Last January, I made a resolution to walk 3 million steps during the year. With the help of a cheap step counter and a spreadsheet, I am happy to say it may have been the first New Years resolution that I actually completed! While preparing a list of resolutions for 2016, the following criteria will help guarantee success:
- Progress must be measurable! - Keep track of your progress periodically to make sure you will hit your goal.
- Goals must be realistic! - My goal of 3 million steps means I had to average 8000 steps per day, about 80 minutes of walking. Anything more than that would have been difficult to achieve.
- You cannot hate the activity! - Reaching your goal will be difficult if you dread putting in the time or effort.
Good luck, stay on target, and you will definitely hit all of your 2016 resolutions!
