Never Too Old To Move More
By: Bob Hughes, RPh retired, director of Wellness Ministry OLOL Church, Bettendorf, Iowa
I have been given a not previously used Accusplit Pedometer by a so far anonymous friend. Does it have any features other than counting steps?
At 96 years of age, I feel very blessed to have an interest in keeping track of my movement. I was disappointed when my grandson snapped a $160.00 Garman counter on my wrist and discovered it did not count steps when I was pushing a stroller.
I have been directing a “Wellness Ministry”, that I founded in 1985, for these 32 years, at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Bettendorf, Iowa. I have also assisted the director of the Wellness Committee for the last 12 years in a “Walking for Jesus,” walking program. We count and report steps as well as the number of servings per day of fruits and vegetables. I live in an independent living facility that also has its own ongoing “Tour of the United States., One Step At a Time”, so I will make good use of the Accusplit.
