Fitness Friday - 06/22 - 06/28

I meant to put this up last night.....then I caught up on Pinterest and next thing I knew, it was bedtime.

So anyway, here we are a day late.

Saturday: nadda

Sunday:  zip

Monday: zilch

Tuesday:  big fat goose egg

Wednesday: 10,000+ steps, including 20 minutes on the treadmill

Thursday: 10,000+ steps, including 10 minutes on the treadmill and a 40 minute walk outside

Friday: 10,000+ steps, including morning walk to daycare and 10 minutes on the treadmill

Following our TOPS awards night Tuesday, I was inspired to make a change.  I have decided to do one change at a time and picked to work on the number of steps I take each day.  I know for a fact that I need to increase my exercise, but some days, I don't feel like going for a 30 minute walk after dinner, etc.  Using the step counter showed me that I don't need to actually walk for 30 minutes to hit my goal.  Depending on what I get in each day at work, it could be as little as 15 minutes.  I calculated that I roughly walk 110 steps per minute.  Sure, I could hustle it up and walk faster, but right now I am comfortable with my pace and the added 2000 - 3000 each day allows me to feel it in my calves.

If I make it to Tuesday, that will have been 1 whole week keeping a goal and that would be a record for me.  If I can do it for 1 week, I can continue for a second week. 

How did you do this week?

Until next time,
