I do a lot of this type of walking at work during the day if business is slow and I need steps.

Yesterday I went swimming BUT after dinner, I wanted to do 10 minutes of very brisk walking after dinner to bump my metabolism. Ten minutes turned to 20! … I love this extra boost and don't have to go out in the heat for that extra boost!! emoticon

I do a lot of indoor walking in the winter but I like to do some this time of year too, the humidity gets pretty high outside some days.

I got an outdoor walk in today …. But since I retired I saw the scale go UP …
I may take some rests and I like to read BUT get up frequently and MOVE! …

(This also helps with housework, cos you can walk from one end of the house to the other,
picking up things …. and keeping things tidy)

I like this - I have done it for quite some time - we live in a double wide mobile home so I go from one end to the other especially in evening while watching tv - walk all commercials. Now I have a treadmill set up in our dining room so that helps - will start recording here how much I do.

It depends on your personal stride. Everyone takes longer or shorter steps getting them loner or shorter distances. So 2000 steps may get one person a mile, but another 3/4 of a mile.

Buying a cheap step counter is the best way to go. I like my Fitbit zip.

LOL, I do housewalking when I'm really close to a step goal and want to round it off. I pick up an old shoelace and trail it after me, and within seconds, I have a cat following me trying to catch the string.

House walking sounds like a great idea. I think I can make that work. I'll have to deal with DH wondering if I have gone crazy though...I should add a dust mop while I'm at it (tile floors)

I'll check back

My apartment is so small, not a lot of walking space but I'm going to see how many steps I can get in a day while walking around it. Will try for 10 minutes and see how I do.

Sometimes, if I have let my dishes pile up, I walk in place while washing them. Could be up to a 20 minute walk. That's a lot of dishes!! I will take time in between every clean dish to take a couple step to the draining rack then a couple step back to the sink as will as staying in place.

I have a version of this... when walking tv, I climb the stairs (17steps ) 3 times every time commercials come on. The first 2 are easy, but I can really feel it in my calves the third time.

House walking is actually a thing!

People make paths or circuits in their homes and walk them repeatedly for exercise. I have a small ranch home and still can do this.

Try as many minutes as you feel comfortable with and post here. Great upbeat music always is a plus!
