Wow, my first week with the FitBit was a great one! I ended up coming in #1 out of my "friends" online (most I do actually know in "real life") and I found this aspect to be VERY motivating. I am not really that competitive of a person, but being #1 in any ranking is dang motivating, no?
My FitBit stats for the week:
Total steps: 87,283
Total distance: 37.05 miles
Total calories burned: 17,421
Calories in vs. calories out: +742
Weight change: Haven't gotten up the courage to weight myself yet. Probably won't.
Avg. sleep duration: 7 hrs 44 min.
Here's how I moved:
Monday: 50 min. run/walk 4 miles on the treadmill, 20 min., 2 miles on the elliptical
Tuesday: 60 min. run/walk 5 miles on the treadmill
Wednesday: 60 min. Zumba class and 20 minutes on the treadmill (hopped on the treadmill after class to get my steps up to 10,000!
Thursday: 60 min. Zumba class
Friday: Rest - 6,823 steps
Saturday: "long" run 5 miles on the treadmill
Sunday: 10 min. bike, 10 min. elliptical, 25 min. treadmill
So, as you can see, I moved a lot!! However, my calorie intake was higher than my goal, so I do not expect to have moved on the scale. I really need to get my calories under control. My weakness is food. I eat what I want, when I want it. Absolutely no willpower.
I was a little disappointed to see that both days of school last week averaged 6,000 steps per day. More than the average employee, I'm sure, as I spend most of my time on my feet but I was surprised that it did not end up being more. Maybe with this awareness I can boost that number up a bit.
I am hoping these weekly posts help me out! With my goals that I posted yesterday, and having to put all of this out there, it should hopefully motivate me to be better each week. I cannot wait to see what my stats look like when it gets nicer out and my mileage with race training gets high!!
