No that is not the number of wrinkles I have or the number of gray hairs on my head. ( Only God knows how many of those I have!) This is the number of steps I logged on my FitBit last year. On my one year anniversary of owning a FitBit, I received an email with my year's statistics. Every Tuesday I receive an email updating me on my week's activity and I am happy they send out a yearly report as well. My daily goal is 9000 steps and I have been meeting that pretty regularly as of late.
The average American FitBit owner logged 965,925 steps over a year. And if you are wondering what the mileage is...I have walked 752 miles in one year. The average American walkes 674 miles. I have to admit that I take off Sundays. I rarely get 3000 steps on the Sabbath. 3000 steps is about what you would log in a normal day's activity. I think that the body needs a rest day. Let those feet and muscles have a breather. Of course I did not come up with that one either!!
I have to say that I have been very pleased with my FitBit. I do think it keeps me accountable and it encourages me to get up and move! I am still not where I want to be weight wise. 15 more pounds and I could live with that...I know that I will never be a small person. To be honest, Menopause is a game changer in more ways than one!:) But I want to be healthy and active enough to keep up with my grandkids.
I have the bottom of the line FitBit...just logs steps for me. I am thinking of getting a pretty pink cover for this year as my old black one is starting to split. I saw a three pack at Target that contained a variety of colors so I may head there and get it for myself as a reward for a year's hard work.
Don't forget to come back in the morning to see who gets a pretty pair of red fingerless gloves!!
