For the last week I have been wearing a pedometer, making sure that I walk over 10,000 steps a day. Why? Raising money for CARE and all the women across the world that have to walk thousands more steps sometimes, just to get drinking water.
About mid week I discovered that the pedometer wasn't working properly. It was counting only a percentage of the steps that were actually taken. No wonder I thought it crazy that an office worker could clock up 10,000 steps a day. I was running after two kids all day long, and walking for nearly two hours each day - and still sitting around 8000 steps.
I wonder how many I did take? Probably nowhere near the amount that some women step, just to get water. 92,000 steps each day! That would surely curb our obesity problem in Australia.
