I'm wearing a pedometer today. Because it's good to remind yourself every now and then how little walking you actually do. I've read that everyone should walk 10,000 steps a day. And apparently, unless you're Amish you won't. They average about 20,000 at least. Japanese are pretty good walkers as well. You should try wearing one and you'll be suprised at the effort it takes to clock up 10,000 steps. I used to wear one a couple of years ago but I had to give it up as I became obsessive about it. If I hadn't hit 10,000 I'd find myself up in the garage at night skipping. Or walking around the kitchen while cooking. And if it fell of during the day and reset itself to 0, I'd almost cry. Then I decided I'd make my goal 15,000, then 20,000. Then I decided I was going insane and gave it up. But today it's back and the only reason I'm currently at 9,146 after 5 hours is because I did a billy blanks boot camp dvd. And I would have skipped after that but I discovered "someone" had run over my rope and smashed the handles. But I'm off to Big W to buy one now.
