Pedometer Adventures

Still figuring out how to live with new pedometer... emoticon

I lost it after half a day - fell off my jeans getting out of the Mustang...I was SOOOO bummed! Was ready to jet back to Walmart and get another one when I found it on the lawn by the driveway emoticon

OK, so clipping to my jeans is not for my lifestyle. On to Alternate Plan B.

Discovered that my Lee Riders have a mini pocket on the right hip above the regular pocket.

(And I've been wearing this brand for how long??? emoticon )

Is perfect size for pedometer!! or so I thought....I guess it would be if I wasn't compelled to fish it out of my pocket every time I walked a bit 'more'. ... I need to squeeze it out of my pocket (think like toothpaste). Wasn't racking up the steps like I so excitedly anticipated emoticon WTH???

Figured out that I've been resetting it to zero when I squeezed it out of my pocket. Argh!!!

OK. On to Alternate Plan C: Put in big pocket.

By this time it's after dinner. Day 2 walking around neighborhood with DD#1 & doggies. emoticon emoticon emoticon Altho we went farther than last nite so we could make the darn thing register 1 whole mile, still ended up with .9 emoticon

I have high hopes today for my trusty new friend emoticon

    Try clipping it to your bra. That's what I do.

    I had a similar almost-lost episode last week. I changed the battery in the SP tracker because it was no longer syncing, and that fixed it right away and uploaded a bunch of days--that's good. But I put the back on wrong and couldn't figure out why the clip was sticking out just a bit--thought maybe I had broken it. I clipped it to my shoe and went for a walk and came back with just the clip on my shoe. Luckily I found it about a week later and its all good. Figured out the clip has to go in before the back is twisted back on.

    I have yet to find a pedometer that works well for me. I hope it this one works, once you figure out the best placement for it. emoticon
