Day 25 of 30 Days of Give Aways for the month of September!
Hello there! I have a pedometer for you today. I know, it sounds kind of boring—- but it’s for your own good. Everyone thinks they get enough exercise throughout the day by parking a bit farther away at the grocery store, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator at work. But unless you make a concerted effort to actually work out– either at a gym, or to go for a run, or walk the dog for longer than around the block, (etc. etc.) chances are you aren’t actually moving enough throughout the day.
We’ve (royal we, here) turned into a pretty sedentary group, it seems. I thought I moved enough on a normal day. I walk the kids to school and walk again in the afternoon to pick them up. I spend a lot of time walking the aisles of the grocery store, and I chase the baby around at the park or in the backyard. Because of this, I was astonished to see that my normal routine only added up to about 4300 steps a day—– well below the recommended 10,000 steps.
I’ve had this exact same pedometer for about 4 months, and I love it. You can either clip it to your waist band or pocket, or put it in your pocket. You can even put it in your purse or in a backpack and it will somehow keep track of your steps. It’s pretty durable, too. I’ve accidentally washed it at least twice, and then it went for a ride in the dryer. I was pretty sure I killed it the last time, but after a few days the water evaporated from the screen and it went back to working perfectly.
I like that it “remembers” the last 7 days of accumulated steps, and I like that there is a clock. It’s easier to glance at it to check the time then it is to wake up the phone to check the time (I don’t seem to wear a watch very often anymore).
I’d like to share this same pedometer with a lucky winner. To enter, please leave a comment below and I’ll randomly select a winner on Monday morning (sept 26) at 7am.
best of luck to all! and remember to MOVE! 🙂
