My pedometer

Monday, July 13, 2009

I received a pedometer while volunteering at the MPI convention that is in town. It is to encourage being green and minimizing greenhouse gases by walking whenever possible. I volunteered for the Fun Run this morning and afterwards, I checked my pedometer and had walked nearly 4 miles. Awesome-no treadmill for me today. Since I still wanted to make my step class, I kept the pedometer on to see what it would tell me. It seems my step class is the equivelent of walking a little over three miles. So at 16,000 + steps, 7 + miles and 450 calories (according to the mighty pedometer) not including my cardio for step-I am done for the day and am really considering doing the Fun Run they have tomorrow morning. 5am is awfully early. It will depend on my knees I think. OH WAIT!! I still have to do my Quickfire Challenge.

    OK -- you knew all about the wonders of food scales for portion control before I figured it out (thanks for dropping by my blog and your nice comments) and now you've acquired a pedometer too! Guess I'll have to investigate this gizmo as well!
