10,000 steps and 10 flights of stairs and 5 miles are my daily goals. One of the unexpected benefits of this approach is that the loathsome work of picking up around the house can be looked at a little more positively as it all counts and on clean-up days I really do clock a lot more steps.
I am going to avoid boring diet talk on this blog because I know (and get why) it pisses people off for lots of good reasons ... and really it is just incredibly uninteresting to everybody but myself. But I will say that I have set myself some ambitious goals this year in what I shall euphemistically call the health department and the good news is that I know when I make a very specific conscious effort in these areas I feel better in all respects.
I am taking a Heart, Mind, Body approach, something a wise aunt once suggested to me (and she knows who she is). I am pretty good at nourishing my mind and my family give me lots of heart ... but even in these areas there is more work to do.
Now I am off to locate and plug in my somewhat neglected cross trainer as I have another 1700 steps to take today, plus some pages to read and small children to cuddle to sleep.
Wishing you all a year that is everything you want it to be.
