I'm going to try to get back to getting more active outside the home; I was having groceries delivered but they really messed up this last time and I'm tired of that and think I will go back to grocery shopping for myself mostly. My husband and I are making a special trip this morning to get the stuff they did not deliver Monday morning, he already went out Monday afternoon to get the critical stuff. Unfortunately, the grocery store closest to us does not have good meat so we often go to another just for meat and extras so we'll go there now.

I use a pedometer and love it. I use fitbit so it automatically syncs to my pc. Most days I get over 5000, but am trying to get to 7500 per day.

One step closer each day

I had fun measuring specific tasks; I walked from my car to the grocery store, walked down every aisle (and picked stuff :-) through the checkout and then back to the car and it was half a mile! That comes in handy when I am bored and want something "specific" to do for exercise but something that is meaningful too.

I'm hoping to buy a restorator today, www.amazon.com/Drive-Restorator-Bike

. I read all the reviews of the 4-5 kinds at my local Dick's Sporting Goods and am going to make sure I get a slightly more expensive model so it won't have the problems the cheaper ones appear to of not having enough resistance or being too light weight or not enough ground clearance, etc. I joined the Senior Fitness Network for their free newsletter and bought "Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Condiditions" by Kate Lorig; it covers all my various ailments it looks like.

Great idea. Right now I'm not tracking. Would like to start, experiencing pain from RA flare
lately, making it hard to do. Currently only doing five min's of exercise, but looking to start increasing in the next few weeks.

Good for you. I used to log my steps with a pedometer until I didn't have one any more. I now have a new one but will not start logging my steps until after I have recovered from hip surgery. It has been much too hard for me to walk in the last few months.
I think a pedometer is a great motivator to keep a person moving! All the best to you in your stepping efforts. emoticon

I just got a pedometer and started measuring my steps. It is a great motivator for days that I'm feeling bad I can always try to do a few more steps... and days I'm feeling good I try to do alot more steps... is any one else logging their steps? Shall we log them daily on here?

Today I got 6025 and I'm having a great day healthwise...
Tomorrow I hope to match it.
