200 Days Of Walking

On December 22, 2015 I made a goal to myself: I’d walk every day a minimum of 10,000 steps. I don’t stick with workout goals too well historically (does anyone?), but some how this one stuck. March 30th, 2016, I celebrated 100 days of walking.

Friday, July 8th, I crossed 200 days. Somehow….I kept this going!


It isn’t easy though. When it heats up, you really lose the love of walking. My walking partner got a job, then she moved recently. But I kept going. As Spring came, and into summer, I walked alone. The boys getting out of school in June also threw a wrench into it. I found myself making the minimum, but often not much more. I know once Fall comes, and they go back to school, my miles will get bigger again. I miss the cool weather.


Well, there is that!


20K step days are not often, but they sure feel good!


One reason I love living in town is the rail to trail that cuts across town. Out the door, and across town through trees –


Through a park, an arboretum and even along a lake.


In reality, this is most days – The “OK, I made 10,00 steps, I’m going to bed” but it adds up….

In the end…how much did I walk in the last 100 days?

1,172,442 Steps

572.87 Miles

In the last 200 days I did:

2,577, 587 Steps

1,223.95 Miles

I’ll take that. And I’ll see you hopefully at Day 300 and well…maybe 365! If you want to see my daily post on my workout goals & weight loss journey, follow me on Instagram.

  1. I have found from my own journey the more days you get in a row the harder it is to make excuses and not get the 10,000 steps one day. When I first started tracking my steps at the end of 2014, I made it to 71 days and something come up I broke the streak, which led to some 20 odd days of the next two months where I just did not make the 10,000 steps. From 4 July 2015 I decided I was not going to miss a day and have been going ever since.

    Keep up the great work, whether you make 20000 steps or 10001 steps a day you have achieve the goal.

    All the best

  2. Yes! I know in my heart if I miss a day, it’ll lead to missing a ton of days – so it keeps me going! And that is awesome for your count.

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
