Practice Tracking Your Steps
As we continue this month in our walking challenge today we are challenging you to practice tracking your steps each day.
We are challenging you to allow the nature of walking to help you get in better shape and therefore better health.
We know for sure that walking is the connection to living a healthy and vibrant life and we believe walking inspires the mind, activates the body, and nourishes the soul.
So, today we want to welcome you back to the 21-Day Walking Challenge. Today is day 3, and we’re going to discuss the idea to help you Practice Tracking Your Steps.
For day 3 of the 21-Day Walking Challenge, let’s get our fitness trackers ready to go. Don’t hurry – you can use your phone, this is what we have used for the last 5 years and find it to work quite well.
Before we get started on the tip of the day, here is what your walk looks like:
Your Walk Today: 16 Minutes Long
Today’s Tip: Use your phone to track each walk from this point on.
As you can see, you are only going to walk 1 minute longer than yesterday. This is how the entire walking challenge will go.
Very slight increases in how long you walk. When you go slow and steady, you have a better chance of success.
Today, let’s talk about tracking your walks and steps. We assume you at least bring your phone on your walks to time how long you are walking. Your phone can be a great tool not just for the timing, but it probably includes an app with a pedometer or to track where you are walking.
We have written in prior posts our experience when we began walking each morning. We wrote about using a Fitness Tracker Here and we made a video here
We used our phones as a way to track our steps each day. In fact, we signed up for the monthly challenges. Each month the challenge was to walk 200,000 steps. This plan helped us walk over 3 million steps in 12 months. So, we know the plan works if you work the plan.
Don’t worry if you are not there yet. This is where we started. We believe that taking action and improving over time with tiny steps is the absolute best way to WIN in the pursuit of a new fitness habit.
This is why we are only adding 1 minute for your walk today.
Anyone can WIN at adding 1 minute to the walk. Enjoy the time.
See one thing new on the walk today. Notice the beauty of nature. What animals will you see? What colours do you notice? These are some of the things that we enjoy each and every time we are out on our morning walk.
It would be great to hear what you are beginning to notice when you are out for your walk in the comments below.
We believe that the practice of walking is one of the ways we connect to living a healthy and vibrant life.
As we track the steps of each walk this helps us improve, we see our successes in the number of steps we do daily/weekly and it definitely helps us be thankful for each day that we get outside on our daily walk.
Will you take the time today to get outdoors, and use your phone as a way to practice tracking your steps? We do recommend that if you use your phone to turn off the data and put it on airplane mode.
We appreciate that it never seems as if there are enough hours in the day, but it is so important to make a conscious decision to practice moving well and we believe that walking is the most accessible form of exercise on the planet. Taking care of your mind, body and emotional needs will help you be able to live your best life.
You are your best advocate; if you are not moving well each day, it is easy to get burned out by all of life's demands. Taking some time each day for yourself to get outside and walk can have a profound impact on your well-being. Physical fitness and moving well begin and ends with you!
We would appreciate hearing from you. Will you accept today's challenge? Share any ideas or comments below.
