Fitbit 6: Week 1

We kick off the 6th year of Fitbit use with yet another down week, though I continue to trend in the right direction.  The week got off to a better than usual  start on Sunday, with 3800 steps, thanks to my trip to the Chicago Magic Lounge the night before which kept me out past midnight.  Monday managed to just slip past my old/continuing goal of 7500 steps, despite a double whammy of PI planning in the morning and a DevOps workshop in the afternoon.  Tuesday was not as lucky, as I was only able to score 5600 steps.  Wednesday was a nice bounce back, with 7600 steps on the nose as we wrapped up PI planning.  The workshop wrapped up on Thursday, though I managed to net over 9300 steps.  Friday combined a morning trip to the Tech Café with an afternoon coffee run to score 8700 steps.  Saturday was another disappointment, getting only 4000 steps despite a trip to Evanston for the Purdue/Northwestern basketball game.

Fitbit V: Week 52

We wrap up the year with yet another bad week, though things look to be trending in the right direction as I broke 40,000 steps for the first time since early November.  Things, as usual, got off to a bad start on Sunday, with just over 2200 steps.  Monday was the big day of the week, coming in over 9100 steps.  Tuesday finished over 7600 steps, but set the tone for the rest of the week as I discovered that my furnace had given up the ghost.  Wednesday, I left work early to come home in the afternoon to wait for the repairman, which left me with only 5400 steps.  I repeated that same schedule on Thursday, this time waiting for the installers to arrive with the new furnace, which netted me 4900 steps.  When the install took until 1:30 AM Friday morning, I took the opportunity to leave at lunch for third consecutive day, which I ended with 6100 steps.  Saturday, I ventured out into the city for an exciting night at the Chicago Magic Lounge, which put me just over 5000 steps.

Oh, and I also managed to get roped into a step challenge at work, so I hope that is motivation to start moving again.
