re-evalueating my steps.
Monday, September 27, 2010
for along time i have not been wearing my pedometer while i was on exercise ban i did what the dr said and did no exercise even though i was still walking to and from school etc. i didn´t see it as exercise but part of normal day to day life.i have a couple of spark friends who said i should have tracked it as exercise but i never did as i didn´t see it as that.now i am sorry i didn´t. i have missed 1000´s and 1000´s exercise minutes because of it,well today i put on my pedometer just going back and forth from the school 3 times ,going to my drs and going shopping.nothing extra,no extra exercise or anything have i done18,919 steps so far.(so much for gentle exercise.i per posed with another sparker who is having problems getting her walking in that we can do it together and we could both try and get 5,000 steps in.looks like that will have to be re evaluate.shall i now go for the 10,000steps per day instead of 5,000 or be more adventerous and go for 15,000 steps a day.before my op and exercise ban etc i always tried for over 20,000 steps a day but more often than not it was over 25,000steps a day.i still have a long way to go to get back there but at least i know why i get tired doing what i see as nothing when really it was the exercise that is making me tired and that what i have been doing on a daily basis was not nothing.
