    Default 2016 Get Stepping Challenge

    To quote Spirit Deer, 'Whether you track your daily steps using a Fitbit, pedometer, by the mile, by the minute, or any other way you prefer, join us on this thread! Let's see how well we can all do at making exercise into a regular habit, and maybe improving our fitness as we go.

    This challenge is not a competition, so it doesn't matter how many or how few steps you want to set as your goal. You don't even have to make your goal public! Just check in to make yourself accountable, get some encouragement toward attaining your goals, or maybe give some encouragement to others.

    Ready? GO!".

    Work has a incentive for walking. We earn points ( not yet sure what the points actually get us )

    Three ways to earn points
    When you walk 300 steps in 5 mins 6 times a day

    Or 3,000 steps in 30 mins once a day

    Or 10,000 steps in A day

    I am trying to figure out how to make this work during the work day.

    DH had the point incentive this year. He was able to get me a free fitbit, plus $80 in Amazon gift cards. With the fitbit, I have been trying to keep up the 10,000 steps each day, taking Sundays off as a day of rest. That will be my continued goal here too.

    I have a fitbit also. On work days, I sometimes get 7000 steps during the work day. My goal will be 9000 steps daily. I did get 11000 in yesterday walking a trail with dh for a couple miles after work.

    I got a fitbit for Christmas so I need to get moving! I've had 2 knee surgeries in the last 13 months and know I need knee replacement but want to avoid that if I can! Walking is a big priority for me!

    is this the only exercise thread? I am not medically cleared for anything, even walking for exercise, except for using a recumbent bike. I ordered one I've been saving for today. Maybe I can track time or miles on it here? Or is there a better thread that's not just for walkers?

    still maintaining my 10000+ each day. Still working on todays count. I do take Sundays off though. I have noticed some inches gone, and the scale is finally moving down a bit.

    Bernice, I think you could count your miles on your bike. For me, 2400 is equivalent to one mile.

    Bernice, I think you could track it any way you want. I look at this as a get moving thread. If I'm wrong, just tell me to leave.
    I am going to go for 30 minutes of exercise a day. I usually walk, ride a stationary bike or do a workout DVD.

    Got 60 minutes in today between the stationary bike and walking Beastie.
    I'm too busy working on my own grass to notice if yours is greener.
