Last year, I made a goal of walking a minimum of 10,000 steps every day in 2015. For motivation, I used a year calendar and color code stickers to visualize my daily accomplishments. I am proud to say that in sickness and in health; rain (snow) or shine - I did it!
Thanks to FitBit, I have some data to share. There's a couple surprises - like October not being as active as I would have thought since I love autumn and January is pretty active considering it is typically the coldest month.
