    I finished yesterday with 14,000+ steps on my FitBit. It's lunchtime now and I'm already over 8,000 thanks to today's walk. I'm loving this challenge for keeping me motivated to walk everyday, and to go just a bit further every day too!

    Beautiful day today, it was really cold this morning so I had to wait till a reasonable temperature came around. I finally got a walk in when it reached 35*F.

    Wow. I haven't yet managed 20000 in a day.

    lol. You'll get there if you keep up the work and motivation! :)
    Try some of the usual tips you see, like parking further away from wherever you're going for the extra few steps. Take stairs instead of elevators, and so on. :)
    On my breakfast and lunch and evening breaks in work, for the last 5-10 mins of them, I go running up and down the stairs (some of the staff probably think i'm weird, if any notice i'm doing it xD), from the ground floor to the roof, which is 132 stairs in total. And I could do that 1-3 times depending on my mood / tiredness and how much time i have left. lol. Always taking 2 stairs/steps at a time lol.
    So any stairs or hills or slopes /etc you find, walk up 'em! :smiley:

    I'll be updating my first post with each day's steps, if anyone's interested in following it. xD

    I also do bits of running throughout the day, sometimes up the 6 flights of stairs in work. Other times just short bursts of it while walking, and sometimes for a mile or two on the treadmill at the gym. (I don't carry my phone on the treadmill at the gym, so for today's steps, there's about a mile of running left out of that too)

    I'm in. Started using my fitbit again and also signed up for their challenges too. Brilliant motivational tool even if you are just challenging yourself. Often find myself walking down the corridors for no particular reason other than to increase steps!!

    I'm consistently beating my general 7,000 steps per day goal, so I'm upping it to 8,000 today. Wish me luck!

    I should be joining but I will only do it on the treadmill since there is bunch of snow and it too cold and slippery.
