Bleah, where is everybody? Of course I haven't been here either...a month ago my last post!
I just have to record this - 22,113 steps today, 8224 aerobic (a lot of reggae dancing), which added up to 590 calories burned and 8.37 miles walked.
Now if I didn't destroy that burn with the Indian dinner we had (shrimp in coconut/tamarind sauce, lamb with peppers and onions), it should be a successful day and fun too!

Frustrated right now because I'm not having time or energy to run, but I try to get in small walks...

Went for my cholesterol blood test today. Let's see what happens. I'm seeing the doctor next week
We'll see what he decides about BP medication. Hope not to have to go back to it... but if he says I have to, I guess I'll have to.
Walked 13000 steps both yesterday and today

I'm only logging exercise these days. When I log food, I focus on food too much. But am managing it OK...
Two bad walking days - 5353 steps yesterday, 4946 the day before. No aerobic steps, just back and forth...
I'm relatively happy maintaining at 137-138...but am beginning to want to go a bit lower...will see what happens when things "slow down." If ever...

It's been a good walking week! An average of 11500 steps a day.
I must say I'm not putting as much time into SP as I used to. Just sticking to entering what I eat and logging in my exercise. I haven't lost a gram in almost two months, so I guess I'll have to accept that 69kilos is my OK weight. It feels rather good, actually although they say I should be a bit slimmer (BMI and such) but I feel fine and the only way I could lose would be to eat less and I'm not prepared to do that.
So there it is.

I did put my steps on my spark fitness page so I am not a total loss...record is not too bad! Weather is getting better here and I sure hope it stays that way for a while! emoticon

At last...back to a long walk! 9989 steps today, 7364 brisk walking (albeit 18-20 minutes per mile which is slower than running...but still...)

Yesterday was statically exhausting but the music went well. emoticon

In my pocket, or clipped onto the edge of my underpants/pants/whatever I'm wearing on the bottom. I've found it's more secure if I put the clip on the outside of the waistband with the face of the pedometer up against MOI.

The best place for me is in my pocket. But this only relates to the Omron pedometer. Other pedometers have always been quite unreliable and irregular for me.

You ladies put me to shame! But you're also inspiring me.
Still have on my pajamas, but I already have my pedometer on. Where do you find is the best place to put it or wear it? I find it responds differently, not working so well sometimes.
Looking forward to stepping lively today!!!

Taking it now while I can, since I have to do choir rehearsal tonight - and Palm Sunday/Holy Week are breathing down our necks!

Aerobic = 6240; 4910.

At the moment, my pedometer says 20915 steps.
I did take two leisurely but long walks today, with one of my friends. We sat at a café for a long while in between.

Didn't put the pedometer on until I went out for my walk--logged about 3800 steps on the walk.

My Saturday steps - 5124. Very busy day with little or no opportunity for cardio...the next few weeks are going to be like that but I will work against it. Palm Sunday, new Bishop's ordination, Holy Week, Easter coming up...

Yes, awareness helps a lot. Takes a while to develop new habits of moving rather than not moving...
So far today, 9849 steps - I still might get a few more in, going up and down stairs...
7229 aerobic - that was from the actual exercise.

About 5000. I have a desk job, but I try to walk to speak with others instead of telephoning. I need to put more effort into moving. I have to REMEMBER to get up and move some more.

Forgot to clip on the pedometer today emoticon Probably would have been a low steps day, though--lots of desk work.

I walked 14000, exactly 14275 steps today.
I know that tomorrow will be a no step day as we are driving to Normandy to check out the wedding dinner at the caterer's.
So it'll be food and no walking. So I'll have to make up for it on Sunday!

Lynn, 100 steps (in your car) compared to the 7500 you walked, is just peanuts. There will always be some errors, even if you count the steps yourself. The important thing is that you wear the same pedometer and the ratio of error is pretty small.
When I say I walked 14000 steps, like today, it probably means plus or minus 1000 steps, which doesn't make much difference.
It does give you a fairly accurate idea of what you've been doing.
If you generally walk 7500steps a day, it would be really easy to add some 3500 more steps, walking around your home while you're on the phone or around your garden, or along the aisles at the supermarket.

And Sara, tomorrow will be better!

Strapped on the new pedometer today and wore it through the day--lounging on the couch right now.

About 7500 steps. I did notice that it recorded "steps" when I was in the car--about 100 steps for my 25 minutes drive to work.

So, the 7500 included a 25 minute walk plus a more active than usual day at work plus an errand after work.
