I've been using a pedometer for what seems like forever and always tried to get 10k steps. Last year my goal was 12k steps. I got a Fitbit early in December and am having fun trying to keep my steps at 15k a day as well as log as many floors as I can.

On a rest day (or a slack day as I call it) I end up at around 5000 steps, just from moving around the house and pottering about... 5 days a week I commute on foot and generaly rack up 12-13K (my commute is about 5km) steps so I know I have a "surplus" for the weekend. I'm not worried about gttign over 10K every single day without fail.

If I feel like I need more steps I will go for a pleasure stroll through the parklands nearby.

5 MILLION Steps challenge - I am going to take 5 MILLION steps between March 1st 2013 and leaving for Europe (around Easter 2014).

I can't get a ticker to do this so I am stuck updating manually for now (I'll be rounding DOWN to the nearest thousand)

556K down, 4444K to go!

I love mine, it's as natural to wear as my glasses. I've had it for one month. Ten of those days I've hit 10,000 steps. It takes alot of concious effort for me--walking 2 miles at the track, walking the dog about 1/2--1 mile (broken into mini walks). Parking far from the store, walking all around the store and purposely making extra trips through the house for misc. chores. There are many other features of the FITBIT ONE that are great too!

I am still waiting for my replacement Zip to arrive. My job has me moving side to side all day. I do a lot of reaching and stretching as well. None of which counts towards steps. I tried different pedometer apps on my Iphone but they suck the life out of the battery.

I just finished 15 minutes on treadmill and have no idea how many steps that was.

I got a Fitbit 2 weeks ago and so far haven't make it to 10K even on the weekend. It's great though, to see how much (or little) progress I've made. It makes me get up and do something to add more steps, like take the stairs, park further away, walk the dog, etc.

"How do you get your 10,000 steps in on your rest days or do you not worry about it?"

I view it as a goal to shoot for but don't worry about it if I don't have 10,000. I mainly track steps out of curiosity to see what I do from day to day.

If I get to go outside and play with my horses, I definitely get in way over 10,000 steps a day, but if it's raining and cold, I don't get out and it's tough to get those steps in. I have found though that if I do aerobics, I can easily get my steps in! I have a Body Fit armband and I love it! I would highly recommend it. I read that Spark is even letting Body Fit info be synced with them, so that's awesome. I haven't tried it yet, though. emoticon

I am a nurse and I work 12 hour shifts, from 3a-3p on the days that I work i can easily get 10,000 steps. Today I worked and walked on the treadmill, my steps were16,989 steps. I would highly recommend the fitbiyt one. I orginally bought the zip, it worked well but I love the fitbit one so much better. I like the button on the fitbit one instead of ficking the zip to see your steps and stuff

I am totally confused. They say the average woman's stride is 2.5 feet. I took 10 steps and mine was 188 inches, that's a normal walk. That works out to 18 inches. What am I doing wrong?

I'm working up to 10,000/day, but it takes a lot of work. I do 1 1/2 miles on the treadmill, but that's only about 5,000, so I really struggle to get in the other 5,000.

Most days I get 10,000+ but that's doing at least 30 minutes of cardio a day and walking as often as I can around the office. Worst case days, I'll march in place while watching TV. Makes you feel like a giant goober but racks up the steps

This is the second day I've had my fitbit. Yesterday I got to about 5,000 steps, and that included 30 minutes on the treadmill. I spent a few hours on my feet doing housework, and I was surprised that all that shuffling around didn't add up to more steps, because it was tiring.

Today, though, I did my 30 minutes on the treadmill, came to work, sat at my desk for a few hours, then walked the 15 minutes on my break. I'm at 8342 steps right now. So it seems to me it will be very hard to get in 10,000 steps with just everyday "stuff." The 30-minute treadmill walk and the 15-minute break walk really added up the steps.

Which goes to prove another point I've often noticed..... people who work on their feet in "shuffle around" jobs get very tired, rightfully so. But it doesn't seem to translate into exercise. My hair dresser spends 8 hours on her feet. The last thing she wants to do after work is walk. She's tired, but she hasn't burned that many calories. It's not fair, but it seems to be so.

I have been thinking about this very thing.. a family member got me one of those Walmart pedometers for Christmas and I was surprised at how low my numbers are! The highest I've gotten to is 3100 in a day! I haven't been exercising aside from using the stairs at work so I know that's part of it. That and the fact that I work a desk job with little time on my feet between it and 1 hr spent driving in the car every day Mon-Fri!

Oh well.. you do what you can with what you have!! It will be a glorious day if I ever make it to 10,000 steps in a day! But, it's a goal to aim for!

I just started with the fitbit. I love it. I am not consistently getting to 10,000 steps but I can certainly tell you it has increased my awareness and made me more conscientious about getting as close as possible to 10,000 if not 10,0000.

