The goal per day is 10,000 steps, which translates to around 5 miles. There are busy days I find reaching that number to be a challenge. My workday breaks have been spent walking around the building as many times as time allows, which helps to increase the number. The picture above shows my step count after my lunch break walk and, if I'm able, I take an afternoon walk. Afterwork I make up the rest by adding as many steps possible. I love to break the 10,000 step mark, a good daily goal.
I get a kick out of watching the number climb on the pedometer, which is a square (6th generation) iPod Nano. I never have made friends with this tiny, hard to handle iPod (I have 3 others so it matters not), but it's perfect as a pedometer. The point is to use whatever incentive works best to get you moving. It's entertaining (and rewarding) to watch the step number climb and to see just how far I can go.
Do you track your exercise in anyway? Does it help as an incentive? This is the perfect time of year to get your walk on!
