It’s time again for another freebie!
Today, I’m sharing a free step tracker printable for your bullet journal or A5 size planner.
As someone who works from home and is honestly a bit of a homebody, I’m lucky if I average 4-5k steps per day. I use my Apple Watch to keep track of all of my physical activities, and I find that it’s quite accurate.
But, when I’m actually writing down my steps or using a step tracking page to stay accountable, I find that I walk more. Much like a habit tracker, physically filling in something on paper makes you motivated.
This means taking more breaks to get up, stretch and walk around. Sometimes I go outside and play a game of tag with my kids, jump on the trampoline, or just take 5 minutes to walk up and down the stairs.
Walking is one of the best exercises on the planet. There are tons of research articles and studies proving the many benefits of walking. Some of those benefits include:
- Better sleep habits
- Vitamin D from the sun
- Weight loss
- Improved mood
- Healthy joints
- Improved blood sugar control
Among many other things.
If you are overweight, have joint problems, are recovering from surgery or delivering a baby, walking is the perfect exercise to get your body moving and burning extra calories.
It’s recommended to walk for about 30 minutes per day. Depending on your pace, 30 minutes could even out to between 1 and 2 miles.
But, even if you can’t do 30 minutes per day, working up to more time is a great goal. And with this step tracker printable you can see your progress, which will, in turn, motivate you to want to push a little more each time.
The Best Step Tracking Devices on a Budget
If you don’t have a wearable device that currently tracks your steps, this printable won’t be much good to you. However, if you keep your phone on you at all times, you could download an app and keep a pretty good rough estimate that way.
But if you are looking for an affordable step tracker, the devices shown below are a good place to start.
As I mentioned earlier, I love my Apple Watch. It keeps track of everything from my weight lifting sessions and HIIT training to steps and yoga workouts. However, the Apple Watch only works with iPhone AND it’s not a budget-friendly option.
So, I want to give you some other affordable step tracking device options. These include both clip on pedometers and watch-style fitness trackers.
Free Step Tracker Printable for Your Bullet Journal
This printable step tracker is A5 size and is available in both 30 and 31-days. It includes a key space with 5 spaces for color coding your step ranges. This printable has a dot grid background.

How to Print and Use This Freebie
Time needed: 5 minutes.
Here’s some simple instructions for using this free printable:
- Download the step tracker
Scroll down to find the link to the step tracking page and click on it. This printable is a PDF so you will need a PDF Reader installed on your computer. Adobe Reader is 100% free and safe.
- Load matte sticker paper into your printer
This is the best sticker paper I have found. Be sure you are loading it so that your printable will print on the paper side.
- Print your step tracker
Click file and find the print option. Click it and be sure that ‘actual size’ is selected. You can print in black and white as this printable does not include any color.
- Cut out your step tracker page
You can use a straight edge cutter like this one to cut along the light gray lines.
- Paste/stick the page into your journal
If you used sticker paper, simply peel off the back sheet and place your tracker on your page where you want it.
- Create a color code
In the key area, use different colors to fill in the boxes and then note the step count range for each color on the given line. You can see an example below
The above picture shows an example of how you can use this printable. But, please note that the step ranges listed are only for reference. You will need to create your own ranges to reflect your current fitness ability.
