Hi! I just stared wearing a pedometer all day around 10 days ago. I had been kicking butt, going as high as 19,000+ but I'm fading now. Yesterday was over 18,000 but the two days before that were 5000 and 9000. Today is 300 and I don't see myself doing much more. It's COLD here outside Chicago!

Eesh! I haven't posted in here for ages. I'm having problems with my computer so I guess that's my excuse.

10/28 13698 steps

Just go for more steps the next day when you have a bad one. I had a bad day during TOM last week. Barely got 6K in and that was just walking the dog as needed, barely moved around the house.

Thanks!

Yesterday I spent most of the time working on computer problems (that still aren't fixed! Darn computers!) and barely got any steps in at all. That's more like my steps used to be.

13,363 steps on 10/25

I don't work during the week, so my steps come from walking the dog and anything I decide I want to do. I like to walk over to our little dollar store and just browse around then walk home. It is about a mile each way.

Wow! I can't even imagine hitting 17,000. That's fantastic!

I could start posting my steps, but my goal is certainly a lot lower. :-)

I hit 17,134 steps on 10/24, but I was chasing kids at the fall festival last night. I also took the dog for a 2 mile walk about noon yesterday. Anyone using a pedometer ready to start posting their steps per day yet?

I'm aiming for an 8,000 a day average for now. 10,000 is just too ambitious for the moment. Today was a good day though! I don't have my total of course yet, cause I'm still up and moving around, but I used the elliptical and the treadmill today as well as walking around the house. Good exercise day! I'll probably be sore tomorrow, but not "overworked sore".

emoticon Great job!

I finally got my new pedometer and I'm having to work really hard to get close to or beyond 10,000. I normally do a lot of sitting. It's taking me a couple of long walks to get there.

Keep up the good work!

I have been hitting about 12K on a regular basis!! I think I need to step it up to 13K when spring hits. I may be struggling to hit 10K this winter.

How funny! I think the one I have is just way too sensitive to the slightest movement, but I'll have to try that. It definitely overcounts my steps. I had another pedometer before my current one that I had really liked, but after about a year it pretty much went kaput. I can't wait til I get my new one, I've heard good things about it!

I had the same problem, someone in another team told me to try it on my shoe!! It is so much more accurate!! Also, try attaching it to your panties instead of your pants!! I can't wear mine on my jeans because they are too loose in the waist and tight on the hips, but can wear it on my panties!!

That's great! Keep up the good work!

I'm finding that my pedometer isn't very accurate in counting steps. I've ordered a good one so I should be able to get much more accurate counts soon.

Great!! Someone to keep me accountable!! I am going for 10,000 a day, but may up it to 11,000 a day as I am making 10,000 fairly easy most days. Often by 8 pm.

Funny...I just started wearing my pedometer all day today. I don't know what my average steps are because I haven't kept track until now. I'm going to start making sure I walk at least 10,000 steps a day as of now though.

I have noticed that a lot of us are using walking as a big source of exercise. Is anyone up for a pedometer challenge?

I have been doing 10,000 steps + a day. My challenge to any takers is to do 1000 steps more than your current daily average!!
