steps count whether you are excising or just walking around your house. I count whatever I walk in a day toward my 10000 and am almost always over that unless I take a day off from exercise.

I do use my pedometer on my walks and keep an eye on the clock.....and then convert that info to time for the Fitness Tracker. For me, a mile averages 2000 steps and I fairly consistently walk at approx. 3.3 miles/hr. (18 min miles); some days are slower though.

The Fitness tracker has choices for walking at different speeds, and it only seems to track time- not mileage. So my pedometer steps get converted to the appropriate time for the day. I have another excel file I do mileage in.

For my tracking, I am not trying to follow the 10,000 steps per day.... I can only deal with so much data in my life! lol...

Everyone's step length will be different...as will the speed they walk.
Happy walking!!

I would certainly include the "walking steps" in the "10000 steps" if I were tracking that!!!

I am attempting 10,000 steps a day and also trying to reach 15 miles a week walking. I time my walking miles and record them. I also track my steps recording them as well. I have been including the steps from my timed walks with my daily step count. Does anyone else register their progress this way. In my mind steps are steps but I do want to measure my timed walks. For now, I enter miles and steps. Would like to hear the experiences of others.
