    Yesterday I used my pedometer and that was the day that I vacuumed and mopped the kitchen and master bath. Then in the afternoon I didn't just dust I polished my dining room furniture, all the furniture in my living room and the chest that is in my foyer. I have had spasms in my leg today, which I figure came from that rather than what I did today. It was a lot of bending and trying to get down low without stooping since I can't get back up. Both of my legs are stiff and sore. Yet, I only had a little over 200 steps. I know that was wrong because going from the front of the house to the back a couple of times would give me that much.

    Today was such a bad day for pedometers for me that I have no reading at the end of the day in spite of wearing two pedometers all day. I wear one as a check on the other because I'm still not sure which one is the more accurate.

    Neither of them was accurate today. I counted 50 steps I took while in this apartment and neither pedometer recorded them.

    Pedometers are moody little things, I think. Maybe they'd do better if I fed them some kind of pedometer food?

    I think your pedometers found their food - they’re eating your steps!

    We took a walk again yesterday. I really enjoy getting outside. I miss doing the garden.

    Agate, your pedometers sound just like mine.

    I suspect all pedometers are a breed. Unpredictable, quirky. You have to love them in spite of their faults, I guess.

    I swam yesterday, not today.
    I have been using the app for walking on my iPhone. I wear it wound my neck, cross body way.
    Here are my numbers:
    Mon. 1594
    Tues 1594
    Wed.164 (IVIG)
    This 1692
    Fri 1884
    Sat 1612

    I use it as incentive to try to walk more when I can. Often it occurs mid to end of day, when the anti spasm meds really kick in more
    My 28$ Amazon pedometer worked great the firs few weeks, but then it just started to miss even large numbers of stepping bursts.

    That reminded me that I hadn't posted my September average, a bit lower than the previous several months: 1,487 steps/day taken in September on average, based on 27 days.

    If that is down Agate, you must have had some really good days in those 27 days.

    I have a serious question for all of you exercise gurus. If you stand for long periods of time, but are basically not walking other than a step or two does that help to strengthen your legs, or do you have to be walking? When I say a long time, I am talking about maybe two hours.
