    Default Pedometer challenge

    Next week I'm going to be tracking my daily total steps. I've got the aptly named "Pedometer" app for my iPhone. So if you've got a pedometer app fire it up and lets see who takes the most steps. The following day I will post up the total along with a screenshot, lets have some fun and a little bit of competition going. I have a desk job though I do walk on my lunch every other day so I'm really interested to see how many steps I take daily.

    I am in... Can you use a FitBit instead of an app to track steps?

    I'm in. Ill be using my FitBit to track my steps. I already wear my tracker daily and sync up every night. This'll be an interesting comparison thread.

    How will everyone be comparing, daily or for the whole week?

    I'm so glad I got some interest :0) Yes you definitely can use any tracker. I will be doing it all week but will be posting my total daily. If not at the end of the day then the next morning. 🆗 this is awesome :0) and I'm dying to see what kind of numbers I get.

    Due to a dead battery on the weekend, long story, I lost half the morning charging my phone. So it will be pretty interesting to see how it differs from tomorrow.

    I'd play along with my Fitbit, but until I can lose the walker I'm only averaging about 2500 steps/day. I miss the 3 miles/day I was doing before this mess started!

    Good decision on the FitBit. They are awesome trackers and their customer service is great if you ever have issues!

    I'm lucky to get that many as well. And I don't have any excuse!!!

    I didn't post yesterday because there's a flu/nasty cold going around my house and I spent most of the day yesterday asleep. Worst of it seems to be behind me though so I'll try to remember to post tonight before bed.

    Day 2 totals. It's been a good start to the week for me. My everyday goal is set at 10,000. I've beaten it both days this week. Some weeks I don't even get enough exercise in to get my goal every day. This challenge has been good for me.

    Good call on the FitBit. You won't be disappointed.

    Here is today for me. Add about 500 more since I still need to go downstairs to pack my lunch for tomorrow.

    Today makes the flaky usage of the app so apparent. It's not even half the day and I'm already almost up to 2K steps. Well lets see how much today ends up being :0) I'm hoping 3K

    I did pretty well yesterday. And yea, Fitbit is the way to go. I've already preordered the new one. I understand it doesn't do stairs, but I don't go anywhere with stairs, so it's not a big deal.
