This week my goal was to walk 50,890 steps over a period of 7 day, increasing my steps 10% over my baseline. Well, my friends…this was obviously too easy because I surpassed my goal by 3,888 steps! This is great, but it makes me a little nervous for next week. On another note, I have really enjoyed the using the Fitbit Flex for this challenge. It’s a constant reminder to get up and walk as often as I can.
Here are a few easy changes I made to get in extra steps:
- Park in the spot furthest away from the door
- “Accidentally” forget things in the car, thus forcing myself to walk back and get them
- Short walks whenever I could get them in. The weather in Texas is finally starting to get nice – so hopefully outdoor walks can become more regular.
Goal: To walk 10% more steps that the previous week until I am walking 10,000 steps or more everyday.
Week two, I must walk an average of 8,607 steps a day (60,249 for the whole week).
