Earning My Ears

After quite some time away from running due to injury, I am on the road to returning due to a good doctor. I need to lose this weight I've gained and hope to run the 2016 WDW Half Marathon.
What a great goal! I'm eyeing a DL 10K in my future. 2016 is my plan as well.After quite some time away from running due to injury, I am on the road to returning due to a good doctor. I need to lose this weight I've gained and hope to run the 2016 WDW Half Marathon.
The number that most people aim for is 10,000 steps. I haven't been to WDW, but I know at DLR we average around 20,000 steps a day, sometimes up to 30,000, and I think there is more walking involved at WDW. Generally the theme parks are pretty flat, so I wouldn't be too worried about that, but if you would like to improve your 'hill fitness', you could always try to do a hilly walk or stair climb a couple of times a week. Just walking 10,000 steps most days is not really enough to cause much weight loss, especially if you're not 'dieting' at the same time. But if you're concerned about your weight, it might be best to speak to your doctor or a nutritionist about how you can increase your fitness without losing weight.Despite me working in production and walking at least 4500 steps everyday, according to my Fitbit, I get pretty tired whenever I walk up hills or even up a flight of stairs briskly. I'm not entirely sure how many steps would be a good range to walk everyday to prepare for Disney, but I don't want to arrive and be too tired to do everything I want there. For now, I'll start aiming for at least, hmm, 6000 steps everyday?
I'll have to make sure to hydrate myself more (I'm already always dehydrated) and eat more to make up for the calories lost. I actually probably need to gain a bit of weight.
Good for you! I'm a few years older at 33 but also am determined to get on and lose weight this year. I have a WDW trip booked for 30th Nov and want to be 50 - 55 lbs lighter by then... It seems impossible and it's only day one.Hey all! I'm taking the initiative and am taking the W.I.S.H challenge!
If anybody would like a buddy just let me know! let's support and motivate each other!
