We are coming up on a busy time of year – back to school – when parents often forget to exercise and take care of themselves. I would like to challenge you to dig out your pedometer, or go buy an inexpensive one (approx. $10).
Wear your pedometer for a couple of days and see what your average number of steps are. Then set a goal to increase that average number by 500 in the following week. Who wants to join me? Comment below and check in with your average steps after you track it for a couple of days. Let everyone know your favorite way to add steps to your day.
If you are worried about posting a low number, I can tell you that recently my average has been LOW….really low. Nowhere near 10,000 steps per day like I used to get pre-toddler, probably something like 1500-2000 steps/day.
Don’t forget to drink extra water as you get more active!
If you are curious which pedometer I use, here it is at Amazon: Omron HJ-720ITFFP Pocket Pedometer with Advanced Omron Health Management Software
