Hi Loves! I’m adding a new 30 day challenge into the books. I’ve missed 30 day challenges since I haven’t really done one since January with my 30 days of yoga challenge (which I still do off and on – I LOVE those videos!). To piggyback on last week’s post about being accountable and wearing my vivofit I’m going to hit – or try – to do this walking challenge by one of my favorite walking workout guru’s Leslie Sansone. I used to do her videos all the time and took a step back to focus on yoga. This months challenge is to hit 10,000 steps by day 30. So far as of day 7 when you’re reading this I’ve completed every day and often cross over the goal. (see challenge below) For a beginner or advanced level chart visit my fitness pal’s blog. (She is a great leader in walking videos – if you’re interested in walking at home – seriously – check her out! She’s amazing!)
My typical day has me hovering around 3-4,000 steps if I don’t try to move very much. Hitting 8,000 steps this week…will be a challenge but I like that she increases your steps slowly so its not like BAM! Walk 10,000 steps. Fingers crossed I can keep this going. I’m also going to continue my 4-6 yoga workouts again this week. I really love relaxing after work to yoga. And to help me hit my “steps” goal I often set the timer on my phone and do my own walking in place or marching around the room, or even dancing along to music. On Sunday night I did 30 minutes and blew right past my goal of 7,000 steps. Plus at the end of a delicious Easter weekend – I felt the need to walk some of it off! 🙂
How many steps do you walk? Would you consider one of these challenges if you had a pedometer?
