I walk a circuit around my living room, kitchen, stairs and both bedrooms everyday after dark to get in my steps for the day. I will be wearing out the carpet before spring gets here.

Oh yes. My fitbit definitely pushes me to exercise more! Moving more is good, and so is the extra motivation the bit gives you. I just have to be careful not to let the enthusiasm the fitbit inspires overwhelm my sense of reason!. I worked out so much the first week I got my fitbit that I injured myself! I ended up with a terrible case of shin splints. I have heard other people complaining about injured knees as well from climbing stairs. Nothing destroys your momentum faster than an injury!

I am another one that will try to get in more steps so I can hit my goal. The days I hit the treadmill after work, I can almost always make 10,000. Other days are a LOT harder.

There have been days I would have looked like a hamster in a wheel if someone have seen my short circular paths I was taking to get the steps in.

welcome. I am one who now goes out of my way to get extra steps in. Parking further away in the parking lot then going up every aisle in the store whether I need something there or not. Those steps really rack up that way

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

Hi everyone! I am not in the group and so excited to be an owner of the fitbit! I love mine, but I wish that I had one that woke me up with the silent alarm. But, I feel great that I am getting out there and being more active!

Is it common for people to go out of their way to get more steps? I did my first day! I was walking around the house finding more chores to do, just to add steps and calories burned!
