Why I Post
I hope that all my friends know that I don't post my walks to Facebook for attention or approval. I only want to encourage all of you to put on those shoes and walk. Walking has so many health benefits and we've all been doing it since we were about one year old. I love my FitBit, which records my steps every day. I aim for 10,000 steps a day and have gotten that most days since Johnny left me for heaven. It is great for my mental, spiritual and emotional health as well as my physical health. When I walk early, I listen to my FP4H Scripture memory CD and pray. When I walk later, I talk on my cell phone to make the time go faster. For two years, I have sent my daily stats from my Fitbit to my trainer, Donna. It's the last thing before I go to bed. The other night, I got a phone call after I had sent my stats. Now my cell doesn't work inside half the time, so when I go outside to walk and talk. I talked for 30 minutes that night and had another 3,000 steps, so I sent another e-mail to Donna adding to my total steps for the day. I asked her, "Do you think I might have FitBit OCD?" : ) Donna thinks I could have other obsessions a lot worse than counting steps, so I'll just keep counting. Won't you join me? If it's too hot, go to a mall or fitness center. Start slow if you can barely walk and add 10% a week to your time. You can do this and I love company!
Post your comment below and let me know you are joining me in my walk.
