"One Step at a Time" | Fitness Update

I'm going to be honest here. I've completely fallen off with my fitness journey. Between the changes in the weather, my new YouTube channel and just plain laziness, I haven't felt up to working out. I could very easily wait until it gets warmer to start working out again, but since I'm me, that pretty much means that I'm never working out again.

I'm not really too concerned about working out. I like the way my body looks and I'm not very interested in losing any weight. If you read my last fitness update, you'll remember that "Weight doesn't Matter" and seeing how that is the major motivation for working out, you can see why there's been a lack of exercise. The problem is that without working out that leaves my life in a pretty sedentary state, so I've got to do something.

what to do
I've got to do something, but what?

Naturally, I searched the internet for what to do. And what did I find, you might ask? Howie Mandel walking around in circles on the set of Ellen. Yes, that is probably the weirdest sentence I've ever written and probably even weirder is that his walking around in circles inspired by fitness update. You see, Howie was walking around because he had a goal to take 10,000 steps during the day and he was nowhere near that goal. Why he decided to work towards the goal during the show is another conversation entirely, but it did get me thinking about my own fitness goals.

I don't see myself running a mile anytime soon and I couldn't care less about doing a push-up, but I do want to be more active and the only way to do that is take it one step a time. I got a pedometer app for my phone and am going to use that to track my steps. My ultimate goal probably won't be 10,000 steps every day, but it gives me something to work towards. It also gives me a helpful reminder to get up and walk around. Thank you, Howie Mandel, in your own way you have inspired my fitness journey. I hope that in some way, this post will inspire others as well.

Let me know in the comment section how your fitness journey is going.

See you next time!
