I know exactly what you mean about the pedometer. I found out i was wearing mine. Now I track the time/ speed and miles. I also count how many steps I take in a minute and use that to average my steps by how long I walk.

I have never had any luck with pedometers. They don't track my steps accurately so I don't use them. The only walking I track is when I go outside and walk with my dog and I map my routes and go from there.

Start with small steps and momentum will build. Celebrate moving in the direction of increased happiness now! With a plan and persistence moving towards your goals all things are possible! ♥ From Ask-Angels.com
Much Love & Hugs, Ramona

I count steps and time

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

The best way is to get a heart rate monitor to calculate your calories. Other than that, a common consensus has been to count Leslie Sansone's dvds as low impact aerobics since they are more than just walking with the arm movements and the various leg movements.

I count it....count the steps on my pedometer, and the TIME I do it in! YES, it is cardio!!!

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."

Does doing WATP videos count as cardio? If so how you add it?
