It has been more than two years since I posted last. Someone emailed me to see if everything was okay, so I’ll answer the question. The hips and legs and knees are just fine. Right now I finished mowing the lawn. It takes about 4 hours walking behind my self-propelled mower. The legs and buttocks tell me I’ve done more walking than they would like, but that’s just fatigue, not hip replacement problems.
I have a FitBit and an iPhone both measuring my steps. On an active week I average around 8000 steps. On a less active week I average around 5000. I’d like to always do 10,000 steps but that only happens occasionally.
