Thought I'd go for a walk around the local swapmeet.

What do you swap?

I want to clean my room up and make it gorgeous to be in. After that, I might reward myself with a walk to a river about 10 mins from here but which goes for miles.

A swapmeet is just where you swap cash for secondhand goods. It's kinda like a huge garage sale except there are hundreds of sellers selling all their old junk that is of no use to them anymore.
I enjoyed browsing but I didn't see anything I wanted this time.

You are so lucky to live just 10 minutes walking distance from the river.

Caught up with a friend today who was down to watch the cricket, then my partner and i went for a walk on Mt Wellington. Went from the Springs to Sphinx rock then went along the shoebridge track to see the octopuss tree and down to the road at the hairpin and then back up the road to the springs. 'Bout an hour I think.

Dolly: Im into secondhand stuff. We have St Andrews Market in Vic and Camberwell market every weekend. Same sort of deal.

I ended up walking up to the vid shop to return a very overdue dvd. It's about a four and a half to five thousand step walk there and back. I wore my pedometer. Ive done about 12000 steps today. That's 2000 more than the recommended 10000.

Fairly painless. :D

What sort of price would I be looking at for a pedometer? And can they tell you how far you've walked cause I'm no good at estimating distance LOL

I bought a talking one from the homecare magazine that gets left at the door.
They charge $32. you clock in the mesurement of your average stride and then if you press one button that will tell you how many steps you've done followed by how much of a kilometre you've done so far. It also has a clock and a couple of other features I don't need or use. there's another button to clear the steps back to zero.
I've road tested it for a few months and now I've got two on order for my sisters.
A breakfast cereal was giving one away not long ago
but I'd check out Tandy or Dick Smiths.

My friends in america told me that a few months ago MacDonalds sold a pedometer for only $3.95, it was a real bargain as it was very accurate.

I've had one from the diabetic association that failed to work properly, it was good for 2 weeks then it started counting one step as 2 or 3.
I bought one off weight watchers and it had the same problem so I threw it away.
