Hey fitbit! Thanks a million.
These were my total steps during the three months that I have owned this device. I purchased the device on September 3.
|NOVEMBER 1 - NOVEMBER 30|
SEPTEMBER 677,302 STEPS
OCTOBER 920,446 STEPS
NOVEMBER 1,101,618 STEPS
through the first three months of being a 'fitbitter' I have logged 2,699,366 steps.
This level of steps, this level of walking is completely unsustainable. At some point, I imagine that I will ratchet down to one hour of walking per day, or perhaps return to the elliptical machine, especially when the cold wintry weather really settles in. Nevertheless, I am amazed that I have accomplished so much. It does make me wonder how little activity I might have been involved in prior to September 3 without the silent taunting of the fitbit. These days, I am always eager to run any errand that involves walking. I walk in place (march in place) when waiting in line. I walked in place while waiting for my dentist appointment yesterday. I know I may look like a bit of a kook. And I freely admit - I do not care. Many people give me a knowing smile, with the question: 'Getting your steps in?' Every half hour spent walking (even walking in place) surely is expending more calories than sitting down in a chair. I have stepped when watching what little television I do watch - especially when in a hotel room. It just seems like a much better way to spend an hour of TV time than being a couch potato. I had previously mastered the art of being a couch potato. I prefer to be a master stepper. I prefer to be a walker. I prefer to be fitter. I prefer being the person today, over the person that I was one year ago. Even when I am unhappy about life's many curveballs, I can always derive satisfaction from my daily accomplishment of exercising. A bad day after walking ten miles, is a far superior day to a bad day that does not include a ten mile walk.
