I use the moves app on the iphone. Its great if you are moving and walking distances, but if you are just looking for steps around the house or within a small area it doesn't count it. It runs off a gps and looks at the distance you went in order to calculate the steps. I am just building up to the 10000 a day so I think I will start wearing a basic pedometer as well just to get my numbers up for now.

I have lost one and broke another so I no longer have a step counter. But I know from experience that by just going to work I would step the 10,000 steps -I move around a lot in the kitchen - I am moving the whole time I work my 8 -10 hours days not to mention the extra daily walks I took.
Now that work is finish it will be difficult to determine my steps - I might have to buy another step counter to put in my pocket.

I usually get 10,000 or more in a day. At work I can get a close to or more than 10,000 depending on how much stuff I have to do.

I dont think my stept count is really accurate unless its in a pant pocket or my hand.

the rain has stopped - I think I will go back outside for a stroll around Nexen beach.
I love walking next to the ocean.

I use the Fitbit One and I absolutely love it. Since the sleep tracking is important to me, I never take it off except to recharge it or change it from one piece of clothing to another. I can't recommend it enough. It is very motivating for my. My readings for yesterday were:
10,385 steps
12 floors climbed
4.23 miles
1,931 calories burned
Active score of 636 out of 1,000.

My sleep was 95% effective, meaning I woke up enough not to get 100%, but not so much it destroyed what sleeping is supposed to do.


The only goal I haven't reached is an active score of 1,000.

Keeping active in the right ways are important for me because of my chronic pain. The days I am active without lifting anything I do very, very well when measuring pain.

i usually get to or close to 10,000 steps each day. I put the pedometer on when I get out of bed and take it from there.

Five miles is the suggested distance. Of course, that depends on your stride length, etc. I'm not sure it matters at all if you walk 5 miles or 4 miles with 10,000 steps. It is the number of times your feet hit the ground.

I wear a pedometer all day and it does take a lot of effort to get to that goal. It is adding steps in the morning, marching in place at times, taking walks in the evening, even pacing while talking on the phone. When I'm at work, I have no problem getting my steps for the day but on my days off, it is true, if I don't make a big effort, I get about 4,000 steps.

10,000 STEPS ARE SUPPOSED TO EQUAL 5 MILES. I WEAR MY PEDOMETER ALL DAY TOO BUT AVERAGE ONLY AROUND 4000 STEPS. I NEED TO WALK MORE.

I WEAR A PEDOMETER ALL DAY LONG AND GENERALLY WALK 16,000+ STEPS
A DAY. CAN ANYONE TELL ME HOW MANY MILES 10,000 STEPS EQUALS OUT TO?
