My Pedometer Steps Per Mile Motivate Me #iHeartOmron

I’ve completed my first official week as an Omron Fitness Challenge ambassador. Last week I talked about what inspired me to get back into the lifestyle I lead before W was born. This week, motivation has been on my mind all week. Inspiration is wonderful but motivation is also key. And I can tell you that one thing has kept me motivated this week. Pedometer steps per mile. And discovering just how many steps I could log on my  Omron HJ-323U USB pedometer.

Do you know how many steps are in a mile? I’ve looked it up a few times this week. It turns out that there are about 2,000 steps in a mile. So my daily goal of 10,000 steps works out to about 5 miles. This can vary a bit based on stride length and other factors, but I like having a number in my head.

So my goal this week was to hit 70,000 steps or 10,000 per day. And I managed to meet my goal for 6 out of 7 days! And I exceeded the weekly goal of 70,000 without a problem. My pedometer photo in this post shows the long walk Grambo and I went on yesterday. We did over 10,000 steps during that walk alone because the weather was so gorgeous!

So what motivates you on a daily basis?

Is it a step goal? A calorie burned goal? Or maybe you’re all about the number on the scale. I’m still shrinking over here and lost just over half a pound this week. Since I applied for the #iHeartOmron fitness challenge, I’ve lost 10.8 pounds! That is definitely a motivator as well!

Tell me what motivates you to get active each day!

  1. That is a great daily goal! Wearing a pedometer sure makes you aware of your daily activity. I need to put mine back on!

  2. My motivation is travel. I used to travel when I was younger and it was amazing. I want to give my kids amazing experiences, but doing that requires being smaller so I’m not scared every time I buy a plane or train ticket – because someone, somewhere randomly might decide I need two seats (even though that’s never happened every time I think….it could….it could….)

  3. way to go! Being able to physically SEE how much you are doing really helps!

    right now, I am motivated by the weather…yes it is cold and crappy here in Illinois…but I know that warm weather is coming around and I want to look good and feel confident this summer! Plus that means SHOPPING!!!!

  4. This would definitely be a great motivation for me to get back out there and just to start walking during the week.

  5. What motivates me to get active each day? My son is what helps me get motivated. I want to be able to keep up with him as he continues to get older. For me it’s all about the numbers on the scale. I’m sick of being overweight.
