I finally opened the pedometer I bought a couple of months ago. The first day I used it, I could not believe my eyes at the number of steps and the miles completed in my normal day's walk.
In fact, I had to research to make sure it wasn't broken already! (smiling) I learned from a few sources on the internet that one mile equals about 2,000 steps. Well, yesterday, I went my second most-travelled route and nearly fell over when I saw that it was 6708 steps! Who would've guessed! Today, I walked and came home with 13,687 steps completed. It is true what the articles say, that pedometers motivate you to walk more. My October goal is to lose 5 lbs. and I think I will if I walk my patoot off. Have a fun day, sparkfriends.
