Trulia conducted an online survey by Harris Poll of 2,005 adults, and 1,117 planned to buy a…

Yes I did hit 20,000 steps and then some on Saturday. I got a nice e-mail message from Fitbit that included Yipee — which is a misspelling of Yippee, but hey, I still like the message. That equates to more than 9 miles for me in one day, and I trekked more than 250 miles…
