Step Step Step


I realized my phone app had step challenges, like duh. I am so observant at times. LOL

I began doing them in November. As you can see, I didn’t get quite halfway. I didn’t even get a star! Boo hoo. A few steps were lost due to not charging my watch or grabbing the phone when I didn’t have my watch on, but that was only a few steps. And I rather enjoy sitting on my butt. ๐Ÿ™‚

I need to change how I do stuff.

  • More get up and move breaks (my cave is in the basement, water on main floor)
  • Perhaps read while walking on the treadmill
  • Could always clean more (who couldn’t)
  • Go window shopping (that could be dangerous on the pocketbook)
  • Walk down to the mailbox (end of the street, cluster mailboxes)
  • I have 3 flights of stairs I COULD walk up and down

I will have to get creative! ๐Ÿ™‚


Happy to say in December, I did go over halfway!

I didn’t make it because I had my grandson here so I had to play with him on the floor! LOL Good excuse huh? ๐Ÿ™‚ย  By the next time I see him, he may be walking, then I will have steps galore! ๐Ÿ™‚

Look, I did get one star bonus for achieving the steps in a certain amount of time. Yay me!

So far this month, I am doing great! I am going for all the steps! I have achieved a star, missed the second one by only a few steps. ๐Ÿ™‚

I definitely feel better and the challenge gets me up and moving more so that is great!

Do you use a step watch or app or both? ๐Ÿ™‚

I am amazed how many steps the top people get. Crazy but a good crazy! Goals are good to keep one motivated! Stay tuned!




I am a writer and an artist, at least in my mind. :) I love to read!

  1. Being aware of our steps is the first step, right? (Pun intended. ๐Ÿ˜) I have a simple pedometer I use. I gave up on the Fitbit. I donโ€™t have time to log in data. Life is short enough. But a pedometer helps me make sure I have those 10,000 steps in. Hereโ€™s to our stepping along into 2018!

  2. I think the fitbits might be great for obsessives, but I feel like I walk enough to know when I haven’t walked enough. I know how I feel when I walk for an hour on the treadmill, or two hours outside — same feeling, same mileage.
    I like the cheerful design of this step counter!
    It’s a good idea to know how much more active we should be. On Sundays after a long week and a busy Saturday, I don’t need a device to tell me I shouldn’t sit on this couch half the day ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Very true. Agree. My gear watch likes to mistake watching TV for sleeping. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I like my gear watch for all the other stuff too. Unfortunately I switched from a Samsung phone to a pixel so I can’t answer the calls on it anymore but I do see the call. I needed a push with the annoying get moving because I sit too much. ๐Ÿ˜‚
