so steps a day so I got serious and doubled that after the first week. Now my goal is to hit 10,000 steps at least 3 times a week. It takes an effort and I really have to work at it but I know it can be done. I’m actually enjoying getting out and seeing the neighborhood up close instead of speeding by in a car.
I’m finding I have more energy now that I’m walking and eating better …. I know the books say that is what is suppose to happen but I never really gave it a chance before. So wish me luck as I strive to step my way to fitness! I’ve already done it 3 times this week and that makes me feel good about myself! Anyone want to join me in stepping their way to fitness?
