For someone who averaged anywhere between 1000 – 1300 steps a day, every couple of weeks. I took on the challenge of REDJanuary to get active.
I aimed for 5000 steps a day, every day. I gave myself the option of fewer steps, as long as I went out of the house at some point.
My goal was that every single day, I would venture out and get some fresh polluted air. I did well.
I did have 3 days where I felt exhausted and thus did not push myself. I am a firm believer that you do as much as you can but KNOW YOUR LIMITS.
I started small with 5000 steps and aim to continue on. I will no longer be actively counting my steps but I shall be trying to keep up the positive change of getting out into the fresh air at least once a day.
