Day 51- FITBIT UPDATE: Walk to local shops

Last week was the first time I created a Fitbit habit to improve my Fitbit statistics. Since then, I have been making sure that I drink a litre of water at work every day. Here’s last week’s results:

As you can see, there was little advancement apart from the increase in water consumption. But that’s okay because that is what this challenge is all about. With each new habit completed, it is inevitable that the statistics improve. Now I have to pick another new habit to see improvement in a category next week. The rule is I have to pick something in red that I did poorly in.

NEW HABIT: Walk to local precinct instead of using my car

I’m limited with the options I have to improve on. It’s either more steppage or exercise and at the moment, at this time of year, that’s really challenging. All I can think of now, that is achievable, is promising to walk to my local precinct instead of using the car. I often go straight from work and have to pay an 80p car park charge. This habit means I’ll get steps and save money.

“I will always walk to the local shops instead of taking the car”

Update: I have abandoned this habit because it has proved really inconvenient. I’m just not ready or organised enough to make the commitment.
