Thank you for your helpful comments yesterday on using a pedometer.
I agree 10,000 is a lot Elaine! Doing a little research tonight I read that 6,000 steps a day is a good target for health, and 10,000 for weight loss.
Liz, I've signed up for a 10k charity walk in May - I've a way to go!
I am wearing mine attached to my belt all day, Cath, and am shocked at how sedentary I am. Also I think your pedometer is more sophisticated than mine. Looking at all the different kinds, ranging in price from 66p to £138.06 (mine was £4.99) I see you can measure just about everything, calories consumed, heart rate, glucose levels...
I will definitely adopt Swissrose's idea and measure our favourite walks in steps. The forest walk I showed you yesterday is only 2,538 steps. I thought it would be much more.
Today I walked 7,276 - a record!
Yesterday I made these lemon primrose cakes, so I needed those extra steps.
Fortunately the family came and helped eat them all....
