Get Moving!


I was sent one of these Sportline Pedometers as part of the Move100 campaign.  The campaign is inspiring everyone to be active for at least 100 minutes per day.

At first I was unsure that it was for me – but then I have to say, I was curious to see JUST how many steps/how much moving I was doing running after a toddler all day! The answer: 11,000 steps!  After I had that answer, I was then curious to see the following day what my number was, and so on and so on!

The interesting thing about this line of pedometers, is that they not only track your steps, but your movement as well (which is great when you are not just walking but cleaning, chasing, feeding, etc).

The pedometers are between $15 – $25, and make a great gift for just about anyone that wants to get moving!

Anyone that has nursed a baby and worn a nursing cover, knows that it can be awkward, uncomfortable, and just not that pretty.  Well, the folks at LaDy LaDuke have changed all of that with their  fashionable yet functional feeder frock.
