I consider myself to be a fairly active person—I practice yoga 3-5 times a week, I’m on my feet running around at work all day, and when the spirit moves me, I’ve even been known to head out for a run. The problem though, is that the spirit hasn’t really been moving me lately—at all—and my life has majorly been lacking any form of cardiovascular activity. Welcome April’s lent: 10,000 Steps.
I don’t remember exactly how it came to me, but one day last week I suddenly thought to myself, “Hey, what if I got a pedometer and made sure I took the recommended 10,000 steps per day?”. And just like that, a lent was born. So, this month I’ll be bringing my new little pedometer buddy along with me everywhere I go to make sure I hit 10,000 steps per day—every day (#noexcuses).
I just received the pedometer tonight (by way of my coworker Natascia’s husband—thanks Dustin, you’re the best!) and tomorrow is my official start day—woohoo! (I’m actually legitimately excited for this).
Anyone out there an avid pedometer user? Any tips and tricks for a newbie?
