Extra Walking

This Sparked Me!

I always wear a pedometer to work. Its a visual reminder that every step counts.

I don't have time during my work day to go out in the parking lot for a walk, but I sometimes have a few minutes I can spare. I walk up & down the hall.

A few times doing this & I get 1,000 steps! It all adds up!

    I am going to try this out. I have long halls and I'm prone to wondering. Wonder how many steps I can get in a day?

    I am a nurse and walk a lot. I wear a pedometer and found out I have lost as much as 7 miles in a 12 hour shift, altho the usual amount is 3.

    You are so right! Doing this was the way I first got going with my exercise/weight loss plan. It was a great way to get myself going... emoticon
