Fitness Blog

13783 was my Fitbit step count for last night. I, Andrea M username PoeDaughter, am on track for a Ten K Steps a day fitness plan for the Ten K Steps a day group on my profile. I did the 45 minutes treadmill walking with hand weights, and 15 minutes on the fitness bike that is the normal amount needed for 10,000 steps daily. Ten thousand steps a day was supported by fitness studies researched by the U.S. Surgeon General (2001 and 2007) A daily target of 10,000 steps was first proposed. The target has been recommended by the US Surgeon General and by the UK Department of Health. ( Pedometer entry 2013) to be the normal step count amount needed to maintain and increase fitness, and is calculated by Fitbit here on the fitness section Sparkpeople site. I first started doing 10 k steps a day 5 days a week on Sparkpeople in 9/6/2010, and have not stopped any week in any year since that date. My comments on my profile reach to that date, as well.
