13,547 steps yesterday. Since I walk inside mostly, it doesn’t matter much what is going on outside.

8502 steps yesterday.  Right now I am walking mostly inside and I am not a fan of that.  It is a good sized house but I still get tired of the limited path to walk.

12,759 steps yesterday.

Walking inside is definitely not ideal, but with my balance issues, it is safer for me than trying to navigate the uneven, snow covered ground outside. Even in the summer, I just don’t feel safe walking that much outside here.

7764 steps yesterday.  I don't blame you at all Barbara.  This house sits on two lots and there is a lot of concrete in the back yard plus in the front there are sidewalks on both sides of the street so walking outside is easy.  Uneven ground is a recipe for disaster.  After breaking my hip I am really careful about that.

12,053 steps yesterday. Fell asleep twice in the recliner last evening!

No sidewalks in my neighborhood at all. My road isn’t even paved... It is just to much of a risk to walk outside, I just don’t take it.

Our road is paved but there are no sidewalks - only a 4 lane highway traveled by all manner of vehicles.  Not safe to walk on or near the road.

7123 steps yesterday.  I just made sure to get my steps/hour and get to 7 K and that was enough.
The house in the mountains was on a two lane highway with no room to walk and keep clear from traffic also but we had 2 1/2 acres and a lot of concrete so there was a lot of area to walk around outside.

4921 steps yesterday.  Pretty much took the afternoon off and that is my most productive. 
Barbara, taking it easy and still getting 10K is not too shabby.

9516 steps yesterday.  I have come to the conclusion that I am a wuss.  I used to get bundled up against the cold and get outside and walk even in the dark to make sure I managed 10K every day.  Now I am content to just take what happens as OK.

8525 steps yesterday.  Well, I guess what I mean is that I don't have the same dedication that I used to have.  Before I had the bout with Hypercalcemia and spent 10 days in the hospital and then I broke my hip I worked to get at least 10K every day but now it doesn't seem as important.  I do still work to get my steps in each hour for 12 hours each day and that seems more important.
