FitBit work challenge
Monday, September 14, 2015
As part of the discounted FitBit I received from work, there is a 10-week challenge.The woman and man with the highest average daily steps will get some type of prize. I'm really excited about this but am quickly realizing there is no way I can win. lol.
One guy, whom I believe is in maintenance, gets about 23,000 steps a day. OMG. I can't even. If I have a day with 16,000 steps, I'm totally beat. One of my coworkers got 17,000 steps yesterday without much effort but she's in way good shape. I got over 11,000 yesterday but that was a challenge because two solid hours of my day were spent in the swimming pool, which does not count.
On one hand it's kind of fun to compete and try to reach those levels. I'm ranked in the top 10 for the week out of 60 people so that's not bad. However, realistically I just am not at the fitness level of some people in the competition, which can be a little discouraging. When I work out and exercise really my only competition is myself.
So I'm wondering what you guys think. Do you like competitions? (including races) Have you been in any? Do they help or discourage you?
