Walk Adair!!! - Writer finds activity tracker helps her get in steps
She earned her activity tracker - she uses a Fitbit - through insurance wellness tracker and finds it a great way to get in minimum 10,000 steps a day. She arrives at work 20-30 minutes early each morning with a goal of having 3,000 steps in before 8am. Fitness trackers work for her. But she's not dogmatic about everyone having one, though she's a staunch advocate of walking. She says, do what's right for you. 'If a tracking device is not for you, measure in minutes. 30 minutes of walking 5 days a week has tremendous health benefits.'
This is how she does it. You may have another way which is better for you. You are invited to share. There are thousands of different ways to achieve the goal.

A personal statement on Activity Tracking
County Health Rankings 2016 reports that 32% of Adair County residents are physically inactive and 32% are obese.
Is there a relationship there? Of course there is!!!
Physical Activity promotes good health and walking is the easiest most affordable way for most of us to get it.
I'm a walker and I'm a fan of tracking my steps. I wear a fitbit and get 10,000 plus steps daily.
I earned my fitbit with points through my insurance wellness plan.
I try to arrive at work 20-30 minutes early each morning and get started, my goal is to have 3000 steps by 8am.
My breaks are used for getting steps as well as part of my lunch break.
There are lots of choices in tracking devices to fit your price range and style.
If a tracking device is not for you measure in minutes. 30 minutes of walking 5 days a week has tremendous health benefits.
A few of those benefits are maintaining weight, strengthening bones and muscles, improving balance and movement, improving mood, preventing and/or managing heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.
What do you do for physical activity?
