Another thing I've already started doing, but will include on my list of changes, is walking to work.
It is 5 kms each way. Uphill both ways. I know that makes me sound like I'm 85 and telling tales, but it's a valley!
Walking to work is mostly downhill with a few uphill battles near the end. I have a gym membership and store everything in my locker, then get showered and changed and take the elevator straight up to work! I love this convenience!
Heading home takes a little bit more willpower! It would be so easy to take transit or a cab. But I change, strap on my good boots and hit the pavement every day and it feels so great as soon as I start walking!
I have also started listening to books along the way. I'm finally getting through some books I've had on my list for many years. More on that tomorrow!
I make sure that I charge my Fitbit every night before going to bed. Having these steps counted for me and showing my daily progress is so motivating! I love feeling that little buzz buzz when I hit my daily goal of 12,000 steps! I have also purchased fun bands for it so I can wear it throughout the day. I'm a matchy-matchy girl so this is a small thing that brings me immense pleasure! I have one with a Canadian flag, one with shamrocks, one with moustaches for Movember and more!
Do you use a Fitbit? Does it encourage you? Want to be Fitbit buddies??
