  1. i would really like to join this! I hope the pedometer isn’t flimsy like the last free one I tried at a street fair

  2. I’d like to keep track of my steps per day. I want to get in better shape; so I can maintain a healthy lifestyle.

    1. Absolutely Vandy, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is what TEAM LIFE is all about. Time to get moving- 10,000 steps/day!

  3. I’ll try it. I have been having a serious back issue that can be very painful. I want to become more active again and get in better shape. I’m hoping that will help my back.

    1. I think walking is a great way to get back into exercise. I hope it will help your back. My mom has some serious back issues and walking and swimming really helped her.

  4. Yeah! Was just commenting to my hubby how I wanted to start working on this goal and start tracking. I’m in!

    1. I think it’s a great goal! It definitely makes you aware of how much you’re moving. Simple things like parking further away in the parking lot can really help with getting in those extra steps.

    1. I don’t think we really have a good idea of how much we’re moving (or not moving) until we start tracking it. Thanks for joining!

  5. I’m in please! I was just thinking last night that I needed to figure out a way to get motivated to get back to exercising more, and I was considering getting a pedometer!

  6. I think I’ll give it a go. I blame my “bad knee” for not doing things, but maybe I can do it and don’t know it. Won’t know till I try.

  7. Count me in. I need to get out from behind the desk more often during the day and this will remind me. I’ll also take steps after work to reach the 10,000, wether it’s walking, running, treadmill, etc…

  8. I`d love to try this too. Since I walk all day at work, I`d love to see how much I really do walk at work and at home. Thank you.

  9. I hope I am not too late. I didn’t pay attention to this email when it came by. I am up for it. Joan and I have been walking through the Summer.

  10. 4,921 steps. Not too bad considering my ped disintergrated Saturday when I dropped it on concrete and my new ped from Amazon was waiting on the table when I got home.
