Yes I do this sometimes.
I read that we should all do about 10,000 and I like to get to that.

It is not an easy task however, as I do about a km walk every morning and that is only about 2500 steps.

I find it quite interesting to see how many steps I do in a day even though unless I am working, I generally do not get anywhere near the 10,000 steps recommended.

I have never done this in my life!!! I used to walk to work,was on my feet all day except for my breaks and then walk home again,so I think I was getting my quota of steps in each day!!! I am not able to walk without my cane when I am away from the house,unless I am using a trolley at the supermarket(and then I zoom along like an Olympic sprinter!! Hee Hee!!!) so I know that I am not getting a high number of steps any time at all now! I am not even interested in knowing the number!!!
Lord, now I have an image . . . jules being swept along behind a trolley with knees in the air like a Tennessee Walking Horse. Heehee.

Maybe we should get fitbits for our dogs . . . !

You might be on to something there,there's heaps of people out their who would spend their money on them!! You might get RICH!!!!!!
by Jules
Oooh, such pin money! Such jewels!
by Rice
How many is one?
by Rice
I think it's possibly one more than NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Actually,now that I think about this,I guess it depends on whether we have 2 legs or 4! My dogs obviously do way more steps that their little human!!!
by Jules
No, I've never actually thought of counting the number of steps I've made in a day. it's an interesting thought though.
Since my accident last year, yes I count...but not in the fashion one would think.
After 10-15 mins, time to sit down..!! :(

Hahahahaha . . . . we are going in the same direction! Why hasn't yours got a halo?
by Rice
Yeah, sometimes I pay attention to the 10,000 steps a day recommendation, or use a pedometer game like The Walk or Step Buy Step as incentive to walk more. Other times I don't bother. In an average day when I'm not particularly trying (don't actually go for a walk or a run) I do between 6000 and 10000 steps.
Yes. I used to wear one when I was working, and I did probably double what the recommended amount per day is. Now that I am not working, I need to find more opportunities to take more steps to increase my daily rate.
I used to when I was working. One particularly busy day I did more than 17,000! But slept well that night tho :). Must remember to replace the battery in the pedometer one day, lol.
No. I would lose count. :-P

Unless you're into strict fitness regime, why would you do something that's not only boring, but a waste of time?

I walk for pleasure, at a goodly rate, so that's all I need to know!
Yes - I walk 6-8 kms per day and that usually entails about 11/12,000 steps at my length of stride. My fitbit measures the steps, distance, calories, food intake, etc. etc. so there is an accurate record.
Yes, I have used a pedometer before and found it interesting how many steps one takes in a day. I lost my pedometer a few years ago and plan to get a new one someday!
Yes I do, I have an ap on my phone (Argus) which counts my steps based on my height and my stride and if I happen to be jogging, it also automatically counts those steps as part of my jog!

I try to get in at least 12000 steps a day, a little bit of walking everywhere helps I think
