Well week 1 of the Omron Fitness Challenge has come and gone, and though I have lost a little more weight, I have realized that this takes a little more adjusting to than I thought, and I am definitely going to step up my game for week 2. I have struggled to get 10,000 steps in on any of the week 1 days. The highest I got was a little over 6,600. I thought all the walking I did at school would definitely add up considering I have to walk across campus and up stairs multiple times through out my schedule. Plus the walking to and from my car. I even went snowboarding and that only gave me like 1,000 steps :-/. I guess I really don’t leave my house enough. I keep seeing some people getting 15,000 steps a day. I guess all I can do is compare me to myself and do better than last time. I don’t have a gym membership so that makes it hard to get some cardio in when it’s like 15 degrees outside. However, my mother in law has a gym at her workplace and I am allowed to work out there as long as she is there, so I will start doing that tomorrow. I have to sign a document to use it and I don’t have it yet, so today I just played Just Dance on the Wii to try and get some cardio in for the day.
Mamavation is hosting this Omron Fitness Challenge and I am really enjoying being in the Facebook group for the challenge as well as the support from the Mamavation community. It helps keep me on track and inspires me to do better. I need to start reminding myself this every morning:
