Well 2016 is now officially here!!! Although this blog is in it’s infancy I am proud of myself. I hope everyone that stops by and views this page has a happy and healthy new year. For those whom are looking for the first time or people whom are returning to view I say “Welcome”. For those wondering what this blog is about it is simple:
I am planning to walk “6 Million Steps in 2016”.
This may not seem like much but it actually is for the normal American as we only average about 5,ooo a day or 2 million a year. The only people whom walk 6 million steps a year are those people whom run / walk about 4+ miles on a regular basis multiple days per week and have active jobs. So for someone like myself this is will be a huge challenge to triple my activity level. (For the math geeks it is about 16,500 steps per day) By doing this I hope help myself with my weight issues
So what’s the plan you ask??
Well the general plan is to spend some more time at the gym, and doing a few different GPS games that I partake in. They are Munzee, Geocaching, and Flagstack. The biggest thing will just be the time and doing things like walking around the mall a few times, having my wife drop me off somewhere and walking home, and maximizing every opportunity I can to get steps in.
This last five days I have been trying to average 7,500 plus steps a day to prepare to start this challenge today. I was able to succeed with this very well, despite cold weather by going to the gym and doing some Munzee activities.
- December 27th – 9,153
- December 28th – 8,515
- December 29th – 12,840
- December 30th – 8,717
- December 31st – 7411
This was an average step count of 9,327 per day for the last 5 days.
So the plan is that over the month of January to average about 11-12 thousand steps per day and each month of the year continue to bump the average up until I am averaging 17,000 steps a day in the summer.
My Writing Plan
During the week Monday through Friday I will only be sharing small little posts of step counts or small stories of the day. On Saturday’s I will do a re-cap of the week, goals, step count, etc.
I ask you to join me on this journey. However you wish to join is up to you… Follow me, walk your own journey, share your own resolutions, share your life events, etc.
Thank You for reading and I hope to get to know some people better.
