I have decided to challenge myself, and dedicate myself to completing the Surgeon General’s (and my health tracker’s) recommended 10k steps per day. This may not seem like an amazing goal for everyone, but when you’re an adult who drives, it is easy to fall short of this.
I have chosen this goal for a few reasons.
- It is reasonable! – Setting an impossible goal will always cause failure
- It will force me to push myself.
- Walking is something I can do on a daily basis (even though apparently I am not doing it enough lol)
- It is something I don’t have to do alone, but I can. – I would love to be part of your NYC based walking group (HMU!) but sometimes walking in solitude is AMAZING.
(Un)Fortunately I am starting this personal challenge off with a deficit! I wanted to challenge myself to all 68 days of my summer vacation (yay #teacherlife), but 5 of those days have already passed while I was on vacay (pics on IG) and according to my tracker I am at a total of 25,965 including my few steps this morning instead of the 50,000 I should have already gotten in. So at some point I’ve got to make up for this ~25k step deficit, which I am (almost) confident I can do lol. I honestly don’t expect to necessarily make 10k EVERY day, however I WILL reach my goal by the end of the summer vacation (Labor Day).
If you have any tips/tricks to help me reach my goal, please leave them in the comments! Feel free to join me in this challenge as well! Update me via twitter or IG!
