This was a huge challenge for me yesterday. I only had 3k steps in by the end of the day. I spent most the day sitting and watching the news. I am going to make up for it. Going to try to spend most if the day today cleaning and moving.

Stay safe everyone, Sandy hit down hard.

Please excuse any typos as I am posting from my iPad.

Walk in Place or Try a Leslie Sansone walk DVD, her web-site has a few so does Youtube & Netflix.
Good job on keeping with the 10,000 steps... emoticon emoticon

I completely understand your problem. I feel the same way. I sometimes make a game of running somewhere in the house to get something and go up and down the stairs several times in between. It sounds stupid but it keeps me going when unable to get out.

I use the walking DVD'S by Leslie Sansome, that is if you have power to watch them. The other, again assuming we have power is, if watching TV, every commercial get up, and walk on the spot. Hope this helps.

Good luck on your goal. I walk around the house with a book and while I'm on the phone. Pam

I've found that I've been able to easily reach my 10,000 step goal when I'm out. On work days, I reach it by 5pm. Even on my days off, I'll go walk to the local grocery store- or even drive to Target or Walmart to get my steps in.

At home, however, I'm VERY lazy. I literally have to FORCE myself to do any amount of walking. (And it doesn't help that at this moment, I'm waiting for the Advil to kick in and get rid of this headache). With Hurricane Sandy coming through, I'm probably going to be stuck home for the next two days with no escape. I've been on a streak of reaching at LEAST 10,000 steps a day every day in October, and I want to keep it up. I just need to figure out fun ways to get the steps in without driving myself crazy by marching in place in front of the TV- assuming we don't lose power.
