I might join that, too!
About three weeks ago, I started doing The Best Life web page. I don't really stick with the diet very well, although I am eating more healthily. But it really got me motivated to move more. I started wearing my pedometer (which needed a new battery because it's been sitting around doing nothing for so long
). Anyway, it is a great motivator. It keeps track of miles, steps, calories burned, fat burned, and aerobic steps (when you walk more than 10 minutes solid). I try to get at least 10,000 steps a day, and have gone up to 13,000 just a few days ago. I usually do 6000 to 8000 steps in my normal day, so to get the 10,000, I have to walk about a mile, which gets me to my goal of about 3500 aerobic steps. I'm planning to increase it gradually even more, and get back into a little weight training, and also back on my bike which I (used to!) love.
Anyway, I love my pedometer. It's an Omron (it's the one they feature on ivillage). It sells for $18-$20 online. (I got mine at Amazon.com.) I just bought the Omron with the tracking software and I love it - it keeps track of everything and has graphs. Both of the pedometers keep 7 days in memory, so you can easily look back at the past week and compare how you're doing.
It's really motivating me to park on the far side of the parking lot - I figure if I don't get it one place, I have to make more of an effort when I get home! (Even paced back and forth in front of the TV one night when I needed a few more steps to get to 10,000.)
Sorry to go on and on, but I'm really excited about this (relatively) easy and fun way to step up my exercise.
