YOUR PEDOMETER IS WRONG!

Published by Jan on

“My pedometer said I walked  4 miles today while at work.”

I overheard a young woman clerk say at the local grocery store yesterday.

Too bad that it doesn’t count towards any weight loss goals.

SORRY

(unless of course you do hard physical labor and sweat like a man in your normal work day)

I know that sounds so mean, and I see so many women out there wearing the little bugger, but here’s the deal.

There is only one way to actually lose weight using your pedometer!

AMP UP YOUR GAME…

How do you do that? With 3 minutes of exercise incorporated into your day that’s how.

Any “exercise” you get in the course of your normal day, doing normal activities of life are what are called “MAINTENANCE” activities and will not make a difference in you meeting any weight loss goals.

Lets take a look at the store clerks day. So she has put on 2 miles in her normal workday, but then she steps into the ladies room and does 3 minutes of moderate intensity exercise, 30 knee jacks, 30 jumping jacks, 30 standing crunches, 30 skaters hops, and 60 wall pushups, which will burn over and above her maintenance calorie burn. If she repeats this through out the day and get 7-10 3minute workouts in she will have burned 200-275 calories each day. This is when you are going to see the pounds drop.

YOU MUST USE MUSCLES THAT YOU DO NOT USE IN YOUR NORMAL WORK DAY!

This is not a FREE PASS to eat more. Just keep it up and add to it an actual 4 mile/hour walk each day.

Then you will be in the zone.

*But let me further add that if you worked a job that you stood during a shift like  a barista for 4 hours, and then you quit doing that, and did not have a job that you stood for 4 hours you would gain weight most likely, because your maintenance has been altered. It all hangs in a balance.*

Yes 4 miles is 4 miles but how you get there is where the change occurs.

The good news is there is GOOD NEWS.

FYI: a good pace to work towards when you do actually get out and walk is 4 miles an hour which is around a 15 minute mile. Sounds really slow and you can easily amp this up to a 10 minute mile with a little practice. Here you will also see pounds dropping.
