I have been saying for a while that I am going to get fit and I started to do just this a week ago. My aim for each day is to, where possible, walk 10,000 steps. Some days I will manage and others, like today, I won’t but as long as I try to get out each day to do something then I will be happy.
To help manage this I have started to walk both my dogs separately, meaning I have to walk twice as far.
So for the week so far I have managed as follows:
Monday – 10,083 steps
Tuesday – 10,370 steps
Wednesday – 2,979 steps (Hogmanay, up at parents (90 miles round trip) so had a day indoors playing with Molly)
Thursday – 5,224 steps (at 21:20 on New Year’s day. Another long car ride (3 hours in total) and indoors fun with other set of grand-parents).
This has not been the best of weeks so far but finding that with the holidays being here it is harder to find time to do anything as I have spent a lot of time in cars lately. It will be a lot easier now that Christmas and New Year are out of the way and our routine is back in order.
I have also joined up with some other bloggers and Tweeters who have been taking part in #JanStreakers to help get active this January. I saw the idea over at Plutonium Sox so thought I had nothing to lose by joining in, other than some weight maybe!
