I have a stepper--My daughter gave it to me.
Her other half is a Doctor at the Cleveland Clinic.
If they get 10,000 steps everyday, they get a discount on their health care.
I was impressed-totally!
So, she set it for me-----I clipped it on----and the 1st week, I got my 10,000 steps daily.
I get on my Dreadmill daily, so I thought this would be good---just dive right in!
After about 7 days, I was limping----
The walking outside was destroying my rt. foot!
I had to cut back----5000 steps were achievable without pain----
This is about 2 mos later----and I am back up to the 10,000 daily steps-
I've learned that 30 minutes on the treadmill --is about 2500 steps----
Walking the dog is about 700 steps -
Getting 5000 steps by noon is important to achieve the 10,000 by the day's end-
A walk before supper will help grab some fast steps---
Cutting grass is the best way to see the stepper really climb fast!---
Most days I have to get back on the Dreadmill after dinner---('specially if there was no grass cutting that day!)-
Some days , I have to take the Germans out and walk around the property---that will bring 2-300 steps when I'm nearly there--
Do I like this stepper?
Well, it sure does show me how sedentary I was---
The stepper really does encourage you to move ------
Always, I am the only one out walking on our back road----I find that a tad strange!
Where are all my neighbours?
Why aren't they moving and grooving too?
Isn't life strange???
--GO WALK---GET OUT THERE!!!!--Your body will thank-you!
