10 ways to get 10k steps

Heather BouwhuizenComment

1.  Walk circles in your house ( my path is through my kitchen, into the dining room, front hallway, family room- then repeat!) 

2.  Do a Walk Away the Pounds video.  The lady on the video is kind of silly, but her 4 mile walk + normal activities = 10k steps. 

3.  Walk your dog!  

4.  Pace (or dance!) when making dinner.  

5.  Make a treadmill desk.  (My husband did this.  Don't knock it til you try it.)  

6.  Meet a friend, and go for a walk!  Friend therapy and exercise.  It's a great combo. 

7.  Walk around the mall, Target or Walmart.  (Try not to shop!)

8.  Walk to close locations (pool, playground , library)  

9.  Set alarms on your Fitbit, and walk 1000 steps every hour.  

10.  Compete with a friend.  Nothing like a friendly competition to get you off your butt!!
