Earlier today when I thought about writing this post I was at 3549 steps. That’s not many at all considering it was already into the afternoon! Wearing the Polar Loop Activity Tracker is great for this reason – without that number I would not have noticed that I spent too much of my morning sitting. It was a great reminder to take more breaks and get up to move more often.
I also decided to have an active evening because of my slow steps for the day. I’ve rearranged my living room and cleaned already. I also plan to take JuJu for a walk afterwards.
So far this week I’ve had a couple good days where I’ve been able to analyze my stats.
I really like the way Polar Loop displays the information about active time tracked, steps counted, calories burned, etc.
It’s also super interesting to see when during the day I’m moving around (or not). I also am pretty amazing that even on days where I’m getting over 10k steps and being pretty active that I’m still sitting for 10 hours. Yikes! I know sitting is a killer! I’m only active for 4.5 hours of my day? That seems like so little!
I’m going to keep wearing the Polar Loop Activity Tracker for the next few weeks and see how much it encourages me to move more often. Checking these numbers is a good reality check and a reminder that I need to do more.
If you don’t use a Polar Loop or Fitbit Flex for activity tracking, I highly recommend it! It’s a great way to monitor your activity levels and adjust until you are living a more active lifestyle naturally. They are both around $100 and you get a lot of use and helpful information from them!
