Using the step tracker on the fitness tracker, start keeping track of the number of steps you take. When I first started sparkpeople last year, I was walking about 3000 to 5000 steps per day. I joined a group that that had steps walked as one of their goals. I worked myself up to 10,000 + steps (recommended) within a year's time. Now I find myself walking more than that routinely!
All you need to start upping your steps is a good pair of walking shoes and a pedometer! 312 Getting a dof helped me get out more consistantly! 313
I work as a sales clerk in a store , and to sneak in some extra steps while at work ,I have moved the behind- the- counter trash can further away from where it used to be .This makes me take two extra steps to get to it after each transaction, as our customers usually never want their reciept and it gets thrown away .This has been adding an average of 150 extra steps to my daily count.Extra steps add up !Keep moving any way you can !311
Use any step as a step machine! Step up....step down........Find other things around the house that can be used a s "fitness" equipment. Fill old juice containers that have handles (Tropicana) and use them as weights/kettle bells........Get creative~
