10,000 Steps

I’m finding it difficult to hit 10,000 steps on a regular basis. I mean, I went for a morning walk/run yesterday and got almost 4,500 steps. By the time 4:30pm came around yesterday at the office, I was only up to 5,800 steps. Obviously, I’m sitting at my desk way too much…but I was really surprised to only hit that mark after the entire day.

I spent the evening making sure I got my 10,000 steps in…doing whatever I had to do. Today was a day I wasn’t planning on going out for a walk, so that means I’ve got a much tougher time trying to get those steps in.

I don’t know how people do it, especially people who work in an office environment all day. Maybe things will be easier once it slows down a bit at work and it gets a bit nicer outside. I hope so, anyway.

I was feeling a bit sore yesterday and I can feel a bit of tenderness this morning, but I expected that to happen. Thankfully, I didn’t go too nuts yesterday morning so I’m not wrecked by any stretch. I can say, though, that I’m absolutely looking forward to doing this C25K app from the beginning to the end again because I know that I can do it. Last year I was motivated but timid…thinking I could actually run a 5K but not entirely sure. I’ve got the confidence in knowing that I can do it now, so it’s really a matter of trying to keep up the pace.

  1. Getting those steps in will get easier once the weather gets nicer. It’s tough to get motivated to go on even a short walk at lunchtime when we’re still dealing with snowy, icy, slushy sidewalks.

    Also remember that I’ll do whatever you need to help you achieve your goals. 🙂

  2. I bought Ben a fitbit for Christmas and he let me borrow it for a while. I had to walk at least 2 miles to get around 7,000 steps.

    Then the darn thing stopped working for me. So I stopped using it. Oh well, good luck! The nicer weather will get you outside!

  3. I am struggling with this too. My new job is in a call center atmosphere and I can’t just leave my desk to wander all the time. And Sunshine is right, once it gets nicer I will park further from the building. It’s just too damn cold and icy right now!