A good pedometer has meant more than anything to me. I am amazed at the difference in my steps during a work day and a weekend. It is not hard for me to do 15,000 steps during a work day (I do walk 60 minutes with my dog every morning) but sometimes difficult for me to do 10,000 on a Saturday or Sunday. But when I check my number of steps, and know that I am going to be logging how many that evening on SP, I know that I am much more active!

You stick to your food calories as per what the food tracker figured out for you.

If you walk 10,000 steps = 5 miles of walking.

So let's look at it a different way. 10,000 steps per day corresponds to about 5 miles (2,000 steps = 1 mile for most people). Hence walking 10,000 fast steps a day burns about 500 calories a day. At 500 calories a day, it takes only a week to add up to the 3500 calories needed to lose one pound.

I've been walking 10,000-15,000 stpes per day for 4 years. The pedometer keeps you accountable. After purchasing cheap ones and being frustrated -I have had an Omron pedometer for about 3 years now

It tracks well, keeps a week worth of history and can work from your pocket, purse, fanny pack, etc. It also doesn't count "jiggles or fidgits" as steps - it is very accurate. And for me - the fact it comes with a leash so I can't use it is even better.

I know how many steps I should have by certain times during the day to walk at least 10,000 so if I don't have them, it makes me get up and get active.

OUTDOORFREAK, you must live in New York or in a big city, where you can actually walk places. I live in the country. If I walked to town, it would be 8 miles each way. Not an option for me. I'm self-employed and need to be home during the day for my job.

But I can see were if you lived in a big city, and walked everywhere -- like when I lived in L.A. -- it would add up. Thanks for sharing.

I have been sick for a bit, so I'm working back up to my 10K steps/day. However, starting has been MUCH easier this time, I think because I've been in the habit of walking for more than a year now.

And I too get in steps by going as many places as possible on foot.

HOTCOFFEE - I walk between 10km - 20km every day...this is not unusual.

All it takes is a focus on walking places you might consider taking motorised options - so...

- walk the stairs rather than taking the elevator
- walk between meetings around the city rather than catching a cab
- walk to the store
- walk to and from the office
- walk to and from the gym
- take a walk at lunchtime

Basically - walk everywhere you need to go during the day and you'll be amazed how easy this can become part of life!

Not only does it save heaps of cash, it burns a TON of calories!

If you go by the way side on an eating bing, just get up and start again. I always say I will be on a diet for the rest of my life because I love food. But since Spark People I can eat the right foods and not get out of control. Keep up the good work no matter what people say about you. Love yourself. Do it for yourself and no one else. This keep me going.

I have used the New Lifestyles pedometer for over 7 years how (the same one). It is more expensive than any one that I have found (54.95) and you can only buy it from their website, but I have not found another one that is as accurate or has not broken. I use the NL-1000. I keep thinking of ordering another one for one reason - after 7 years, the words have rubbed off - other than that it still works perfectly. Needs a battery about every year.

Good Morning... I use the Smart Health watch... It actually takes me a little about 90 minutes to get the 10,000 steps a day outside but indoor walking in place or jogging on my trampoline ONLY about 77 minutes.

I downloaded a free iphone app. Unfortunately, if I keep it running all day, it drains my battery in about four hours. Other than that, I really like it.

I've been monitoring my steps off and on and I've found that my normal daily commute back and forth to work includes over 7,000 steps. (I work in Manhattan and take the subway.) So 10,000 steps is a piece of cake for me. You'd think I'd be thinner and in better shape...

been tracking every day for over a week and today was the lowest - super busy day at work so i barely left my desk (I work from home) and a grand total of 632 steps - thats a major eye opener.

got to get my XXs moving tomorrow

Nobody said you had to workout like a mad-woman EVERY day...you just need to do SOMETHING every day! :)

I love my Omron HJ-720ITC. It tracks steps, aerobic steps, kcals, & miles. It stores 41 days on the pedometer, and you can view up to 7 days. It also has a USB port, so you can download your results periodically. The only negatives are:
1) It's a little pricey. (Mine was gift)
2) The clip is terrible. However you it comes with a cord & a smaller clip, that keeps you from losing it.

I need recommendations for a pedometer. I've tried the $9 and they tend to fall off, or into the toilet. I've tried the $30 watch, but it quitt on me after 3 weeks. Needing suggestions.

Hi, I just started this today, I use to workout regularly but just got out of it. I have a new work out called Turbo Jam but also a air climber which counts my steps and I really need encouragement and was hoping this site would give it to me. 10,000 steps though, really I dont know. But I'm game, I like the saying you placed about our heavenly father, I to believe anything is possible with him being involved with our lives. Hope to chat with you here, maybe with the encouragement I can bring this weight off. Nice to have chatted. Bye
