Hey catmeyoo, yes I have a pedometer. I've been wearing one everyday for a couple of yrs since it was suggested at the gym. Bought one online, same model they had at the gym but cost less at Amazon. Omron HJ112. You can look back 7 days and see what your steps were, also aerobic steps too. I would suggest getting the clip on leash or lanyard. This model, you can just put it in your pocket, it doesn't have to be upright on your hip like some of the others.

Setting it was pretty easy, even for me. You do have to measure out your normal pace which is not hard to do. A trainer at the gym set it for me first and then I had to do it all over again when I changed the battery on it.

I slip it in my pocket as soon as I get out of the bed and then take it out at night. The closer to 10K I feel, the better off I am....but normally I rarely get there. I need to do more each wk I've gotten slack. Yesterday, I did a 6.2 mi. race so that's why all those steps. I was walking fast, not running...my knees can't take it.

I was looking at women runners in my age group and I see my vet and my cardiologist took almost an hr. to run the race and it took me 2 hrs. to walk it. I had one pit stop....that was maybe 5 min.
