Smoothing out walking camera

OK, so I have a horrid 1 1/2 minute clip of me walking (quickly) down a nice little road in France holding my camera in my hand. Some bad bouncing due to walking and far too much movement all around.
I’m using Adobe AE and Mocha that came with my CS5 suite…
There has got to be some way to just reduce camera jitter all the way through the clip. (Preferably just smoothing things out, rather than totally fixing something stable every few seconds or so…)
So far, I’ve taught myself enough so that I can cut the whole thing into 4-5 second clips and then stabilize each one (by picking something hanging on a wall or in the distance, etc…>).
Can someone tell me how I can just tell Mocha (or Adobe AE) to smooth out all movement, based on some sort of number of frames or something?
While I’m just learning Adobe tools (some Photoshop experience) I’m very computer literate, so even a hint as to what sort of approach will yield useful results.
I’ve tried going through the clip with Mocha and keying up objects to track. The problem I have is when I try to key off a new item after a previous one has gone off screen. Is there a way to track an object, then say “quit tracking” then a little later say “track this object” then say quit, etc… in that way I could just go through the clip and pick a new object every 4-5 seconds to stabilize off of…
Any advice would be helpful. (I’ve watched about an hour of various tutorials but they nearly always are trying to do something far fancier than what I want - add in objects or remove objects, etc… I don’t want to introduce something new to my video, just smooth out what is already there…)

I have a video tutorial on how to stabilize a shot using Mocha for After Effects here (http://www.mamoworld.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=96%3Atutorial-stabilize-motion-without-the-need-to-zoom-in&catid=35%3Atutorials&Itemid=62&lang=en):
