The Nitty Gritty:

I track the number of kilometers I run, bike, swim or walk. There is no way for this to be an exact science, but essentially – I count activities that are aerobic, those that get my blood pumping. So, a YES to hiking, commuter biking, or walking the dog, but a big fat NO to shopping or walking down the block to Starbucks or Chipotle.

Figuring out the rules has proven to be much easier than going the distance. I am trusting the distance displayed at the pool, on the treadmill, and other machines at the gym and I have an odometer on my bikes. It will get a little trickier when running or walking outside, but it will work out with the help of sites like Map My Run and Google Maps (although I am thinking about getting a GPS watch, which would hold all the answers). Or if i learn how to use my iPhone properly. Or better yet, if someone who loves me, buys me a Garmin. For times when I can’t actually track the distance – I will just use my average paces. Right now, an hour of spin class will be 20 km because on average I bike about 20 km/h. (I know it’s slow).
