10000 Steps

A few years ago my office participated in the 10,000 steps program. You have to walk 10,000 steps a day. 10,000 steps are close to 5 miles. I usually ended up with 7000 – 8000 steps per day.

I decided to try this again for the rest of the year. My blood pressure has been off the charts lately, so I’m watching what I eat and trying to get my exercise in by doing this 10,000 steps program.

I found I like to walk more than I like exercising. I also found that I will talk myself out of exercising but you’re walking constantly so, if I get in 2000 steps, that means I’m moving around more.

How are you staying in shape this year?
