Monday was my "rest day"... no organized exercise... the three trackers gave the following results:
OMRON pedometer - 11921 steps
Fitbit Flex - 11116 steps
Spark Activity tracker - 10636
As before, the Fitbit Flex was off for a period of charging time, and the Spark activity tracker was off from the time I took off my shoes before bed, and the time before I put them on in the morning. The OMRON I wear even on my jammies, so it even picks up the "up in the night" trips from bed down the hall!
Interesting note about the Spark Activity tracker is that it considered only two of my break walks as "workout" events yesterday, because it only counts continuous activity of 10 minutes or longer as a workout event. I had been stopped on my noon walk by a fellow employee I'd met by encountering her when I did loops in the basement of the office building. We stood and talked for a while (she's recovering from an injury, so it wasn't a question of walking on)... she, by the way, is a fascinating, graceful woman and I had to ask if she was a dancer... yes, she is.
Anyway, today I pulled one of my "peopled out" pouts and came home after work... to find my volunteer discount code in my e-mail... which essentially gives me the early bird discount if I want to sign on to the Rev3 Wisconsin Dells next June... that gives me 9 months to train from RIGHT NOW to up my distance to Olympic. So the question before me at this point is, "am I ready to commit?"
Life is good... Spark on! Oh, and for those of you who asked about the "Glow Getter" award, it's automatic if your Spark Tracker tracked 10,000 steps in a day! Here's the tracker with the glow lights on, I think it's cool - reminds me of a flying saucer.
