Spark Tracker Weekly Recap

Thursday, December 26, 2013

Quick and dirty blog to track my numbers for the "future fabulous me" to see....

I'm still loving my Spark Tracker although I am disappointed when I don't get that "goal met" sticker by the end of the day. There were a few days that I did not make my 11,000 steps and one day that I did not even make 10,000 steps. But, the silly little thing makes me work harder the next day so at least my averages stay good.

My tracker numbers have almost totally replaced my obsession with the bathroom scale (a good thing) but I don't think the bathroom scale will show any great improvement if I would hop on it (which I'm NOT) because my holiday eating has been holding me back. It is not out of control, but I know that even a few extra cookies or bites of this and that will hold me back on the bathroom scale.

So, I'm happy to have something else to focus on and report for now!

Averages for the week of 12/7/13 - 12/14/13

11,630 steps per day
40 minutes of work out time per day
157 minutes of total "movement" time during the day

Averages for 12/15/2013 through 12/21/2013

11,633 steps per day
43 minutes of work out time per day
158 minutes of total "movement" time during the day

Not any great improvement, but I'm glad I did not drop any lower than that. Lots of driving, theater events and sitting around chatting with friends made me have to scramble some nights to meet my 11,000 step goal. Fell short a few days, but made up for it on others.

However, I know that I lose weight in the kitchen and get fit at the there is still room for lots of improvement.

That's all for now folks!

    It is bit obsessive, but in a good way. I love "lose weight in the kitchen and get fit in the gym". emoticon

    Making an 11,000 step goal is better than so many other people do. Like that you are looking for continued improvement but don't beat yourself up too much. You are a very bright spark!

My tracker helps to keep me moving also. This week has been slow with the traveling (driving) and visiting and my goal right now is only 8,500 steps. I want it to reachable but a challenge for me. Right now I am trying to beat my goals on a weekly base and then increase my goal.

Have a wonderful new year.

    emoticon It looks like those Glow Getter Awards have led to A Lot of Marching In Place for many of us, LOL! Not a "Bad Obsession" I think.
