Welcome. One thing that really helps is to add 200 steps a day each week until you reach your goal. It isn't that hard to add 200 and you can get that by parking farther, walking 2-3 minutes, or even marching while brushing your teeth.
Adding the 200 per week will bring you to your goal in just a few weeks as you will find that it works even better than you ever imagined.
I do best when I have a goal. Wearing the pedometer all day, I check it every 4 hours and see how many steps I've walked. Then I can figure out how many I need to walk each 4 hours to reach my goal. It sometimes means taking an extra loop around the halls, run up and down the stairs a couple of times, etc to get my steps in.
Walking as soon as I get home from work before I get distracted by other things helps as well. You can take the kids on a walk with a jogging stroller or use a walking video to get the walks in. On my days off, I can get more steps in early in the morning and set a goal to get a number of steps in before Sparking or doing other fun things.
