Welcome. I started out by wearing my pedometer a few days to figure out how many steps I was already taking. Then adding steps becomes a challenge. Parking a little farther from work or the entrance to the store, walking to a bathroom on another floor, Delivering things by hand instead of sending them, Getting off the bus a stop before your own all help add up steps. I like to take a walk when I get home from work before I start the evening activities. It helps me get that walk in before lift gets in the way.
Remember 10,000 is a total for the day and not a single walk (unless you want to do this.) Adding 100-200 steps a week to your daily totals can help you get stronger and not hurt yourself.
Looking forward to hearing of your progress. Be sure to post when you hit the 10,000 goal.
