There are lots of good pedometers that record at any angle - just avoid the cheap ones under 50, they can be very inaccurate and aggravating.

I bought a Striiv and love it. It records steps, miles, stairs, cals, mins of activity and has trophies and "My land" game to motivate you. If you sinc the striiv to the computer it donates to three causes for your walking and keeps you updated plus nice overall achievements. Some days I am amazed how much I have walked while doing chores and gardening. Let me know what you end up with. I bought my Striiv on Amazon.

I got the white one, Striiv Smart Pedometer, Basic Bundle. I also bought a soft case (pretty and protects the unit).

I think the black one only works with an iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini, or iPod Touch - and I don't have or want any of these to connect to.

I did some bicycling this week so I would make it to my half way point. Still getting a lot of walking in. The windbreak has needed some work and my dog and I enjoyed some nice long walks - in this perfect late spring weather, so nice!

Keep Moving

was on vacation last week so I didnt get many miles in.. only about 1-2 a day.. however, tomorrow i am starting back on my insanity.. and i will have at least a mile walk.. therefore i should get 4 miles a day because that insanity kicks my ***.. but as of now.

261.34/1000
do not think i will make 1000 miles.. but i am hoping for atleast 700.. I did start late (in like march) so that seems pretty fair but we will see.. hopefully summer will make me move more

p.s.
anyone who swims.. how many miles do you count for laps.. or just for fun swimming/playing around in pool

Ajlee33, There are many ways people count exercise for miles, you can find information charts on-line but really we are just here encouraging each other to keep moving. If you don't want to figure out distance and do a true mile, a good way is to make 20mins = 1miles or 30mins =1mile.
I've seen a huge variety even within a thread with guidelines. I think it's great you have some goals and have continued activity.

I just reached 300 miles this morning. Since I should be getting to 500 by the end of the month, it looks like I am running behind the pace, quite literally!

A good week of movement, 5 or 6 miles each day. This week I sprayed weeds in the yard and windbreaks. Our field grass needs to be reseeded.

Hope everyone kept moving.
