I did it! I finished my step goal for the week yesterday. I am so pumped! I know that it was only 42,000 steps (roughly 6,000 steps a day), but I've had a really rough go of it since the surgery and I've proved to myself that I can finish something that I start.
Research proves that diet and exercise positively effects your mood and right now I'm happier than Richard Simmons in a spandex store. I know that if I just push myself a little bit more, keep striving to hit the little markers, it will give me the confidence to accomplish bigger things.
My step goal this week is 45,000 by Saturday night (about 500 more steps each day than last week). I know that this is not the stuff of legends, but everyone has to start somewhere. This is my chariot of fire.
