Every other day I manage just under ten thousand, but I may get ten thousand, but I am not counting the back and forth in my home which is not much walking. However it does count, as I am not floating. Lol

Attach a big dream to a small beginning, and it won't be small for too long.

I find this really hard. I got the SP tracker....I don't always get in 6,000 steps. I know my desk job keeps me down.....I guess I'll have to keep trying!!!

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were going to live forever.

It is health that is real wealth, not pieces of gold and silver.

I got my FitBit 2/14 and started using it 2/15, since then, I have walked at least 10,000 steps a day. Some days are easier than others. I typically get up at 5:15 to walk 2.5 miles which is about half my daily steps. Then, I either go to the gym at lunch and get in a couple of miles, or I walk when I get home. Some days, I really have to push myself to get my steps in, but I have not regretted it at all.

I average 10,000 a day. If I have time for more than that I do a different form of exercise instead to work different muscle groups and add intensity.

Yes, 10000 plus

Real wisdom, God's wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor.

Its almost 9AM and with my morning dog walk and getting to work and setting up, I've already logged 5,000+ steps. (that is if the pedometer app on my phone is accurate)

I know that feeling! Don't give up though! tricks I tried: 1. Drive myself to the mall and walk from Macy's to Penney's (one end to the other). 2. Walk all around the perimeter of my yard at home when it is nice out enjoying the birds and the breeze. 3. Park at the far end of the parking lot at church and walk all across the parking lot to Mass. Just put one foot in front of the other and give yourself permission to try! Good luck!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have a FitBit pedometer and it works great. I have it set pretty low as I am still sgruggling with my arthritis in my hips and knees. So any day I can hit my goal is a good day.

Sedentary jobs seem to be a prime killer of everyone's step counts! I sit at a computer all day as well and it truly does take a lot of extra effort to get my steps in. A couple of tricks I like is to take three 5-minute breaks a day (I call it my "non-smoker" break) and take a lap around my office building. It helps to get the blood flowing again, wakes you up and the short burst of cardio will actually rev your metabolism. Also, if running errands at lunch I park at the back of the parking lot and make sure I get out of the car to grab lunch, run into the bank, etc. NO DRIVE-THRU'S!!

I always walk to the furthest bathroom in my building. Or I walk outside to another building to use the bathroom.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.
