10,000 steps…

My goal is to hit 10,000 steps per day.

Today when I uploaded my Fitbit (www.fitbit.com) I was thrilled to see 15, 410 steps.

I have to say though that I walked a lot today. I took 90 minutes and walked around Reeds Lake. I realize today that to hit my 10,000 goal or exceed it, I am going to need to make a commitment to walk more every day.

Much of what I do at the gym (Nu Step, elliptical or bike) doesn’t register steps. In addition to the gym, a good morning or evening walk, every day seems to be what is needed….

I am grateful that the clarity of what is needed to get to my 10,000 step goal comes at a time when the birds are chirping early and the sun is setting late.

The joy of hitting 10,000 every day will be a great goal to accomplish. And I will have a happier dog since she loves to take those steps along with me!
