Wear a pedometer.

Try wearing a pedometer for three or four days and determine your average number of steps per day, then add 2,000 to that number. This is a great initial goal. There are approximately 2,000 steps per mile and the typical American averages only 5,000 steps per day. The ultimate goal should be right around 10,000 steps per day but don’t try and make that leap overnight… ramp up gradually. You can find a good, durable, accurate pedometer for around $15 to $25.
