My favorite site to calculate is on Walk for Life.... for me I have a 2feet 6 in stride and at 5280 feet per mile that takes me to every 2112 steps I take equals 1 mile. So for me 5miles is 10,500 steps.

here is the link

http://www.walk4life.com/customerservice
/forms_stepstomiles.aspx


I use the cheap 4$ pedometers and keep 2 extras on hand...I also keep dropping mine. I use GoWalking, but on the site above they also sell all diffent kinds of pedometers and heart monitors

It came from the University Hospital when I went in for my evaluation for gastric bypass..it has no name brand on it..anywhere..I keep dropping it and I'm afraid I will break it..I have had two others, different kinds and they don't work near as well! Sorry, but you can buy them for $20 the ones that you can measure your steps and input it..but again, I like this one much better..maybe I can ask them for another one..ha!! I did after all sign up to be their guinea pig testing dummy for gastric bypass!

This a site I found that states its between 3.5 and 4 miles..but again..we are talking different strides for different people??? I put in my stride and it tells me how far I have walked, how many minutes, how many calories ...3717 steps & 1.93 miles in 37 min..and says 307 calories.. so that would mean I would have to walk 18,500 to hit 5 miles..bet it doesn't take you all that long! ha!!

Sarah.....10,000 steps is approximatly 5 miles...for me it takes me 10250 to get my 5miles...I have short legs. The average is it takes 2000 steps to make one mile. It all depends on your stride length.

I think a mile is about 2000 steps. Not positive but that is about right for me.

I'm with Heather - I'm a Diet Coke girl, no coffee ...however, I started limiting my intake after I realized one day I was consuming a 6 pack of Diet Coke every day! Yikes!!! I'm quite sure I pickled my guts. Since I'm on winter break I can treat myself today to 1 can of it, then I have to drink water the rest of the day.

Gene,,,,how many miles is 10,000 steps?????
Nobody will answer me. I am guessing it is really close to 3 miles. I am wearing the old pedometer and trying to figure this out because I am sure I can't do it without the treadmill.

The older I get the harder it is for me to hold my water! I've had four cups of coffee and 6 cups of water so far and almost as many trips to the restroom down the hall. Oh well, more steps on my pedometer I reckon.

I'm off till night of the 4th...so I have time to visit here with friends...encourage where I can...after-all, I came to Spark People a million years ago to find encouragment and motivation in getting healthy...especially with my nutrition and my fitness...these being areas I was totally bombing in.

I am so glad for a New Year...I'm excited to see what it will bring...to see how strong I can make my body through nutrition and various forms of exercise...and what NEW things I can learn to make my mind and spirit stronger....I am thrilled! I have to hang around with START more...she is amazing...!

Just keep giving me openings and I'll run with them...especially now that I'm drinking back my full-strength coffee...getting sharper by the minute, Kylie!!!
How are you feeling, by the way?? Is it frigid where you are? Are you able to get out and walk today? I'm such a wimp! I know what else I can do!!

What...what Annette!!?? We are breathless with anticipation!!

It's finally a "normal" work day out in my town...I can do surveillence recon...check out the dance studio, the gym, the pool and the martial arts place to see what they all have to offer...I need to get something more going!!
I have fantasies....about being all Kung fu Jane...don't see why not! It would be a long term, several year project...it would certainly force me to keep in shape!! hmmmmmm...I gotta write my day's plan out!

Hey there....I love the smell of coffee too and I like the way it tastes. Smells better though.
Dont bee too hard on yourself about the muffins. Just remember how you feel right now and maybe even write it down so you can remember how you will NEVER do that again.
You guys are too funny.....have a great day.

Thanks for sharing Heather..just jump right back on that horse and fly like the wind..you have the rest of the year to make up for it!! Have your water and quit beating yourself up over it..doesn't do any good!

I love fresh ground fresh brewed coffee..like walking by a Starbucks..mmmm smells sooooo good..but I don't go in. I did have a bag of their Samoan once..it was enough to make you fly for a week on one cup of that stuff!

I too have been making half caff..(i put calf..ha!! emoticon ) and a few days a week I go to a caffeinated tea for breakfast and a few days no caffeine..so I switch it up alot. When I have coffee, I have to have a quarter cup of ff creamer in it..don't like the coffee taste I guess..a little coffee with my cream please..

OK..GOOD MORNING EVERYONE..I think we will have emoticon today..and a temp of -5..oooh..cold..

Thanks! I think just being honest about it is a huge step in completing my journey. I will tell you this: I'll never eat two mcmuffins at the same time again! I feel gross and since I'm so full I can hardly drink the water I got to help me feel better!! emoticon

Every day and every hour is another chance to do something good for myself. I won't dwell on it, I'll just go forward (with help of course from the great people on SP and MMM!!)

I agree! Heather thank you for your honesty! YOU tracked it and admitted here!!! I am so proud of you! I know that seems strange to say cause you just ate two mcmuffins, but there is a real emotion side to weightloss and I think some of us may be familiar with "sneaking" food for years. Lying to others about it, but worst of all lying to ourselves!!!! Heather yo are awesome!

I think I have 2 cups in the mug I use...I need to slowly decrease my coffee intake, because I do drink way too much of it. I just get these huge headaches whenever I try to do it fast! Maybe go to some half and half coffee.

How great that you were honest about it all!! I'm usually perposely oblivious to what the calories are when I go a bit overboard at a fast food place...any restaurant place, really.
Now that you've finished shaking your finger at yourself...get back on track with your eating...maybe walk an extra mile, or do an extra 15 minutes of whatever your workout is...maybe walk somewhere on your lunch break.

OK, I have a truth to tell. I was up in the middle of the night b/c I'm stressed about work. I left the house at 5:30 with my trusty Diet Coke and a plan to stop at my bagel place for my twice weekly whole grain bagel with butter. But, the oven was broken and there were no bagels! So, on down the road I went for another 45 minutes (it's a long commute) and I finally ended up at the McDonalds. Did I get the yogurt parfait? Did I get the fruit and walnut salad? Did I even get one egg McMuffin? No, I got two, yes TWO sausage mcmuffins with egg. Do you have any idea how many calories are in these two stupid muffins? I know now, since I forced myself to track it. 900!!!!! What a waste of my calories for the day!!!! I'll have to eat very lightly and carefully today to get any nutrition in the calories I have left!! So, instead of trying to ignore the fact I ate BOTH OF THEM, I decided to track it, and tell all of you about it. I now have a big bottle of water in front of me, and will drink it to flush the poisons out of my body. It's a new year with a promise to be honest about what I eat and everything else in my life. Thanks for providing the space to talk about it. Here's to a new start!

Good morning you guys! It's actually still the middle of the night here, and I've stayed up entirely too late!! But I had to come check out this shiny new thread!!

Oh and I LOVE coffee...I mean, I really adore it! But it's a one-sided relationship. It doesn't like me any more...I have a bad tummy, so I do hot tea in the mornings. Can I join you coffee lovers with my cup o' tea?!!?

I've always loved the smell of coffee, just not the taste! However, I'll join you here with my cold Diet Coke and say good morning Gab, and good morning to you all! I hope 2008 will bring great luck, prosperity and most of all HEALTH to you all. It's off to work now for me! emoticon I really enjoyed my Christmas vacation!!
