1 Million Steps for Diabetes UK

Affiliate links used help me to keep my blog running at no cost to my reader.

I walk but not every day, I stand all day but I’m not always moving. This is a challenge that will push me but also be attainable. I decided to join the 1 Million Steps challenge for me & as a way to raise some money for charity. I could have picked a 5, a 10 mile or even a marathon to complete. However I know myself and my body would break before the finish line. I am unhealthy, I eat bad food and I’m overweight. I’m the poster child for becoming Diabetic when they’re older. Enough of the positivity! I’ve got some walking to do!

This isn’t me raising money for a charity because I’m going to need their help someday. I’m taking the 1st step of 1 million little steps. I’m hopeful this is the start of small steps leading to bigger changes. I don’t need to be skinny (not that it’s a bad thing) I want to be stronger. To not be out of breath after a walk or be unable to keep up with my one year old who I wrote about in my The Tiny Human Who Changed Everything post. I don’t want to be the cause of me becoming Type 2 diabetic. I’d go into detail but there is better explained information over on Diabetes UK. If your Type 1 its not a lifestyle issue, it can just happen and only 10% of cases are Type 1. That means the other 90% are theoretically preventable with diet.

1 Million Steps

This is the equivelent of 10870 steps a day for 92 days.

For an average stride that’s 500 miles.

The proclaimers will be with me in spirit!

I will be held accountable by wearing my Fitbit to count steps.

You can follow my progress with my Step Tracker.

You can also donate if you like over on my Just Giving page.

Step Count

Over on Instagram I will post up the previous days count via my Fitbit app. Along with that I’ll update this post so you can see the steps I’m taking along with the new number of steps I’ll need on average to make my goal.
