Usually when I tell people how I managed to get fit and lose fat while eating the fast food all the time my explanation starts with “I do steps counting”. The usual, quite quick response is “Steps counting what? Are you crazy?!”.
It usually follows up with “I’m not going to go around counting steps all day long!”. Well, I don’t either. It’s just my usual response because I do count steps in more digital way. I can’t imagine doing this myself and neither should you unless you’re up for a headache.
I then explain that what you actually have to do is get some sort of device that do it for you. At the moment on the market there are hundreds of devices doing it quite OK. I’ve used Jawbone Up myself in the beginning of my Journey and lately I’m back to only doing it via iPhone while waiting for the big deal The Apple Watch. Problem with iPhone is that most people don’t take it everywhere, it’s a bit cumbersome, so for truly getting your steps count its preferred to get some on wrist device you can wear all the time. You should find something you like and can afford easily or that will make you nuts (if you’re gadget geek like me) .
So for anyone starting up their steps counting journey here’s a few tips:
Those are just a few tips but I can tell you from my experience that I used to hate going shopping, or going to my car parked far away, and now I’m quite happy. I even didn’t fight for the parking card I used to have in my company because the thought of making 1000-2000 more steps just to get my car was a reward by itself (I know I’m crazy, hopefully some day you will understand). I have happily gave it away to my work friend. You should too!
