Minor scare: I left the LAX security line without my Fitbit. I had put it one of my shoes and when the shoes went through the conveyor belt, the Fitbit fell through. I had made it a few gates down before I realized all my steps were for no reason! Luckily, I found it. That's what I get for having already flown 11 1/2 hours today and being "off".
I just got my first 25K daily steps badge! I think my next goal will be to get the 75 daily stairs badge. I have a feeling I'll need another day hike to accomplish that one as that's how I got the 50 badge.
My travel and meetings and whatnot for March came to an end last week. Yesterday was the first time I'd been able to get to the gym this month. Almost hit 10k steps, for the first time this month. I can feel it in my hip flexors this morning.
I was completely exhausted last night so I forgot to wear my Fitbit to bed. When I got up this morning, I couldn't find it. I looked everywhere. I couldn't believe I lost this one after washing/drying/destroying the first one. So...on a whim, I go outside and check the car tonight. What do I find neatly attached to my seatbelt? Yup. My Fitbit. :)
Ugh. It wasn't enough that I spilled soda all over me on the drive home yesterday. I've managed to kill my FitBit by laundry. I remember saying to myself that if I ever got one, I'd never manage to wash it. <sigh>
All walking and no rest makes me a tired boy. 10 miles down and 22000 steps before noon. First walk (4+ miles) with Sarah on foot, and second walk (almost 6 miles) with the boys in the stroller. Graphs from RunKeeper.
PROJECT: Let's Get Tamara To Her Fundraising Goal -- 66% there, she needs $755 more by May 1st. She's running a FULL MARATHON to raise money for cancer research. EDIT: 100%!!!!!!!!! WE DID IT! THANK YOU FRIENDFEED! - http://pages.teamintraining.org/ocie...
I'm pretty excited to see how just 30 min or so extra walking over my lunch break or after work is about all I need to hit 10k/day now. Next goal will be to try to reduce the % of sedentary time in my day.
Bah. My clip broke this evening. I've emailed fitbit hoping there's a way to buy/get a replacement -it's an Ultra, so they're not selling them any more. It's just under a year since I got it, so maybe it'll fall under the warranty? But I'd really just like a replacement clip, since the Ultra works fine for me.
Using the exercise bike registers on the fitbit - at least when it's hooked onto my bra. The count for what I did on it looks close to what a step count would be, so I'm going to keep wearing it while on the bike - it'll help keep me motivated.
Here are my sleep results after adjusting to the "Sensitive" setting. Based on how I feel right now, these numbers don't seem too far off. I'll have to run in this mode a few days to see how things average out.
