When you want to start an exercise program, it is important to have measurable, achievable goals. Self-monitoring components like pedometers help to count every move you make.
A pedometer is an electronic device that counts each step you walk by detecting the movement of your hips. By positioning it correctly, it records each step every time your hip moves.
Most pedometers are relatively easy to use and maintain. Once you’ve chosen the one that suits you best, you can get started:
Before starting your pedometer program, you should consult your physician. If you’re physically ready, all you have to do is invest in a comfortable pair of walking shoes, strap on your pedometer and you’re ready to go!
The entire STEP DIET premise is simple: Walk 10,000 steps a day
Changing simple habits would add up more steps to your day. You can get off the bus one stop sooner. If your destination is in the 5th floor, get down the lift at the 4th floor and take the stairs. A brisk 5 minute coffee-break walk or walking over to talk to neighbors are other ways of increasing your step count. These simple changes in your daily life would account for your steps.1,000-5,000 steps
To reach these numbers of steps, you will need to state adding in walking on the spot while you are on the phone and a 20-minutes coffee-break walk at your office. You will need to make a conscious effort to get up from your desk a few times a day and walk for 5-minutes. You can get active around your home by cleaning and gardening. Gardening is really very interesting!!!! Try it out.5,000-10,000 steps
For achieving 10,000 steps per day you would need to be more committed. Don’t worry; it’s easy!! Aim to use the stairs for 5-6 times, walk for 5km, taking a 30-minute walk with your dog, and 10 minutes walk after breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Reaching 10,000 steps every day will help you feel you’re really exercising. Do you agree?
This is the point that makes you feel good about yourself because you’re truly starting to live an active lifestyle.Are you walking fast enough?
