I also like having a fitness app that is not focused on my weight or my calories. I have too long a history of disordered eating and obsessive behaviors with those type of numbers. But making sure I get enough activity in during the day? It's perfect for me and doesn't trigger any sort of weird behaviors.
This was my step count by the end of the work day:
You can see the bargraph on the bottom that shows when I get most of my activity in. The tallest spikes are my breaks when I go outside and walk around. The smaller spikes are when I take an unscheduled break to stretch my legs, usually walking up the stairs or something.
But that's great! Almost 10,000 steps before I get home!
I didn't walk the dog at all yesterday, because I had to go bridesmaid dress shopping with my friend who's wedding I am in. So I ended the day with this step count:
So, I feel pretty good about my activity levels, even though I'm at a desk job. Days when I walk the dog or go hiking must be well over 10,000 steps, which is that sort of generally recommended number of steps we should be taking in a day to be active.
I had a drink with my friend after shopping last night (which was very successful, I got a beautiful dress, and ordered it a few sizes too large just in case I am pregnant by her wedding next year... We are officially going to try in January). Snow started to fall while we were at the restaurant, it was a really lovely evening.
Off to work! <3
