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 .
