Last week I said that I hoped to improve on that weeks total step stats and this week I can now reveal that I really did improve! I hit a total 59860 steps, that’s an average of 8551 steps per day! I hit 10000 steps (or over) on 2 days, over 9000 on 3 and I’m not far off reaching 10000 steps per day overall! I am still struggling with Saturday and Sunday, though this is something I have been aware of since I started this blog, for me Saturday and Sunday are days of rest and catching up on things I haven’t done in the week, spending time with my partner who works away mon-fri and generally chilling. In order to hit my goal of 10000 steps a day average I am going to need to absorb 20000steps into my normal week (mon-fri) so that anything else I move on the weekend becomes a bonus! This means that I realistically need to be hitting 14000 steps on 5 days a week. I think this may be what I am going to start aiming for instead of 10000 steps a day just to fit my lifestyle a bit better and stop me feeling so bad for having lazy weekends (not that there is anything wrong with a lazy weekend!) Once the weather starts to improve and it is both lighter an warmer I may adjust this as I seem to be more active in the warmer months.
I dont think I will be making it my goal to hit 14000 steps 5 days out of 7 just yet…its a bit of a leap from an average of 8551 steps per day, so this week my goal is to push my average to around 9500 steps a day.
What are your goals this week? How have you improved? What do you want to change?
