Since getting the Fitbit, I’ve been trying to walk 250 steps or more every hour. It pings me 10 minutes before an hour is to finish if I haven’t already completed my 250+ steps.
Looking at my weekly averages, there are of course good weeks (5 of 8 hours on an average per day) and then there are bad weeks (2-3 of 8 hours on an average per day). I’ve been trying to build this habit for a really long time now.
I can start the day with a lot of determination, but something or the other during the work day stops me from “getting up.” Sometimes I’m so engrossed in my work that I don’t even remember the device vibrating to let me know I need to get up.
I try to listen to it, yes, but I probably need to do more. I don’t think I’ve ever had a day that was 8 of 8.
Still, this is infinitely better than my previous lifestyle. It’s a step up (that is an intentional double pun and I’m proud of it). I’ll take it.
