January Steps Goal Exceeded

Friday, February 01, 2013


One of my new goals is to average 7,000 steps per day walking. I'm happy to share that I exceeded that goal for the first month. Yay me! Not by a lot: I was over by just 6,512 steps total for January. But, I figure that's like cramming a 32nd day of walking into January. Here's my SP steps tracking report:

I was not tracking steps previously so cannot really quantify how much of an improvement this is over say a year ago. But, an improvement it is for sure.

I use my Fitbit One to track steps and have been pretty faithful about keeping the Fitbit attached to me at all times. There was one day when I left the house without it; however, that wasn't a big walking day so it's not like I lost many steps because of that. I'm trying not to obsess over making sure I have it clipped on as soon as I get up; but, it is a little addicting.


I love this Fitbit and it definitely helps push me to get up off my butt and walk. This month, I started my training for the Flying Pig Half Marathon walk so that is certainly helping to rack up my steps. After the HM in May, I am going to have to find new motivation to make my steps goal -- will deal with that later.

How are you doing with your 2013 goals?
Do you have a steps goal?
Do you use a Fitbit or some other device, pedometer, etc. to count steps? Does it help you to walk / run more?

I hope all my Spark friends are off to a good start for 2013 in terms of your health and fitness goals. If you don't have formal goals about setting one today? Setting a goal really can help you to achieve that and more.

Have a fabulous February! I'll be back at month's end to report on my steps count again. Until then, keep on moving!
