I love my pedometer. It keeps track of the steps I walk or jog. Each day it starts over and then keeps track the whole week. Additionally, the device converts to miles walked and MPH. With a calendar and date readout, what is not to like? It comes with a lanyard, but you can also keep it in a pocket. I love this little device.
Aside from all the features, the best thing about using a pedometer is that it motivates. I don’t really know why, but when I wear it I want to get out and walk, to meet my steps per day goal. I don’t feel as motivated when I go out with my stop watch (I am always thinking about how much time has elapsed.
Right now my goal is 10,000 steps per day, which turns out to be quite a lot. You can find information about the 10,000 step a day program at The Walking Site.
