Handsome devil, isn't he?
And I love him.
And like Allison over at Losing it, I wore both Pedro and my old pedometer for a day and, like her, my step count increased. And not by just a couple hundred or so, but more like 20%, and that my friends, can add up! I have no idea how Pedro works, but this new little wonder has you measure your steps and then you input that information, so it seemed as though it should be more accurate. I did my own calculations by walking around the block, counting in my head and then looking at what Pedro logged and we were pretty much in sync.
Pedro's been clipped to my hip for about a week and we're becoming fast friends. I love going for walks and then checking the step count, distance and all the other fun little facts that he's got in store for me. It can be such motivation. Ideally I'd like to be over 10,000 steps each day and on the weekends I'd like to be closer to 15,000+. So we'll see. The weather has cooled today and is now back in that "perfect" temperature zone so a walk at lunch is in order for me. Maybe I'll even cheat a bit, in a good way, and go for a little longer than my lunch "hour."
Seriously people a good ped makes a difference and you should all run out and buy one. You may need it soon for something (a contest you ask?) I got brewing in my pretty little head. More info on that a bit later.
