First week down, a lifetime to go
I've talked to a few of you and you are really taking this challenge to heart. You should, its a good thing! If you haven't started yet (Tonya) just do it. You won't be sad.
I've realized two things since I've started wearing my pedometer - 1. Walking 10k steps in one day is totally doable and 2. slight changes to my day have a big impact. I've been taking walks around my neighborhood in the mornings and that helps get my day of to a good start. If I can log 3,000 steps before breakfast, I know its going to be a good day! It also takes the pressure of the rest of my day, especially if I am working.
Are you doing the contest with me? If so, please leave some comments and let me know how the first week has been treating you! Bruce and James have already surpassed the 10k step mark and I am so proud of them! They've already earned their membership into the 10k club, don't you want to join up too?
To our faithful readers, don't give up! Making big changes like this is hard to do but if we all work together, we will succeed!
