I felt like I had a great workout yesterday. As a result, I easily surpassed my 12,000 step goal with a total of 12,501 steps. It was one of those days where I felt like perhaps something is clicking with my new routine. Heck, I even gave some thought to upping my step goal, but then I thought better of that idea. I need to just keep building back up, slowly and steadily. I can't get too far ahead of myself. Heck, I do not even know if any of this is actually working because I have not stepped on a scale. (More on that issue in another post).
I'm thinking about adding a few more goals to my daily list. These include: 1) an UP food score of 8.0 or better and 2) setting a work step goal. What I mean by number 2 is setting a goal for how many steps I should take between my work hours of 7:15-4:30. I'm still mulling that one over. I'm not sure what is a reasonable number. As I've learned, some days are better than others, but that article that I posted yesterday has me thinking about ways I can be more active during my work day.
