this is the year! I've been increasing my steps over the past year and on a good day can hit 12k with no issues, but there aren't as many good days as I'd like! This year I'm setting myself the goal of 70,000 steps every week - hoping that by giving myself a bit of flexibility, I can compensate for less active days and average out at 10k/day.
The hurdle - I don't 'love' walking and too often I use the excuse of a busy day to jump in the car to get somewhere or flop on the sofa rather than relax in a more active way. I''m looking to hold myself accountable through this group, to walk even when my first urge is not to, and really fall in love with exercise at last. People tell me it really is possible
I will sometimes be running my steps as I'm starting C25K again, and zumba-img some too.
I started the Active 10 app last summer after a back op and found it really motivating, as I could only walk for short periods initially. Haven't used it for a while as I don't have my phone with me now back at work, but would definitely recommend it for anyone starting out.
Look forward to becoming part of this community and hearing about everyone's progress!
