EXERCISE Let's go walking

Sunscreen check, hat check, shades check, water check, cell check.

I'm building up my stamina for my 3 day walk. When I have a specific route for my exercise planned, I do fine. If it's a short 2 mile walk or a longer 10 mile, no problem.

My issue is normal activity.

I've started wearing my pedometer again so I can see exactly how much walking or how little walking I actually manage in a day. I like the 10,000 step challenge. This means 5 miles per day. Definitely a challenge when the car is parked 20 steps from my desk. The bathroom is 20 steps from my desk. The copier is 10 steps from my desk. And, my house isn't that big. Do you see a pattern forming here?

Everything is "too conveniently" located. This saves time so I can get my work done fast and go exercise, right. It hardly ever works that way.

Wearing the pedometer keeps me on track. I have come up short of the 10,000 steps on a couple of days. Each day gets easier.

Why do we deserve something that is bad for us?

This may seem too simple, but, I have always wondered why people think they "deserve" something that is bad for them?

We, here at NM, see a big spike of users on Monday and Tuesday, then a gradual decline that includes a total "wipe out" over the weekend. We hear the same thing, "I've been good so now I can celebrate". Celebration always mean "let's eat" and eat poorly. The good you did at the beginning of the week can be totally erased by Sunday night.

I believe we all deserve to be healthy. But, it's up to us to do it for ourselves. On NutriMirror you can actually see how your choices are effecting your health. Take advantage of this knowledge. Check your Reflection Analysis daily. There's a lot you can learn from that page.

Keeping ourselves as healthy as possible is up to us as individuals. Make the right choices. I know it's not easy. What do you do that you have had to learn to do and now it's easy?

Do one healthy thing a day. Make one good food choice a day. You may make that a habit. Small changes can add up.
