12 Week Fenix Transformation Challenge – Week 7 results

Hello

My weight loss page shows the right trend again this week – down!  I’m not as stressed about the number on the scale this morning because I was quite pleased with the numbers on the tape measure that my personal trainer was showing me on Tuesday night.  But downward trend on the scales IS what I wanted to see, and I’m cheerful.

But a bit of a change of topic:

I have been wearing a pedometer every day since the end of November last year.

Sometimes I get to the end of my day and see less than 4,000 steps and it gives me an indication of how inactive I have been.  It spurs me on to thinking about doing more incidental walking (such as strolling around the block before I buy my sandwich and head back to my desk to work).  It is a very good indication of too many days in a row of being lazy.  If I see a number above 10,000 I still feel excited and pleased.  Months of wearing the pedometer and I still don’t take it for granted, because it certainly isn’t a habit to walk that much every day.  But it tells me where I am at, and that is a good thing.

I have been logging my steps every day onto this website:  http://www.10000steps.org.au

Most days I just log the steps using the iPhone app, and so I rarely look at the cumulative total.  But I logged on this morning, and found the following exciting statistic:

That’s right, I have passed the one million steps mark!  Also my average doesn’t look TOO bad, considering all those days that I have hovered around the 4,000 step mark sitting at my desk all day at work and coming home to sit down again.  So much sitting down!

  2. Hi Sandy! Congrats on the one millions steps! 🙂 When I was on my weight loss journey, I looked for every opportunity to just move. So I’d park far away from the store, or take the stairs, or take the long way to wherever I was headed. Sounds like you’re getting the same idea with walking around the block before getting your sandwich. All movement helps!
    P.S. Your knitted creatures and hat are absolutely adorable! I wish I had the patience and talent for projects like that.
