Begin Walking With Your Clear Goal
If you decide to start walking without a clear goal or we like to call it a clear WHY it is going to be challenging to keep it up.
Consider starting a walking challenge, (we recommend The Step Away From 2020 Challenge - Start Date: September 1 - 7, 2020. This challenge is a great way to get things moving back in the right direction and finish the year on a high note by cranking up your step count now through the final months of the year. It's also a great way to stay socially connected. Join now with my affiliate link - https://bit.ly/3m1NkYG go to the Challenges page to register.

This doesn’t have to be a big challenge or a goal that will be really difficult to complete. You still want to start your journey slow and steady, even just walking every day. Maybe think of a goal that will keep you inspired and motivated, but is a little more than you are walking now.
If you wear your fitness tracker for a few days and find that on average, you walk about 4,500 steps a day, then try to set a goal of walking 6,000 steps a day. It gets you moving more and keeps you motivated, but isn’t so crazy that you feel burnt out.
One of the things that I began when I first starting walking every day was I took a photo and shared it online as a way to keep me inspired about all the beauty on my walks and as a way to have some accountability by sharing my photos. This is a chance for you to be creative as to what works for you.
What is a challenge or goal you have created to begin walking? It would be great to hear about it in the comments below.
