No, it is not cheating, I put mine pedometer on before and get out of bed and take it off just before bedtime, every step counts. Happy Walking!

I count all my steps for the day, I thought that it was 10,000 for health and 12,000 - 14,000 for weight loss. I try to get no less then 10,000 but also get my aerobic steps in as well.
I do go on my treadclimber when it's nasty weather out.

Suzy - I do the very same thing. I put mine on before getting out of bed and keep it on until I'm back in bed at night. I count EVERY possible step! :)

I put my pedometer on my pjs first thing in the morning after I get out of bed! Heck, sometimes it stays on until I am getting ready to climb into bed because everyone does random steps within their living space trying to catch up with chores. A step is a step. I do like seeing how many aerobic steps I do compared to my overall total for the day. I have an OMRON that does that.

Tiiffany is right. 10,000 steps is your TOTAL step count for the day, not your exercise/non exercise steps.

It is absolutely NOT cheating. A step is a step is a step. I earn my steps by normal walking, walking on the treadmill, dancing, and walking in place!

I wore my pedometer on the treadmill at the gym today. Then I started to wonder if that is really considered as part of the 10k steps. It definitely got me over the 10k goal, but is it considered cheating though, since I was on a treadmill?
