Ending 2017 with a bang!

For the first time in days (Christmas, family, being away....) I went walking today. And I managed 3000 steps!!! The best I've done this entire year! I must admit that I called in at the veggie shop on the way back, so I did have a little rest - even so, I'm so pleased to have got to this magic number! I can even dare to dream of 5000 steps sometime in 2018! Thanks to everyone for the support and encouragement you've given me this year, I couldn't have done it without you!

That is great news kay50. After 2 years of pain from arthritis, I find that am now able to walk half a kilometre. Looking forward to being more active in 2018, and wishing all of you in the forum good health and much joy of the coming year.

Thanks Suryakaizen - I hope you also have a new year that brings you improved health and great happiness! Well done on your walking achievement! By the way, I took your advice and have been taking turmeric and ginger daily - the arthritic pain is definitely relieved! Thank you!

Thanks Scottishgranny - as you so rightly say, getting fit and mobile isn't easy! I added only 100 steps a week, but to me it seemed like an extra mile! Good luck on your journey to being fit and healthy!
