Conventional wisdom (of some sort) says that one should aim to take 10,000 steps per day. I'm looking back over my FuelBand records, which cover the entire year, and I find that I have achieved this feat exactly 4 times. Each time, I've either had a day off with lots of tourism, or a 5 or 10K.
I drive 2+ hours per day in order to get to work and back. I work a compressed schedule (no lunch), in order to have that hour at home. I walk before dinner as often as I can, and try to get walks in on weekends. And yet, with all that, I've managed only 4 days of 10,000 or more steps.
