We’ve quickly learned that Jack was the family member with all the bragging rights when it comes to number of steps taken per day. That child has two speeds: fast and asleep. If he’s not sleeping he’s constantly moving. He is the most active child I’ve ever seen.
Andy is a close second. Because of his job, he’s constantly on the go all day, 5 days a week. Anna is neck and neck with Jack and Andy because she loves dancing and riding her bike.
Me, I really have to work at getting my 10,000 steps in a day. I’m behind a desk 40 hours a week so it really has to be deliberate for me. I park as far away as I can in the morning when getting into work, I walk during my 15-minute breaks and occasionally climb the stairs. Then I work out at lunchtime and two to three times a week I work with my personal trainer at Gold’s Gym.
When this challenge came up I was so excited because I love to work out. It truly is my passion. This is kind of gross but I love it…the more I sweat the more I push myself harder. It’s hard to believe that as much as I love to work out I’m so overweight. I am the self-proclaimed “fattest fit girl in America.” I have a blog outside of this blog (that has sadly been neglected, HA!) and the title is “Tales of a Skinny Girl Trapped Inside a Fat Body.” Blogging about fitness and working out has been so therapeutic for me and this challenge, thankfully, is getting me closer to my goals.
