DAY 6: Tool Tuesday--Pedometer
Tuesday, January 06, 2015
If I am going to keep this blog up for 100 days, I need some framework so I decided that Tuesdays will be the day for discussing the tools I have used to get where I am and that will help me maintain. One of my most important tools is the pedometer. I use a very low tech one that clips onto my waistband and does not connect up with any of my devices. I typically have a goal of 10,000 steps per day and I find that this daily goal keeps me looking for additional opportunities for walking away from my desk whenever possible. If I have had a period of "being off track," the pedometer is one of the first tools I turn to. Just putting it back on and trying to get in the steps (without making any other changes) can get my whole perspective adjusted. Additionally, I like that when I feel tired after a long day, I can see that I did physically move more that day evidenced by a high step count. If you are looking for motivation to move more, I think a pedometer can be a great investment.
