cool pedometer


a new way of living!
Hi everyone,

well i bought a pedomater off ebay a few days ago, and went out for a walk with the dog today, and cause it was counting, i wanted to do as much as poss!

well my clever little gadget (omron hj-720ITC) also counts calories and grams of fat burned! very cool.

normally i would ignore the fat thing as its making the assumtion that it is fat burned, however on this diet - it is fat!

ok, so i did (drum roll...)

21,255 steps....

18,801 of them were 'aerobic' (more than 60 steps per minute)

554.4 calories

its assuming half my calories used were fat and said i have used 37.0g of fat :D:D

however, as most of it would prob be fat calories... and there are 9cals per 1g of fat, i make it 61.5 g of fat :D:D:D:D

apparantly i have walked just over 7 miles!!!!

no wonder i cant move now, cant work out if the dog loves me or hates me now, lol.

I love omron!

Wow! you're in negative equity in the calorie stakes there alright:clap:
Did you have to do all that measuring of your step length etc? I've got one, but can't programme step length in. Will ask OH to do it at weekend.

yeah i had to walk ten paces, measure it, divide by ten and put that figure in. i'm only short so my stride is not very big.
