Stairs & FitBit
Sunday, April 21, 2013
Just walked up 10 flights of steps - up and downstairs on the stairs to my Mom's basement. Was just under 10 minutes under FitBit activity timer. But in SparkPeople activity tracker on my Iphone app, there is no listing for "climbing stairs" Mom's staircase has a slightly shallower "rise" for their steps (my step-dad built it to his specs and he had Charcot-Marie-Tooth syndrome and he couldn't lift his feet that high - so their staircase has 16 steps, not the usual 13-14 steps.). There is a listing for "StairMaster" machine but only for minutes - nothing to indicate how many flights I went. Was breathing hard tho - got distracted so not sure what my heart rate was, but was at least 130+, pretty sure of that!! Pant pant!
Any case, I don't believe I am racking up the minutes of exercise that FitBit claims I am. Flattering to think that, but the bottom line doesn't match my bottom end...
