I seem to have become a bit obcessed with doing 10,000 steps a day. Yesterday I got home and had just 100 steps to do to have done 10, 000 steps. I just thought no worries but it just kept niggling at me. In the end at 10:30pm I got up and walked up and down the hallway and did did and extra 1,000 steps along with 5 mins of HiiT. I must admit I slept well last night and woke up feeling rested. So maybe I will leave some steps for before bed time. I am slowly discovering that I actually enjoy being active.And since I started walking the 2 miles to work and the 2 miles home, I have discovered that my knee does not hurt a much as it used to. Hopefully I will not need to go down the knee replacement route that my Doctor has discussed with me.
Lovely people remember 2 -5 minutes of activity ( brisk walk on the spot, Knee ups with hand raises, star jumps if you are able, marching on the spot,straight leg with raises arm raises, hopping on the spot) makes a difference and you will be surprised at how much especially if you do it a couple of time a day
