This check-in is for Feb. 9th – 15th. My goal for this week was an average of 7K steps per day, and since I hit that goal, I’ll be working towards 8K steps per day from Feb. 16th – 22nd.
I’ll add 1K steps each week until I’m completing 12K steps per day. After that, I’ll add in resistance training and/or jogging. I didn’t go to any hot yoga classes this week.
If it weren’t for this challenge, I don’t think I would have met my goal this week. I pushed myself harder than I would have if I didn’t do these weekly check-ins. 8K steps a day is going to be difficult because I’m now at the point where I have to walk every day. In previous weeks, I was able to get enough steps to cover multiple days, so if something came up, I was still covered. That also allowed for full rest days. Now I don’t have that option, so I’m not sure how that’s going to work for the days when I’m stuck at my computer writing my research papers.
One thing I’m proud of is that I’m beginning to see a difference in my level of fitness. I still haven’t lost any weight or inches, but when the Boyfriend and I were walking our usual route, which includes a steep hill, I didn’t get winded going up the hill. In fact, the Boyfriend and I continued our conversation all the way to the top and I didn’t even need to stop to catch my breath 🙂
