I just joined this team because I decided that having a pedometer would encourage me to get in little bits of activity. And, really, I'm a sucker for numbers. But I do have a question for you all. I have a Omron HJ-113 (it doesn't download to your computer, but is otherwise pretty typical for the line). I had been putting it in my pocket and I noticed that my numbers were getting really high during the day.
Well, it turns out that I'm cheating! (Not deliberately) I'm sort of a fidgety person and when I'm sitting I often bounce my leg. I know how annoying that can be, so I don't let myself do it when I'm sitting with someone, but I do it ALL the time at work where I sit alone. Well, apparently in one hour I racked up 3000+ steps just sitting at my desk.
Does anyone else do this? Is there a way to wear the pedometer so that it doesn't record my fidgety leg? Maybe a different brand that is better for someone crazy like me?
I keep taking it out of my pocket and putting it on my desk when I'm just sitting, but I forget often and then rack up another 1000 feet.
