I'm so excited! My Spark friend L*I*T*A helped me find a solution to my dilemma of doing water exercise plus walking 2,000+ steps during the day. She directed me to the following website:
This website states that 10 minutes of moderate exercise = 1000 steps and 10 minutes of vigorous exercise = 2,000 steps. This means that when I do water jogging/water aerobics for 90 minutes that the minimum I do is 9 x 1,000 steps or 9,000 steps! If I add in the 2,000 additional steps I've actually done 11,000 steps! That's a lot of steps!
I'm relieved that I have this conversion chart so I don't have to kill myself doing so much exercise!
