My next tracking challenge is to track my steps, aiming for at least 10,000 a day. I am sold on the benefits, but I havenít had much success finding the best way to keep track of those steps. I have tried several pedometers, and they worked for a while. Then they didnít. Part of the problem (well, THE problem) is I just couldnít figure out what to do when it stopped working. I think it had something to do with putting in a new battery and resetting it, but I wasnít very successful. All it all, it was too frustrating (translation: I guess I didnít really want to figure it out), and I gave up.
Fast forward to today, and I have advanced my exercise goals. A major component is getting to that 10,000 steps a day, and I need something to help me count those steps. From what I have read on the boards here, the Fitbit is the next big thing and sounds way better than a pedometer (or counting them up in my head). I have been researching the different ones, and now all I have to do is figure out which is the best buy for me.
I will greatly appreciate any thoughts and recommendations you have on the subject. I am definitely ready to take this next big step (no pun intended!)
