I am trying to increase my steps.
I did barely any walking for the last 4 months so I have upped it this month and Im trying to do at least 5000 steps a day for the month to get me into the habit of doing it and then with a goal to increase it next month again. So I figured that 5,000 steps over the month (with one day off a week!) should be around 130,000 steps

April 1 - 1,515
April 2 - 12,609
April 3 - 4,957
April 4 - self care day - didn't wear Fitbit
April 5 - 5940

Total so far - 25,021

Everyone looks like they're doing really well with their exercise. As for me, I'm struggling to get myself motivated to get moving. I'm thinking of buying a Fitbit like LittleLostMe has done. Maybe that will help. The weather was very nice today and I managed to get walk in.

April goal: 400 min and exercise 11 days for at least 20 min per session

12: 40 walk (40/400); 1/11 days

Gardenerjoy: Hopefully it will help with the motivation like it did for you. Fitbit will probably have a sale on for Mother's Day so I think I will buy one then.

April goal: 400 min and exercise 11 days for at least 20 min per session

12: 40 walk (40/400); 1/11 days
