My motivation is with my dog. She is annoying until we get “our” daily walk. I love keeping track of my steps, watching my progress across NV. Also, I love learning the little facts on the state of NV in the Walk Around NV program. That’s a BIG motivator for me. Keep on walking!!
My journey started several years ago when I did a 60 mile walk for breast cancer. It took lots of effort to train but it changed my outlook on exercise. Now my pedometer goes on each day without fail. I play golf twice a week, exercise at a gym twice a week & mallwalk. (all with friends)
All these are scheduled so even if I don’t f eel like exercising I do it anyway. I will be 72 years old in May (did I really say that) & my motto in life is ‘I want to wear out, not rust out’.
I love the Walk Around Nevada Program. I became involved in the program to feel better about myself and it was a challenge to me to make time to exercise every day. I am a busy girl, with work and life, so making time to exercise was tough. Since starting the Walk Around Nevada Program, I have counted my steps daily with a pedometer, and have noticed how great I feel when I make my step goal for the day. I challenged myself to walk at least 11000 steps per day and I feel great at the end of the day when I have met that goal. My motivation is more confidence in myself as well as walking is a great way to relax and de-stress and get in my daily exercise. Hope this helps, I love the program.
