One of my goals to achieve by 30 is:
- Get the next 2 lifetime miles Fitbit badges. (Lots of steps!)
I chose this goal because I wanted something a little out of reach that was also cumulative. It means I’ll have to consistently work toward it to hit my goal!
The next two badges to achieve:
- 350 mi (563 km): Hawaii
- 500 mi (804 km): Serengeti
As a stretch goal I might also push to hit the one after that:
- 736 mi (1,184 km): Italy
I’m also participating in daily goal challenges with anyone that invites me (friend me and ask!) and a “Workweek Hustle” challenge with my coworkers during the week. My Fitbit finally tracked all my steps this week and my daily results looked like this:
Monday steps: Monday was my best day of the week since I knew I wanted to start off strong. I hit the gym and walked several times throughout the day.
Tuesday steps: On Tuesday I just barely hit my 10,000 steps per day goal but I did it! I feel like this is pretty representative of a typical day.
Wednesday steps: Wednesday was my worst day of the week. It was an incredibly stressful day at work and a long one too. By the time I left and got through my super slow commute home I had to go to Financial Peace University class. There wasn’t enough time for a workout and my steps reflected it.
Thursday steps: Steps were great on Thursday as I participated in lots of Fitbit challenges for the day. I also managed to hit the gym for elliptical, biking, and weights.
Friday steps: Activity on Friday was great and included almost all walking! I walked Juju in the morning and after work, I walked to lunch to meet friends, I walked across the Downtown core from my parking garage to the stadium for a basketball game, and I walked around the stadium too. There was lots of walking consistently throughout the day.
And I ended up winning the Workweek Hustle this week! Woohoo!
So far, so good this week. I’m off to a good start racking up miles toward my goals.
Fitbit Review Notes
I’m still loving my Fitbit Flex that was provided through my job, but I have had some trouble with it. It’s had trouble connecting and tracking as well. Some days I’ve worn it all day long and then at the end it said I walked zero steps which was obviously wrong. I think the tracking problems have to do with it not always being charged up fully so I’ve been trying to charge it more often. I did that this week and had no problems with it working for once!
You can read my previous Fitbit One review and I’ll be posting a full review of my Flex soon!
