Do You Take Enough Steps Each Day?

Ozeri Digital Pedometer

Do you know how many steps a day you take?  Most doctors recommend 10,000 a day for adults, 12,000 for girls and 15,000 for boys to have a healthy active lifestyle.  Unfortunately, the average American only takes 3000 - 5000 steps per day.  I was curious as to which category I would fall into.

I started my research using the Ozeri 4x3runner Digital Pocket 3D Pedometer.  This is the first pedometer to feature dual walking and running modes with 3-D tri-axis technology for accuracy.  It comes with full instructions, belt clip, a lanyard and lithium battery.

First wanted to see how many steps I averaged during a regular busy day, where I hardly sit down for any length of time.  I was hopeful in thinking that it had to be close to 10,000 as tired as I would be at the end of the day.  I was a little disappointed to learn I only averaged 3800 - 4700 steps per day.

I told myself that just won't do and I need to kick it up a notch.  I used to walk regularly and enjoy it, but things get busy and I fell out of the habit.  Now is a good time to start that habit back up and get closer to those 10,000 steps a day.

I have the pedometer on me almost all the time.  It's nice and skinny so I can throw it in my pocket or clip it on my pants depending on what I'm wearing.  It keeps it's accuracy wherever I stick it.  I don't jog, but so far the walking mode is working great for me.

I have had a couple cheap pedometers before that always broke within a few weeks and only had a couple of features.  I definitely prefer the Ozeri.  It seems to be pretty durable also as I have hit it on the counter and dropped it a couple of times and still good as new.
