Mine varies based on how I trend. So if I do a lot of steps one day the next day my goal is more than before. Right now my goal is at 6,810 but it tends to be closer to 8,000 I’ve just been lazy the last month
I range from a minimum of 12,450 to about 18,000 per day, every day, 365 days a year. I don’t walk fast anymore, but, boy oh boy, am I steady. My main goal daily is to burn 3,000 calories at least. I walk to accomplish that.
From Nov 8, 2019 to Nov 8, 2020 so far, that is 5,460,646 steps, 2,412.45 miles, and 1763 floors, for an average of 14,961 steps/day, 6.61 miles/day and 4.8 floors/day.
Since July 1, 2015, when I first strapped on a fitbit, while recovering from a broken leg and subsequent bone infections from the plates and rod in my leg, my fitbit “lifetime stats” are 20,965,130 steps, 9,293.40 miles and 9,854 floors.
But hey, who’s counting?
I am 79 and my feet hurt (along with my legs, knees, hips, and back). My body is a temple… Ancient and crumbling.
Can you remember when you were a kid and you wanted to be older? Me too. Well this is not what I expected… and I thought it would take longer.
I used to hear my elders complain about the “aches and pains” that come with age. Now I am that elder and the phrase, “aches and pains” has real meaning.
