10,000 steps

... 10,000 steps? I brought this up on FB the other day but want to hear what you all think. So I have this app that counts how many steps I take in a day. And you're supposed to do 10,000 steps. I mean WHA...?


I sit on my tush for a living and make stuff up. Yesterday I got 2,400 steps and that was me running to let the dog in and the dog out and the dog back in... So today I was DETERMINED to get 10,000. I hiked TWICE and I'm only up to 7,700. What the heck? Surely my app is broken! How about you, anyone out there keeping track of your steps? Talk to me!
