I am having a problem getting a good one. I bought one from a store and the counts are always off. I bought one from online and it is way to difficult for me and very hard to open the facing. I have an OMRON blood pressure machine so I will look for a pedometer.
I didn't do any walking yesterday or treadmill work. I had a lazy, mostly watch tv kinda day. OMG.. what a wake up call that was! After an entire day I had walked less than 3,000 steps!!
I try to get on my incline trainer for an hour or so every day, but I'll admit that I slack on it quite often so it's been a few times a week lately. Yesterdays pedometer results, even tho it was for a lazy day, showed me that I REALLY need to make the effort to move more and to get on that walking program more consistently!

I wear my pedometer all the time, except for BED. I put it on in the morning, and on a day I am going to work, clear it about 8 pm at night, then track my steps till I get home in the AM. OFTEN over 10,000 steps.
When off, I wear it morning till bedtime, and will not stip till I have 10,000 steps. Amazing how hard it is sometimes to get in my steps, yet, since I have been monitoring, I find I MOVE SO MUCH MORE!!!
MY NEW saying: (borrowed from Delila)
"If you want to do something, you'll find a way, if you don't, you'll find an excuse."
I put mind on when I get out of bed in the AM-wear it until 8 PM and use that number for that day- I clear it and leave it on until bed. ( I don't want to have to come back to the computer late at night :) :) ) those last steps become part of the next day.
I just bought a pedometer! I'm not sure if I want to use it during my incline training/treadmill work tho. I was kind of thinking that maybe I should use it separate and try to aim for 10,000 steps that are additional to my actual exercise steps. How does everyone here use theirs?
