Preface
Though, in general, my health has vastly improved from a year ago, one nagging problem remains: I'm too sedentary. Without a job or much of a daily routine beyond my house, I need to get moving. Walking meditation was always one of my favourite means of meditating, but because I live in a cramped-but-busy neighbourhood without sidewalks, it's hard to do around here. But that shouldn't really stop me, should it?

So I've decided to walk 15-30 minutes a day - that is, 15-30 minutes a day just dedicated to walking, on top of any other walking I happen to do. It just happens that for Christmas I bought myself a Casio watch from Japan that functions somewhat like a Fitbit - it tracks one's steps as they walk, using calculations of one's height, weight and stride along with a built-in acceleration sensor. Additionally, it has a dedicated "exercise walk" mode for tracking dedicated walks (as opposed to walking whilst commuting or whatever.) This mode, when activated, counts the minutes and hours actually spent walking. If one stops moving, the clock stops. This is what I'll use to track myself.

Day 1/100
The park I would normally go walking in is still partially flooded from a recent deluge, so I walked in my neighbourhood. I didn't cover much distance and walked at a relatively leisurely speed. Today's results are here . I was so focused on just doing it that I didn't really let my mind wander much. I hope as I get into a routine, I can get back in the habit of actually meditating whilst walking. But just 16 minutes alone put me ahead of the past seven days (the graph, which updates at midnight, represents calories* spent; the display at the bottom also resets at midnight), which I've mostly spent in bed or playing video games.

This is exciting, and while this minor task for myself still has its challenges (I have to deal with moving house later this month, and with severe depression, any physical activity is tough), I'm really looking forward to the benefits that will come from it.

* kcal/kilocalories are equivalent to the calories you see on nutrition labels and the like.

I would like to continue to use this format to keep track if possible. I work quite a few hours (60-70/week) and it is easier to log into here from my phone.
