BH won a Fitbit Alta HR at work. He wasn't interested in it, so I'm the beneficiary! I haven't set a goal yet, but I'm trying to get some extra steps in on this the 3rd day of use.

my activity band only lets me set my daily goal by category not quantity. I've selected the lowest activity goal which is often too ambitious for me. it wants me to jog for 51 minutes, or walk for 2h10m, or stand and do light work for 7hr30m. As i go about my day, it reduces all 3 goals until i've acomplished one of them.

Today, i did 7299 steps, and completed about 60% of my goal.

12monrhs ago, i was averaging 2500 to 4500 steps per day at the same job so i am happy with my progress

I am at 80 consecutive days of meeting my daily step goal.

2 more days and I tie my longest step goal streak, almost there. I've averaged 13,665 steps a day the last 7 days and 13,570 the last 4 weeks.

I'm using my new Fitbit and trying for 10,000 steps a day. I've made it on the last 3 days and hoping to get there again today.

I won't make 10,000 steps today, but I did take a 20 minute walk before the rain started.

I made my goal today, had the dog dragging me around.

I carried my umbrella and had to pull it out once. Most of it passed over in small, spotty, patches which formed a larger mass to the east of us. Lucky etherea, but you probably don't need any more rain either. I think we are about to approach the flood levels of 2015.

I got over 11,000 steps on Monday. It's so much easier when I'm at work even though I take a walk on the weekends.
