Gmaps Pedometer

So I'm revisiting using the Gmaps Pedometer I posted about previously since walking is my main form of exercise right now.

It tracks your walk, the exact distance, and if you turn on the feature, it'll also show calories burned based on your weight.

I'm thrilled to see that my evening dog walk burns off 120 calories! My daily commute burns 150 calories a day (75 each way). And my walk back from Whole Foods today burned 130 calories.

All in all, 400 calories! I'll take it!

I really like how much lighter I feel. Having lost 20 pounds makes a difference in my mobility. I had really started to notice things being harder this year physically, and I really think it was that extra weight.
