And we are the third of the way with the Ultimate You challenge!
Day 10 – Walk 8000 steps
Again with the million steps?! I’m not even managing the 6000 steps a day! Although, when I took my big boy to the movies on Monday, we walked around the mall for a while before and after and when I get home, my phone did a little happy dance because I had managed over 6000 steps!! First time ever! Woohoo! So not going to the mall every day though (costs a fortune).
I have however taken more notice of how much (or rather how little) I do walk, so I’ve started to use the stairs a lot more. Every morning I walk up 1 flight of stairs (excluding all the stairs on the way to the work, avoiding the elevators), but I’m going to try and increase this by 1 flight a week and see how far I can get. I will also start walking down a few flights a day as well. Walking down is easier, so think I might try the full 8 flights from the beginning.
The extra walking and 50 squats a day should hopefully increase my fitness levels, even if slightly. A little is better than nothing! And who knows, maybe I become addicted to exercise…… bwahahahahaha
