The Little Pedometer that Could
His Lordship, my spouse, got me a pedometer for Christmas. It is made by Omron and displays the number of steps taken in a day, miles walked, aerobic steps, calories burned, and the time. My first day wearing it I went on a long hike and managed about 12,000 steps. But yesterday, I only got a little walk in and by 8:45 pm, I was still 1,500 steps short of my 10,000 step goal. So bring on the steps - up and down the stairs 5 times, pacing while I brushed my teeth, doing lots of little chores etc. In fact, continuous motion for 15 minutes and I had my 10,000. His Lordship was pleased as he hoped it would motivate me to move more and spend less time in front of this computer. I think it is working. So if you need a little motivation, try a pedometer.
