Over the last week I didn’t meet 10,000 steps three days but I met my goal of not having any days less than 6,000 steps. Because last week I didn’t have the Fitbit for most of the first two days I don’t have exact step counts in my Fitbit app (how I normally compile these posts). I know thought that Monday I was over 10,000 steps and believe I was into the 14,000 or 15,000 range. Instead of Including a typed out step count this week I decided to try something new and include a screenshot of my step chart on Fitbit.
I am frustrated that I didn’t make 10,000 yesterday and I am quite confused how I didn’t. I don’t think the Fitbit Charge HR accurately tracks steps taken while doing chores. I spent several hours moving things around the new place, carrying stuff, and shopping. All I ended up with was slightly over 3,000 steps. Typically in an hour though I should be able to get around at least 6,000 steps. The math doesn’t really add up. What matters though is that I knew I got a workout yesterday by moving heavy boxes.
You may notice that I didn’t include a weight in this weeks weekly check-in. This is because I found that not having to think about weighing myself during the week actually made me happier. I am going to continue to try this until December. Instead of using weight as the main thing to track my fitness I am going to use steps and activities performed during the week.
This Weeks Goal
Last week I liked having the goal of having at least 6,000 steps per day. This week I want to up that to 6,500. If I can continue to make the number of steps go up every week I should continue to improve my fitness and activity levels.
