I’ve been using a FitBit for two years now and I’m happy to say that it has encouraged me to be conscious about exercising. I now walk regularly which also gets me a break during the day at work for sunlight and reading. For January, I decided to commit to a goal much higher than my typical 11,000 steps per day: 500,000 steps in a month. I made it, but just barely.
Â It’s not a sustainable pace, but I will try to keep things up over the coming year.
