10,000 steps a day

“I don’t have dreams . I have goals . Now it’s on to the next one ” Harvey Specter 

To approach my health goals I broke it down to  smaller goals and then monitored the data .

I had a very simple approach by :

  • Increasing activity 
  • Monitor activity 

As mentioned in previous post I use Jawbone UP 2 to monitor my activity , sleep and food nutrients . 

I found an article on the NHS in the UK that the average person walks around. 3,000- 4,000 steps a day ! The article talks about how increasing steps has a mulitple health benefits NHS – The 10,000 steps challenge . So I thought why not ” in for a penny in for a pound ” ( loose pounds that is 😉  )  so every day 10,000 steps  , it became very easy after time to achieve this amount on a daily bases . 

When I saw the effect I started to increase my activity  by using ellipitacal machines at Tokyo American Club . I say easy what I mean  when you achieved it , you notice the numbers are not so big . So then I started hitting 15k , 20k ,30k didn’t seam that daunting .  It became a habit . Willpower is like any muscle in th body it need to be trained :

Few tips I found :

  • Don’t miss two days in a row , we all slip up but don’t slip up two days as that’s starting to form a bad habit . 
  • Habits are formed by repeating certain task over and over , so take it at your pace .
  • Cut your habit down into chunks .

Changing my lifestyle using maths and hard work 

13 months ago I was in Shangahi and was talking with Nigel  about fitness and health and how that effects all aspect of life . 

At the time I had a ” brain of a gladiator but the body of the michelin man ” .

So I decided I was going to change my health and fitness around , so withthe help of Nigel He mentioned a few things . 

A1. Monitor . 
What you eat and what you do . 

It’s very simple the body is a machine what ever you put in is either burned off or stored , 

To monitor my activity I bought Jawbone as this monitors activity and sleep . This I have to say was ettential as I placed a goal of 10,000 steps a day and I made sure I achieved it . 

One week ago I reached 4milliom steps a average of 12,000 a day 

Strongly reccomend this for anyone looking to getting fit and healthy as it links up the iPhone and advices on ypur diet / activity and sleep what you need to do more of / less of . A feature which I see valuable is the ability to connect with friends and monitor and encourage each other . We might have all the advance technology in the world but deep down peer pressure and group mentalty has such amazing effect . 

2. Activity

One key thing I needed to do was to increase my activity . I did this on many forms :

  • Swimming 
  • Elliptical Machine 
  • Rowing machine 
  • Kettle bells 
  • ( If you ever watched week in life Nigel you understand why !) 
  • Boxing –  as someone who enjoyes the sporty of boxing .  Typing this I am in training with the guys and girls for “Tony Evans & deVere Group Executive Fight Night “
  • Joined Club 360 in Tokyo , which helped me with fitness and nutrition ( there be specific blog post on this next week )

3. Goals –

Without goals we can’t measure how far we gone and how far we need to go .  When I started I had a huge goal to achieve so I broke it down to months , weeks , day goals . By knowing my numbers I was able to reach goals . 4 week to go to hit my target 82kg and 15% body  fat .

There’s so much information on what worked for me but knowing the figures was key . 

I became passionate about food and how it effects the body , mind . The way the body works and how excersie on mind / body . 

I be writing more about this as this has become a passion for me now , as the healthy living has become a lifestyle choice for me  and I can tell you it was one of best desicion I ever made .

Japan GDP Grows , Manufacting Grows and the Nikkei continues the rally .

Japan GDP raises Nikkei to 15-year high as Asia’s shares dip 

Asian shares took a dip earlier today during a varied day on Wall Street, yet Japan’s better-than-predicted economic growth raised the Nikkei to a 15-year high. 

The dollar climbed a two-month high versus the yen after positive US housing data, and as the euro remained stressed by anticipations that the European Central Bank would increase its bond-buying stimulus as well as on new apprehensions about Greece. 

Athens will not make a payment to the International Monetary Fund that is due on June 5 if there is no deal with its creditors by then, the government’s parliamentary speaker said. 

European shares were seen giving back some of the previous session’s advances, with financial spread betters predicting Britain’s FTSE 100 .FTSE to open around 0.1% lower, and Germany’s DAX .GDAXI and France’s CAC 40 .FCHI were each seen down about 0.4%. 

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS was down about 0.2%. 
Yet, the Nikkei stock index .N225 ended up 0.9% at a fresh 15-year peak, catching a tailwind from a weaker yen and after data showed Japan’s economy expanded at a 2.4% annualized rate in the January-March period. That was its fastest pace in a year, exceeding the consensus appraisal for 1.5% growth.

Can the Chinese rally continue ?

China shares rally to hit four-month high

Thanks to commitment from Beijing to enact serious reforms on its financial market in 2015, Mainland Chinese shares rallied to their highest in four months.

Earlier on Monday, China said that guidelines had been approved which would see a range of reform policies implemented. This includes measures to increase the yuan’s role internationally. As a result, the Shanghai Composite index led Asian gains at the close, registering a rise of 3.2% to 4,417.55. Hong Kong’s benchmark Hang Seng index finished 0.4% higher at 27,693.54.

The guidelines on reforms for the economy include an experimental investment link between the Shenzhen and Hong Kong stock exchanges. It is expected to follow one already established between Shanghai and Hong Kong, according to the Financial Times. That said, there no official statement has yet been made about when the new investment link will come into play.

China’s approved guidelines for economic reform also pointed to changes in taxation, deposit rates and state-owned enterprises.

Tian Weidong, an analyst at Kaiyuan Securities said Beijing’s “policy backdrop” would see investors “emboldened to stay in the market”.
