One of my strategies for keeping fit is walking 8,000 steps a day. I'm a pretty lazy person and could spend the whole day lazing around. Apart from walking to the supermarket, I don't go anywhere else. Having a way to keep track of the number of steps I take a day is really useful to a lazy bum like me. I use this free Runtastic app and it calculates the number of steps I take on a daily basis.
Here is my stats for today. As you can see, it's evening and I haven't achieved my 8,000 steps. A trip to the supermarket only chalks up 1,500 steps or so. Today I went to the library, the supermarket and walked around my estate 3 times and I only managed to reach 3,729 steps. Later after dinner, I will make sure I walk some more to get my 8,000 steps.
I don't beat myself up when I don't achieve 8,000 steps. But I try very hard to reach the goal every day. So far I haven't succeeded every day. But I keep trying.
