So... naturally this information made me curious to see how many steps a day I'm walking. I found an interesting free iPhone app (it's also available for Android phones) that you just turn on and leave in your pocket all day. It tracks not only your steps but also translates that into miles. Yesterday I tried it out and walked about 4000 steps (I went for a 15-20 minute walk in the morning, which I normally don't do).
I'm very curious to see over the course of time, how much I walk on average (and whether or not this will motivate me to walk more). I do tend to be competitive with myself, so I have a feeling that I may start trying to beat my "score" by walking a little more each day. I also love that this app, unlike a standard drug-store pedometer, keeps track of your walking history for you. That definitely helps give me a better sense of my habits and how to improve htem.
How much do you walk every day? Have you tried a digital pedometer app? Did it help motivate you?
