I’ve completed my first year of 12,000 steps of day

Continuing my streak of 10,000 steps a day, I decided to up my game to 12,000 steps a day. That’s not an average, I walk at least 12,000 steps a day. My original plan started back on September 18th, but for some reason I missed my 12,000 steps a day on the 24th, so I had to start over.

Here are my stats for the past year:

I am not a fan of August…

It’s 850,000 steps less than the year before, but I didn’t get embroiled in a step competition this year.

Time to retire the Fitbit One

Let’s pour one out for my Fitbit One. It’s battery is still going strong (although if I use it for sleep tracking it needs charged every 2 or 3 days) even after 6 years. I bought it on September 16th, 2014. First year of the Fitbit barely broke 3 million steps.

I bought an Apple Watch a year and a half ago, but it had an issue with steps. Whenever I would use my treadmill desk, it would not be able to calculate the steps correctly. A couple of months ago I did some research, which led me to purchasing an arm band for my Apple Watch. Now my Apple Watch can accurately track steps not only when I’m on the treadmill desk, but also when I’m grocery shopping or push mowing the lawn.
