Synopsis of the Day:
It was a productive stair day. I made my goal of 600 steps a day. The weather has turned cold and snowy. Extra miles added to my day was not practical. However, I made up for it when I arrived home.
My husband had the mats out, so I hit the free weights until my arms were quaking jello. Then I rounded out the workout session with stretching and yoga.
Here is how the day breaks down:
- Backpack 30 lbs
- Climbed 628 stair steps (with pack on)
- Walked 3.10 miles (with pack on)
- Fasted for 18 1/2 hours
- 1-hour upper body strength training and yoga
If you know a person is working hard to get fit, let them know if you see a difference. Just a few words are great positive reinforcement.
My husband does not give out compliments very often so when he does it means something.
When I came home and changed into my workout attire, my husband stopped for a moment. He said he could see a difference; my legs were thinning down. I replied it must be all the stairs. He came back with, “Well whatever you are doing it is working.”
That little statement made a big difference. It spurred me on to workout harder.
We effect those around us. A few kind words can make a significant impact in someone’s journey.
Keep it real. Keep it simple.
Thank you for reading.
