The Pedometer Challenge is complete! I walked a total of 654,751 steps in 30 days, and averaged 21,825 Steps/day. I earned my $50 Nike gift card (which was awarded to those that averaged 20,000+ steps/day) which I plan to buy some new workout gear.
Hips – 38.5 inches (6/1/11- 39.5 inches) Total lost = 1 inch
Chest – 29.75 inches (6/1/11- 30 inches) Total lost = .25 inch
Waist – 28.75 inches (6/1/11- 29 inches) Total lost = .25 inch
Arm (left) – 10 inches (6/1/11- 10.5 inches) Total lost = .5 inch
Thigh (left) – 22.5 inches (6/1/11- 23.5 inches) Total lost = 1 inch
Calf (left) – 14.5 inches (6/1/11- 14.75 inches) Total lost = .25 inch
I know I didn’t have a huge change but overall I’m happy with my results (total inches loss = 3.25). I have this quote on my desktop and I can’t remember where I found it (please let me know if you can recall it…) ‘There is no single way to get to where you want to be. Likewise, there is no magic pill. It takes time, consistency, attention to detail, and an appreciation of what must get done in the short term in order to attain long-term success.’ I love this! Knowing that everything has to start somewhere… I look forward to changing up my workout routine so that it doesn’t revolve around ‘walking’. How did you do? Did you make it the full 30-days? If you didn’t start the challenge try it for the month of July. Make the commitment and you will see results mentally and physically. Happy July!
