10,000 Steps

This Sparked Me!

I find that wearing a pedometer all the time the best way to get in my 10,000 steps. I find myself parking far away, walking while talking on the phone, taking things to co-workers rather than dropping it in the mail. It all adds up to extra steps and extra calories burned.

    I always wear my Omron Pedometer. Rarely get 10,000 steps in a day. Once in a while I come close. I'll keep on trying. It's a habit now to see how far I go every day.

    Iam going to try that. Thanks

    My sister has done 10,000 steps/daily since Jan 1. Reading your comments along with her walking the steps gives me the incentive to buy a pedometer! Thank you! emoticon

    Been wearing an Omron pedi for years. Think I am into my third. Wear most of the time.

    I get very bothered when I wear my pedometer.....I am active and wow I very rarely make it to 10,000

    I agree I wear a fitbit one

    My pedometer is one of the best tools I have!

    I like seeing the number of steps increase through out the day on my FitBit One. emoticon

    I love my pedometer, though it isn't as accurate as I would like. I walk the same route daily, and the steps vary quite a bit, though I know my stride varies also.

    great reminder

    Great idea...the pedometer add incentive to getting in more steps. I need to do this. emoticon

    I also wear a pedometer with the goal of 10,000 steps. My pedometer separates cardio steps so I can track them for fitness. Love my pedometer.
