So how many steps to burn one calorie. Inquiring minds want to know.

Tuesday, March 04, 2014

Since I got my treadmill I have walked everyday. My goal for the
First 30 days is to walk or run for 30 minutes each day. I am happy to say day 4 and I am walking each day for 30 or more minutes.

But now I am wondering how many steps do I need to burn off calories, we'll an article on "livestrong" said if you walk 10,000 steps in a week that would equal 3500 calories. So 70,000 steps = 1 calorie.

For me with 20 lbs to go, that would be 1,400,000 steps. You can look at it two ways: 1st shocked and say think it is impossible or 2nd I didn't get this way over night and it won't go away over night. I prefer the latter. So breaking it out further, I walk 7500 steps a day right now - so that means 187 days......LOL or cry out loud, not sure which.

Because I am not the most patient person in the world, I now know that my 7500 steps a day will not allow the weight to just roll off each day, but a lot of 7500 steps a day will.

Let's go for a walk,
