Jill’s Fit Tip Tuesday!


The benefits of having a pedometer are great! Using the health experts recommended 10,000 steps a day is a great way to monitor your exercise. Ever since being on the Dr. OZ show I have been using the pedometer they gave me. I love it! It’s is a reasonably priced pedometer and reads well.

Getting 10,000 steps a day is not as easy as you think! You really have to be moving most of the day. I work out a min of 1 hour a day and am very busy with my kids. I still find myself making laps up and down the stairs at the end of the day to get my steps in.
How to get your steps in:

1 hr walk: Walking is one of the best exercise there is. 1 hr will help hike up the steps. All though you will still need to get more, this is a great way to get your steps in and with nice spring weather so it’s refreshing to be outside.

Elliptical: My favorite work out machine and I usually get about 5000 in 1 hour. I do interval training so I am not on the elliptical the whole hour but in that hour I do get at least 1/2 of my days steps in.

Weight training: I have to stress the importance of weight training. It’s so good for your body and you really should do some type of weight lifting at least 3 days of week. On my weight training days its pretty hard to get my steps. I have had to mix things up and do intervals of walking or elliptical in between sets. It works and I am able to get in my many of my steps though my hour of training.

Using the stairs: I just set the timer if I need more steps at the end of day. I go up and down until my timer goes off. I get my heart rate up and really feel good after doing this.

These are just a few examples of ways to get your steps in. The list is endless. Be creative just make sure you make it to 10.000 a day! 🙂

Best pedometer in my opinion is the Omron Pedometer
If you don’t have a pedometer most definitely get one!! Have a great week and make it a fit one!
