Tracking Steps

I like the fact that Fitbit keeps track of my walking,.telling me how many steps and miles that I have done. Yesterday I had 2 challenges going on. I am still trying to figure out how miles are calculated.

I like the concept of the daily showdown challenge. Everyone starts together and just starts stepping all day, to see who can get the most.



It’s my 2nd time doing the “Goal Day” challenge, and I don’t really like the idea of it.
BECAUSE
My personal goal is set at 5,000 steps.
Mary’s goal is for 2,000 steps.
My daughter, Sabrina, has a goal of 10,500 steps.
Joyce set a goal of 5,000 steps
While Heather went for 12,000 daily steps.

So at a quick glance while it looks like I came in first place..I did not have the most steps.
(My goal) 5,000 “X” 332 (percent I went over by) 332.29 is more accurate to get my total steps of 16,614.
Sabrina’s goal of 10,500 “X” 190 (her percentage)== approximately 19,950 (19,971 actual) steps. In my opinion her 19,971 steps beat my 16,614. If her own personal goal wasn’t so high then her name would have been on top where it belongs. So if anyone in power of the #fitbit company ever reads this…please fix this!

Guess that’s why they have 2 different challenges, so people can do them whichever way they like… I will be sticking with the “daily showdown”. I am to nit-picky at the results..even when results say that I win.
Even Heather’s goal of 12,000 steps “X” 158== 18,960 steps is more than my end result of 16,614 steps. If Heather and Sabrina had a daily goal of 5,000 steps like me then the result s graph would look different.

So just because my name is in the top position and I got a badge saying that I won the goal day challenge…does not mean that I stepped better than everyone else. But my top position in the daily showdown means I kicked butt. I didn’t invite my daughter to that challenge.


My steps for the last week. Couple good days along with more days of resting and being lazy. Believe me, I can’t have a good day, everyday. I could blame it on the fact that I ‘m to old and outta shape for that, or just blame it on the heat.

Not sure how I walked over 5 miles yesterday..but if that’s the case, then I should be able to walk to the Sand Dunes in October when the weather cools down. The dunes are 2 miles away.
