This week, I followed my normal routine without adding steps. Here’s what I got:
Sat, Feb 16: 7000
Sunday, Feb 17: 10, 176
Mon, Feb. 18: 7732
Tue, Feb 19: 6748
Wed, Feb 20, 10, 676
Thu, Feb 21, 7235
Fri, Feb 22: 11,304
Week: 60874 steps, avg 8700 per day.
I need to add 1500 steps a day to average 10000 per day. 2 months ago
Sunday, Feb 17: 10,176 steps. There may be a few more before bed, but I won’t count them. 3 months ago
I bought a pedometer. I told him I wanted to work up to walking 10,000 healthy steps a day. He said “How many do you think you walk now?” Since I have problem feet that limit my walking, I had no idea, but I was thinking maybe 2000. I programmed my pedometer today, and did not start wearing it until 11:00 a.m., so I missed any steps I had taken since 6:30 a.m.
In the 11 hours I have been wearing it I have taken a nap and gone to a movie, so it has not been a big walking day. Still, I have walked 7003 steps. I could not believe it, and I actually tried a couple of times counting and seeing if the pedometer matched my count. It was actually a little behind me . . . I’d count 24 and it had recorded 20. So it’s really accurate or even undercounting my steps.
Off to a good start! 3 months ago
it always will be 7 000 or more…i’ll do my best but its not a short time goal 3 months ago
I’ve relapsed a lot and I’m now rather out of condition. I did feel better when I was doing this regularly and I do have plenty of spare time (at least until I get back in work). 4 months ago
with a different one, at least for the time being.

Walked 1.3 miles (according to http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/) or 2825 steps (according to my personal pedometer) on a very pleasant fall evening. smile7 months ago
Walked 1.4 miles (according to http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/) on a very pleasant fall evening. smile8 months ago
Apparently, given my petite stature – & thus my short legs – I walk 2200 steps in any given flat-surface mile. (I wonder if this is “high” or “low”—or if it matters? wry grin)
In any case, I took the pedometer on vacation with me, & was pleased (sometimes quite amazed) at how many steps added up each day. smile
- Typical Day: 11-13K steps, on average
- Highest Days: just over 22K steps! (I achieved this twice) 8 months ago
it cools down here (October? November?) I’m going to start working toward 10,000 again. I was exercising on the elliptical at the small gym at work, but there’s no air conditioning in there, just these high-volumen fans. One day last week, I overdid it, and when I got off, I felt exhausted and overheated. I drank about a gallon of water, but it wasn’t helping much, so I just sort of tried to wait it out in the dressing room. It was hot in there, too, so I decided to drive home. I blasted the airconditioner, but by about a mile, I was cotton-mouthed and feeling woozy. I stopped at Wendy’s but was too tired to get out of the car. So I went through the drive-through asking for water. The worker was only allowed to give me a dixie cup worth of water, so I just sat there at the window until the manager came and relented. Finally, I drove home and collapsed in bed and sort of went from hot to freezing cold. The next day I stayed home from work to recover my energy. When that wasn’t working, I called my doc, but he was vacationing. The next day, I went back to work but was still exhausted. So in the evening, I asked my wife to come with me to the ER. We went and they did the usual tests and told me I was okay and to stay out of the heat and drink plenty of fluids. So later I remembered that before my workout I’b been drinking coffee much of the afternoon. So now I’m giving up exercising at the gym and drinking coffee both, at least for the rest of the summer. Today at work, a co-worker told me a 44-year-old father died in the heat the previous day at a Boy Scout overnight trip. Today’s high: 101 degrees. 9 months ago
