I got invited to workweek hustle challenges last week. They are hard for me due to my desk job. But I was off Monday for President's Day. I jumped in and I was determined to beat the one girl in my first challenge cause she has beat me a few times. The second challenge was new people to me and they were pretty active. I actually didn't think I win that one. But I won both. Fitbit didn't tell me this was a personal record for my workweek hustle, but it had to be (based on the previous record)
Friday rolled around and I had a massage and I was determined to get my 10K steps. That was priority number 1. I knew if I didn't reach that goal I wouldn't win either challenge. I went for a short run at lunch. I walked with a coworker at recess and my boss gave us a bit more time at recess to walk his dogs. I also tried to be more active around the office. My fitbit Charge has an altimeter and it counts floors. The town I work in is hilly. So with a run, recess and a few trips up the stairs in my office I was racking up the floors. Previously I got a badge at 25 floors. I didn't know when the next badge would be but I assumed 50. At the end of the day I went up and down the steps at work about 7 times to reach that goal. I was right. . . there was a badge. . .
This weekend was super nice (unseasonable) weather. We broke records on both Friday and Sat I believe. I hated how hot it was Saturday. I saw 75 as the highest when I was in my car. I don't know where we topped out, but I believe it was higher in order to break the record. It was so hot - Eli got so sweaty during his ride. I had the AC on in my car. I hated it! No joke. I want the bugs to die and this winter has been mild. Back on topic. . . since it was so nice I started a weekend warrior challenge and I was also invited to one. So 2 challenges to motivate me to step, step, step. . . which I did. Winner winner chicken dinner!
|I won them all!|
Fitbit has a friends leader board in the app. It's a revolving 7 day step total. I'm usually near the top of my list. I'm rarely at the top because that spot is held by my cousin who runs non-stop. She can run a half marathon at a moments notice. Drives me nuts! But I am always envious of her having a total of 100K plus. I did that once (that I remember) and I did it again this weekend. Here is a screenshot from last night once I was done stepping for the day.
I'm not going to lie. . . I'm tired. Can I nap now?
