Keep moving forward! That is my mantra. One step in front of the other since walking is the most accessible exercise. Wearing a pedometer full time makes it possible track those steps between the bedroom and the kitchen or bathroom as well as the ‘exercise’ or ‘workout’ steps. One of my biggest excuses used to be that the actual movement of walking was painful. So I avoided it. When I realized that no amount of core strength exercises could overcome walking I knew I had to find a way. Thankfully, I’ve learned by doing that if I don’t get at least 5,000 steps in a day I have more pain and feel generally crappy. Just as painful and crappy as if I get more than 15,000 steps in a day. The pedometer got me started and helped me to identify the personalized activity levels I need to be conscious of to be at my most comfortable.
