Come visit me at Girly Bitz. It's my other interweb hangout.

Eats for Thursday 11/18

I got a pedometer. Yay!

It's nothing fancy, but it was free. It was one of the rewards available through our credit card points. We figured it would come in handy on our runs.
Did I mention that it was free?

I tried it out today while doing Burn it Up.
According to my little pedometer, I took 566 steps during my workout.

Not too shabby, considering they were all taken in the space between my recliner and my tv stand.

I also traveled a distance of 0.21 miles.

Huh. Interesting.

I also burned a total of 24.4 calories.

There is no way that can be right.
I really feel like I burned at least 237 calories during the lunge portion alone.

Do you have a pedometer/calorie counter? What role does it play in your exercise routine? Do you think 24.4 is accurate?
Remember that I did like a hundred lunges.
Two hundred squats.
Just saying.

  1. I don't use a pedometer. I think they are less than accurate so I never took the time to buy one. My grandmother wears one all the time, however. She loves it.
