I bought a pedometer, but as far as calculating calories, it sucks, so what I do instead is i log my fitness minutes, steps and mileage and let spark people calculate the calories I burned. That's all i can do for now, until i can get a more nicer one.

For the record I step well over 5000 steps per day!!!!!

I'm excited, I'm going to join this goal, too! I just downloaded a pedometer to my iPod. Anyone have suggestions for a good one (preferably free)?

I'm in. I lost my old pedometer and got a new one. Don't like it 'cause I have to take it off to read it. Anyway, I have 5,654 so far today and the day isn't over. My goal is 10,000 too but I like to quilt and that requires more sitting!!

That sounds like a lot of steps in 20 minutes. You should do a test. Check the pedometer, then walk counting steps for a couple of minutes and check again. Did you have to put measurements in yours before you started?

I'm definietly up for the challenge. I plan on stopping by walmart today to buy one. I had one the last time I was on spark but can't find it. I really think it helps!!

Hope you are having a great day!!

Different people will measure this in different ways. For our purposes here, it means 5,000 total steps in a day. I recommend getting an inexpensive pedometer to track your steps. I have one that can go in my pocket or clip onto my slacks. I put it in my pocket as soon as I get out of bed in the morning and keep it on my person until I go to bed at night. When I first started, I didn't even hit 1,500 some days. I would like to hit 10,000 per day but I haven't done that too often. If you go on a 10-minute walk (or two) it will increase your step count quickly.
