10,000 Steps

Wednesday, September 23, 2020

Hey, I finally prepped some boiled eggs! I can't believe how hard I let that be for myself. Proud to report that I am continually refining my process and doing well. Learning from mistakes and trying my best. I am lucky I didn't gain this week with some of the things I did or didn't do! Not quiet a full pound but it wasn't a gain and I can't be upset about that! Just incentive to work harder. One thing I have learned is that going straight for my 10,000 steps is a bad idea. It wears me out and hurts my foot. I am now trying to break my cardio up. My goal is to get 10,000 steps every day this week. 10,000 steps is what the Heart Association says a person should get daily. That is important information and a good reason to try harder.

Do you get 10,000 steps daily?

Thanks for checking in on my blog. Wishing you the best on reaching your goals. emoticon

    I have a goal of 5,000 but I'm not meeting that. Begin again...as many times as it takes

    My daily step goal has been 7500 steps forever. It honors the need to move while respecting my 15 year old bionic knees. They have a shelf life. When I had my right knee scoped a year ago, the doctor told me they looked great...X-rays provided the proof. He encouraged me to keep doing whatever it is I was. I am!
    I think the goal should be to increase your overall activity levels, move every hour. Gradually increase. Move more, active couch potatoes lurk in us all. Sighs. Dang, I didn’t even know an inner athlete lived in me until I was well into my 50s. I fought my way back from obesity by first doing yoga. Then in 2015 it was exercising 15 minutes a day...getting fit in 15. I’ll send you links to some of my favorite trainers on YouTube.
    Sweat IS magic. Muscle is a fat furnace. Working out is my number one sanity saver. Exercise your strong, your future self thanks you. I mean you’re literally changing the trajectory of your life. One choice at a time...link your arm through mine. We’ve got this!!!

    LOL! I'm boiling eggs right now too.

    I try to get as close to 10,000 steps per day. But I don't do them all at once. I go out early in the morning before working from home and get in around 4000 which is about 2 laps in the neighborhood. Try to do that again later afternoon or after dinner. The rest comes from getting up from the kitchen chair and walking around the house or outside for a few minutes to take a break. I can't do it all at once as my lower back starts hurting really bad. Too many 'accidents' when I was younger - car, sledding, falls (and I'm sure the extra weight doesn't help).

    Do what you can do and slowly increase and you will get there.

    Way to go ~ having healthy snacks on hand helps when you get a little hungry.

    I do get my 10,000 in but I don't do it all at once. I move anytime I can during the day. The big times are early morning and evening. In the evening, I can walk in front of the tv or have a dance party with my kids to get those extra steps in.

    You are doing great @GoPromiseGo !
    I do not have a goal of 10,000 steps per day.
    I have a sedentary job that does not allow me to walk that much. I started out small.
    Right now my goal is 3,000-4,000 steps per day, Mon-Fri and 6,000-7,000 on the weekends.
    That's pretty good considering I was only getting about 1,250-2,000/day.

    Keep doing what your are doing and I know you will reach your goals!!!!
