Wearing a pedometer is a simple way to track your activity.
First, wear a pedometer everyday for a week and write your daily steps on a calendar. By the weeks end, you'll have a idea of how much you move each day.
Next, find ways to increase your steps, such as an extra walk, taking the stairs versus the elevator, parking further from the store, etc.
Make your final goal 10,000 steps (~5 miles) each day!
