Good for you! That is really positive and I like your attitude. I'm sticking with 10,000 because that has become a push for me. I don't want to lower it because then I will get lazy and not try as hard.
That will also help move my marker across the USA a little faster.

My steps have really fallen off in August. I realize that on an average day without "exercise" I average between 5000 - 6000 steps. My commitment in September is to complete at least 250,000 steps. That means an average of 8,333 per day. That is an average of 33% increase.

Good for you Jen! I am in the same boat, so I'll be by your side. August didn't turn out to be such a good month for me after all, but i am ready to start again in September. We CAN do it! Cynthia

Thanks, Cynthia. I have to make a re-commitment in Sept., though. I thought it would be easier to get exercise in the summertime, but I was so wrong. We take Alex back to college today. I am committing to finishing some big tasks this week, and after Labor Day I am re-committing to me and my program!

It is what I strive for too, Cynthia, but I don't always make it either. It has been especially tough this summer.

I am going to estimate about 7000 yesterday. I will try to wear my pedometer when I can. Thanks for the advice ladies.

If you know how many miles you walked, you could also estimate about 2000 steps per mile. My pace is 2500 per mile, but the standard is considered 2000.

Nickey,

I think you could estimate steps if you have worn your pedometer enough to know how many steps you get in an average day. I have a general idea what an average day is for me when I don't get a chance to walk/elliptical/arc trainer and what a typical day is when I get in an hour of exercise in one of those formats.

Jenn, is there a way to estimate steps? i often am not able to wear my pedometer, like at Frisbee (it falls off). I would really like to contribute every day.
