Have you ever wondered what exactly is meant by "moderate" exercise? Well, guess what-moderate exercise is now defined as 100 steps per minute!


Read this: Walk 100 Steps a Minute for 'Moderate' Exercise



Are you getting in your recommended amount of exercise each week?

I do the 2.5 hours a week they mentioned lol ... but I don't have a pedometer so I don't really know how many steps I take!! Maybe I should invest ;)

I took a watch and counted my steps as I jogged/walked yesterday and I now "officially" can say I'm doing moderate exercising. ;)
