So I broke down. My boys have been rocking their Nike Fuel bands since the holidays. Well my husband prior to the holiday and my son compliments of Santa. Me I got one this weekend. Picked it up Friday. But I didn’t fire it up until Saturday. My hope is that it will help me understand at the end of the day “Did I MOVE enough?”
I have a current workout routine but above and beyond that I don’t really know how much I am moving during the day. I have a desk job. I hammer the keyboard for a living. That sets me up for a lot of sitting. So I really want to know how to maximize my steps each day especially the days I am working. How can I keep the steps up?
The first way is to be AWARE of how many steps I actually have taken in the day. Hence the Nike Fuel Band. Even though I’ve only had for fours days it has been eye opening. There has been a wide discrepancy across the four days.
The one thing I like about walking is that anyone can do it. You don’t need special equipment and you don’t need a gym membership. You can walk in your neighborhood or at the Mall. You can walk alone with your iPod or with a friend and talk.
I’m going to study my walking pattern. (I’m such a geek!) I’ll be able to see the volume of steps each day of the week. And then I’m going to find ways to increase my steps on those low days.
I even found myself walking around the house today. Why sit and talk on the phone? When I can walk! Ha!
I’m on a mission.
Maybe this new awareness will encourage me to get up from my desk and take a few laps around the house or office.
They say that you should get at least 10, 000 steps in a day. hmmmmm
I”ll let you know how I measure up next week.
Do you know how much you move?
Have you used a pedometer before?
