Walking for Exercise

This guy has been one of my best friends for the past 1.5 years.  I have never been a huge exerciser.  I do power yoga some times, and I will do some intense videos but not on a regular basis. However, my daily friend is my pedometer. 

My goal is to get at least 10,000 steps every day.   Do I do it?  Nope, but most days I do. Even when I don’t quite reach 10,000, I know I took more steps than if I did not wear it.  There is something about seeing the number that encourages me to walk.  It motivates me. I have lost about 10 pounds in the past year.  I am happy about that. It isn’t just the walking.  Because of some health issues I have watched what I eat as well.

It has come to the point that I feel weird when it I don’t have the pedometer on.

If you do get a pedometer I recommend spending a little money on it.  You know I am cheap and love to get great deals, but this is something I would not skimp on. Those cheap ones don’t work.  When you jiggle, it counts steps.  Even riding a car will add steps to your count.  I recommend an Omron.  This one was about $30 at Scheels, a sporting good stores.  It is pretty accurate, and I have been really happy with it.  I am sure you can find it at many other places.  Just Google it.

So do you use a pedometer or do you do something else to stay fit?  Love to hear what you do to stay fit.

Disclaimer:  I do not get any money from any of the companies or products mentioned in this post.  I am just a consumer of Omron and have been very satisfied with my purchase.
