Fit Club: Anyone for 10,000 Steps A Day?

Blech!  I am the worst Fit Clubber in the history of SpouseBUZZ.  And I feel like every Fit Club post is a catalog of my failures and my "new" plans.

This week will be no different.

Here's this week's scheme:  walking with a pedometer.  I bought a pedometer at the Navy Exchange yesterday.  I've owned them before but they were always super-cheap (as in, free with my salad at McDonalds) and didn't work well.  This one wasn't too expensive ($16.00) but it should work a little better.

Apparently, you are supposed to try to walk 10,000 steps every day.  That is about 5 miles.  In my short experiment so far, I've discovered that I'm not walking nearly as much as I thought I was.  I think yesterday's total was something like 1,000 steps (but I didn't start until early afternoon.)

Have any of you ever used a pedometer?  How did that go for you?  Were you able to sustain it?  Please, tell!
