I Need Data-Pedometer

55

This Sparked Me!

I have discovered that I need data, real hard facts, in order to be successful. Having a vague feeling of success, or guessing at how I am doing just doesn't work for me. I thought my exercising 30 minutes every other day was enought to make a difference. NOT. So now I have a pedometer and I was shocked and appalled to realize that I was only walking 2000 steps a day. So now my goal is 8000 steps per day.

    I have my pedometer on from morning until night...7 days a week.
At the end of the day I check my pedometer and put the "steps" in my journal.

    I feel the same in other areas as well. Like how many calories should I eat every day, how many calories to burn to lose 1+ lbs. every week. I always feel like it's a guessing game based on textbook formulas. Where's the body-ometer that tells you calories in, calories out, exercise calories burned? Customized to your body only. Is there such a product?

    Ah, my pedometer.. my just save my life! Why?.. because I want to beat yesterday's steps.. everyday! I'm doing over 13,000 daily.. and honestly.. I'm not THAT active.. I can see where I can do more.. but while doing dishes, brushing my teeth, reading an email on my phone.. I'm moving my legs.. and I'm seeing where it makes a difference! What is cool too is that there is a place on the fitness page of Spark that allows you to track your steps daily too! Good luck!
