After some not-so-careful thought, I have decided to reset the ticker and attempt 100,000 steps by Jan 1, 2011.
There are 85 days left in this year, which means I would need to walk 1,176 steps each and every day in order to accomplish this goal, and that is just what I need to do to push myself even further toward walking unassisted.
I am already walking a bunch each day, so I really need to up the ante and kick myself in the ass (so to speak). I also plan to add some strength training, but it's just too complicated to try to make a ticker for that... !
At this point, if my triceps get much bigger, I could just have them transplanted into my legs somewhere for added strength! I already have massive arms for a woman, I don't really need them to get any bigger. At least now I am using different muscles than when I was in the chair and they are getting balanced out, but enough is enough! It's just all the more reason to get those legs stronger and take the focus off my upper body.
So, here goes!
Step count today: 1058
