19. wow. That is amazing
I walk to lunch a decent amount when I do go out, which is not that often, and have had people give me a funny look. It sucks too because the area where I work is about as pedestrian unfriendly as you can imagine. All of the intersections have "no pedestrian signs" and the closest cross walk is about a quarter mile out of the way - which if I am on "a walk" is not a big problem, but when I am just trying to get to the grocery store across the street and right back it's annoying.

Also, there are few sidewalks, and most are impractical and end abruptly. I hate suburbia and wish I could find a job closer to where I live.
