Hi all after buying a pedometer yesterday (following CurlyBayeaf's post on pedometers) I wore it all day to see what kind of amount of steps I would do in a day. Now I am on the go all day, only really sit down for meals and a bit of telly in the evening. Always ferrying the kids about (I suppose I sit down in the car), up and down the stairs with clean/dirty washing, tidying up, hoovering, cooking dinner etc etc etc. I thought I was quite active but was quite shocked to see that I only clocked up about 3000 steps today. So tomorrow I am going to go for an hours walk and see how many steps that clocks up. How many steps would you do on average in a day? Am I not being realistic to expect I would do very many without having a long walk in the day too?
