this hopefully is just the start , be realistic in our expectations and I'm slowly working my way up to being just rubbish at walking .lol
Not there yet but trying : this... - Lung Conditions C...
Oh well, as you say, you’re trying. Just keep going Dave. Xxx😘
great!!! Can I ask do you use iPhone or watch for steps or is it your phone? I ask because I bought iPhone watch two years ago so it monitors every step - not just when I’ve got the phone on me? Small steps little and often build up to more steps - hard I know!!!
morning kate , its an app already built into my android phone ,as you say it doesnt measure when ive not got the phone on me but for now it'll do .
Keep walking! Everday you"ll improve. Good luck and don't get discouraged.
this a good start ,I used to be able to get to the front door and back only it was a bungalow,but now I do 6000 steps a day so good for you for trying 👍
oh that isnt al in one continuous stroll , plenty of breaks involved
brilliant so it can be done!!! On the odd occasion I’ve walked 8k to 12k steps that was a day out at Hampton court and on holiday in Egypt you had to walk the whole complex numerous times a day to get to activities pool restaurant etc
A journey of a thousand miles starts with just one step. You've already passed that by more than another thousand steps, so well done. Keep doing just a little bit more each day, and you'll get there.
And it's OK to have a day off when you need to.
its the second day off im worried about lol
you know what Dave - I was terrified of vegetating so whilst waiting for the kettle I would walk on the spot. I went to the tip yesterday with bags of rubbish I thought how on earth am I gonna do this but I did and I paced myself ….
well done kate
im the same kate, we need motivation and sometimes thats hard to find especially from others , i cant blame them they dont know what true breathlrssness is
that’s good. It’s an achievement, the more we do it the better it gets, but take care.
Before the progression of my illness and when I had my little dog, walking and doing the recommended steps were not a problem but I did notice that, having short legs and a short stride, my distance covered was less than a taller, long striding person.
a dog would get you walking and they are great company to 💜
Well done to you, you have to make a start somewhere 1400 today 1500 next week, you will hardly notice the difference, just dont push too hard x
Well done!🎉 Every journey starts with a single step.
or a stumble im my case
🙂Following my illness I used to walk to the top of the drive every day , just a few steps, then to next door, then further up. It took longer to dress for the out doors than I was actually out. 😂 Now, admittedly after a long time trying and crying and having set backs, I enjoy yoga and pilates and managed to mooch a little in the new forest.
so jealous , i used to love walking in forests there was something so ancient aboutcthen mystical almost
There certainly is. 🌳We found a lovely picnic spot then I sat drinking in the forest, and a cup of tea , whilst my husband explored further. I've had to accept my limitations but we have to be determined not to give in. Just try a few steps or stretches every day and we'll cheer you on.
Well done. Everyday is different but trying is the main thing & accepting limitations. Good luck & I hope over times it gets a little easier 🙂
small steps lead to big steps.!
