Day off from working out ...but did manage to do some strenght and toning around the office just to make sure I get something in on my day off lunges and squats and stuff ...nothing big ...
but back to my cardio tomorrow ...slowly building up again ...
I figure I would make wed and sundays my days off for now ...and work on mon tue thur fri and sat ..if I can keep that schedule for cardio I would be happy and the off days some pilates and yoga or light stretching ..

Have to start somewhere right...

Thanks ...for clarifing that ...
So I will continue to track my steps ...as I have set my goal to 10,000.00 daily and if I can do that and yoga and speed walking that would be great ...but to get to 10,000 daily is hard as I have a desk job but I get up and find reasons to walk lol...

Thanks so much ...just thinking every little bit counts to a better you ....

"All day every day" steps are not to be tracked as calories burned, no. You should only enter into calories burned the things you do "for exercise". If you take walks, you can track those by pace rather than steps.

There is a step tracker for your daily number of steps in the fitness page setup. But it doesn't correlate to calories burned.

On average though, people tend to burn around 100cal per mile, and 10,000 steps is approximately 5 miles.

Hello There
Hope everyone is well and happy ..spring is slowly on it's way cannot wait back to speed walking at lunch outside hurrraaaayyyyy...
So I have a question ......I track my steps everyday ...my goal is 10,000 steps a day ...how can I log this to see how many calories you burn ...
Does this count as calories burned in combination with regular speed walking of course ...
Any suggestions ....
Had afew set backs and now going at it again slowly but I wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions.

Thaks
