Time to check in on my New Year's Resolution. It has turned out to have been a good choice: committing to averaging 10,000 steps a day has forced me to make a big change in my behavior and to be consistent about it over a long period of time.
At midnight on August 31st / September 1st I have walked over two and a half million steps (2,520,074). That's a daily average of 10,328 steps.
So far this year, I have walked 10,000 or more steps on exactly two thirds of all the days in the year. I am currently working on a streak of 16 days in a row over 10,000 and my longest streak this year was 27.
The most steps I walked in any single day was 28,283 steps one day while I was in India. The month with the highest daily average was July (15,113 steps/day).
Current plans are to maintain (and increase my average) until the end of the year and then make the same resolution next year.
Keep on Sparkin' my friends.
