Yesterday was an awesome day for The Restoration Project. I woke up feeling great. When I put my shirt on it felt huge, which made me think I was losing weight. Whether I actually did is irrelevant. However, that shirt became my new favorite shirt 🙂
I also achieved one of my first milestones. I walked 5,000 steps!!! According to the US National Library of Medicine’s article, 10,000 steps per day is the popular number for healthy adults. So I monitored my steps every day last week and found that I’m averaging 2,500-3,000 steps per day. This makes sense being that I sit at my desk most of the day. This also means that I need to find ways to get more steps in. Luckily my office has a huge parking lot. So I started waling a few laps a day.
So I’m being smart about this. Rome wasn’t built in a day. I am setting goals to work my way to 10,000 steps per day. Goal #1 is to achieve 5,000 steps per day. Yesterday I walked 5 laps. That was the big factor in getting me over the 5,000 step mark. Now I need to continue this effort on a daily basis!
