Here's What — and When — to Eat Before Working Out

Do You Wear a Pedometer Daily?

With so many fitness devices sporting GPS capabilities, clipping a pedometer to your waistband can seem a little antiquated. That's why I am loving the tiny iPod Nano; it has a built-in pedometer and fits easily into any pocket so you can count your steps on the down low. Recently on vacation in Paris, to rationalize my afternoon trysts with French pastries I slipped my Nano into my pocket daily before exploring the city's cobblestone streets. I was impressed to see that after a day traipsing around the gardens in Versailles, I took 26,572 steps.

Now that I am back to blogging (read "deskbound"), I have to work a little bit harder to reach the recommended daily 10,000 steps. And my iPod pedometer is just the inspiration I need to get up and get moving during the day since sitting for too long is bad for your health and waistline. What about you?

Does anyone know where to get the wrist pedometer i saw a program on TV where it records movement when you lift weights and cardio, but have been unable to find where to get one

I bought a cheapo version from a mass retailer. It worked okay but you had to wear it in a certain way to get a proper reading and since my yoga pants didn't have belt loops, I stopped wearing it.

Nope, but I do use a HRM when I work out.

I started wearing it when my employer gave them out to encourage us to improve our health, walk more, exercise more, etc. I like wearing it! It definitely makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something healthy throughout my day!

I said no, because I don't wear it daily, but I wore it a couple of times to measure how long does it take for me to get those 10,000 steps, and its about 90 min, so I try to walk additional 60 min if I was active during the day, if not at least 90 min... so time is my pedometer ;)
