I prefer to drive instead of walking!”

This was how I thought for many years of my life. Walking was never one of my favorite activity. I would walk if I had to, but not by choice.

It all changed, when I had my first knee replaced. My doctor told me that for the surgery to be truly successful and beneficial, I had to walk at least a mile, twice daily.

I started walking, albeit reluctantly because I didn’t want another surgery. After 3 and a half years, I got my second knee replaced. By that time I had developed a healthy walking routine.
I’d walk 30 minutes early
in the morning, and 30 minutes in the evening.

But my love for walking strengthened when I bought my first Fitbit. Fitbit is an exercise tracker and it records steps and other forms of exercise. It was the first time I wanted to walk, instead of driving. It gave me the incentive to walk 10 k steps daily and then some more.

    1. It’s got to be habit with me now, if I don’t walk them I feel bad, both mentally and physically. I walk inside the house when it’s too hot or raining outside.

  1. I have a fitness watch now my sister gave me and am just getting used to it. I don’t get nearly enough steps in a day… but I am trying to change that.
