My own personal goal - achieved✔

Hi

Well this week i have achieved my own mini goal of 6000 steps minimum per day for a full week 46,547 that is about 22miles. Plus 2 .5 miles on my bike. My cycling is steady as it's nearly 50 years since I have last been on a bike until recently.

I usually start the week very well but seem to struggle on a Thursday for some unknown reason i pick up again Saturday and Sunday. However I was determined to dig deep and achieve. Thank you Caz for spurring me on.

I aim to increase again to 7000 per day - I would like a couple of weeks consistent with 6000 before i do increase.

I am mindful of making my goals achievable.

Started at 5000 now on 6000 moving towards 7000 working towards 10.000 👍☺

    Thank you let's see what today brings. Nip in the air this morning😀

  • Hi Trulyplumptious,

  • Oh thank you Lowcal thank you for your comments.

    Need another full week on 6000 then I will see how I feel.

    Have a good week ☺

  • Well done you-so pleased you persevered and reached your goal.

    I had the same intention for the past week but only for 3000steps and mostly walking around the house and garden but I did manage it in small bits. Making the most of the lower humidity.

    Impressed that you went out on the bike too,you really are on a roll.🙂

  • Oh thanks 70 plus for your kind comments of support.

    My initial journey with steps was spasmodic very up and down.

    Then I had labyrinthitis which severely affected my balance and impacted on what I could physically do.

    So I have just had to persevere and build it back up. So 3000 is a good place to start. I agree.☺that's great.

    I might go 6500 opposed to 7000 for a few days however I do achieve above 6000 some days - Baby steps.

    I'm afraid I am built for comfort not for speed. I also do the walking around the garden and house to get steps in.

    Yes went out on the bike -chased by a dog 🐶and managed to come up the incline towards home 2 lamp posts from home. (note incline not hill) and I had to stop. 😨Cramp in the thighs. So walked 👣to the last lamp post from home and got back on the bike and finished my adventure. Yea!!!!!!🐢
