This was my last week at work until the fall. I finished up my project and submitted it on time. I was able to get in some steps during the day by walking up and down the stairs and around the hallways while at work. However, midweek I hurt my hip a bit doing this, so I tried to take it a little easier while still reaching my daily step and exercise goals. Tomorrow (Saturday), I head on vacation – 2 full days in the car, so I expect the step count to be down over the weekend. While on vacation, I usually still go on my walks, but I spend a lot of time in/near the lake, so I won’t be wearing my Fitbit. I wonder how that will impact my day?!
Friday: 34 minutes walking, 10,712 steps/day
Saturday: 61 minutes walking, 12,476 steps/day
Sunday: 53 minutes walking, 12,704 steps/day
Monday: 76 minutes walking, 14,075 steps/day
Tuesday: 50 minutes walking, 12,669 steps/day
Wednesday: 47 minutes walking, 10,734 steps/day
Thursday: 50 minutes Body Flow + 50 minutes walking, 15,017 steps/day
* After a comment about my timed walking and the number of steps I record, I realized it might be confusing. I track two different goals. The first goal is a timed duration of exercise – moving with the intent to raise my heart rate and get in some cardiovascular work. This is what I’m mean when I say “45 minutes walking.” The second goal is total daily steps. This is from my Fitbit, which measures all steps from 12:00AM – 11:59PM, exercise included. I hope that clarifies my movement data.
