Step Counter

I'm using a step counter. Part of me is just curious as to how much exercise I get each day from just normal life. I plan on taking it to Florida and walking as much as possible up and down those sandy beaches.

Here's how the day broke down:

7:30 kids awake- 986 steps already taken

9:45 house work done (mostly)- 3355 steps taken

11:30 Finished working in the garden and noticed that the thing had reset itself- 335 steps taken

Took the step counter off until about 2:00 because it was bothering me.

Went to the bank, CVS, made dinner, had guests over, walked baby John up and down the side walk- 3004 steps taken.

8:00-9:00 Went to water aerobics.

According to my calculations I exceeded the recommended 10,000 steps, walked over 2 miles and burned something like 200 calories. I should be a waif if it weren't for those Mother's Day desserts.

Good job doing over 10,000 steps... that is impressive! Where did you get yours? I got one for free, but couldn't figure out how to get it to work. I would love to know how many steps I take in a day!

That's a great idea. Then when the OBGyn says, "Do you exercise?" my answer of, "I chase kids all day" would actually mean something!

I have one of those, but have never been able to make it work properly. It's a great idea though.

Thanks for the kind words about my pictures. It means a lot.

Yes - why aren't all mom's waifs? Those kids never stop!

Yes, if only those desserts weren't around...

I used to wear mine daily as well...I'll have to dig it back out.
