...9998, 9999, 10,000!
Before we leave the topic of exercise and feet, let me share my favorite inexpensive toy- the PEDOMETER. I love these! They are terrific if you are currently in or out of shape. Buy one, clip it on, and you're off! Simply note your baseline steps, and then try to add 200 steps per day until you reach your goal. I recommended 10,000 steps per day as that goal. Many people think they are "always walking" at work, but are surprised to find how little it really is when they wear a pedometer. Additionally, it's fun! How wonderful to see immediate feedback, and the constant positive reinforcement of MEETING your daily fitness goal will propel you forward.
BOTTOM LINE: Buy a pedometer and get moving!!
