I agree with all that has been said. I find myself competeing with the previous days number on the pedometer to see if I can match or beat it, then if I am low for the day I look for more ways to add steps. I think that's funny that you jog in place when helping your kids, I do that when I cook now or am waiting on the microwave:) I thought I was the only "crazy" one-lol. Bella just runs around in circles everytime I start jogging in place - I guess that's how she is adding steps to her day:)

My pedometer is beginning to feel like an umbilical cord. Out of any gadgets I do believe I like it the best as it gives and overall sense of your day. In order for my husband to wear one it would have to be attached to a TV remote lol.

Great article, it's given me an idea. I may order two pedometers, my husband loves tech gadgets anyway and he's very competitive, especially with me. We could challenge each other to see who gets the most steps, and we would both win!! Thanks!

Isn't that the truth! Wearing this pedometer every day has certainly "motivated" me to move more! Whenever I'm waiting for something (water to boil, popcorn to pop, DD to do a math problem), I jog in place instead of just stand there. My DH looked at me the other day, then looked at my oldest DS, shook his head and said, "She's crazy." LOL
