Using a pedometer to see how far you are walking
I read Valerie Bertinelli’s book “Losing It: And Gaining My Life Back One Pound at a Time“,
and she mentioned that Jenny Craig has them walk 10,000 steps a day.
I decided it was time to finally buy a pedometer.
This is the one I bought by the way, and it is really nice!
I started tracking my steps and on a computer bound day, I walk about 1200 steps.
On a day like one last week where I went on a field trip with a 5th grade class, I walked 5200.
I have yet to hit 10,000 steps without the treadmill. I am enjoying using the pedometer.
It is small and you can just clip it on somewhere and forget about it.
Over the years I have come to accept that I will not lose weight by diet alone.
As the years continue to pile up slowly, (along with the weight) I knew I had to change something.
How is your weight loss journey going? Are you using a treadmill or a pedometer?
