I never really bothered to keep track of the number of steps I clocked in daily until we were in a partial lockdown during the MCO recently. With our days locked up at home everyday for months, I was terribly worried of being sedentary and later had to suffer from the consequences. It was then that I strapped on my 5-year old Fitbit Charge HR throughout the day to keep track of my steps. I tried to move around in the house as much as I could and did exercises outside our unit on the corridor. Later, I started to climb stairs daily from our unit on the 5th floor to the 18th floor and descended to the ground floor before walking up to the 5th floor again. When the number of steps I clocked in increased, I got motivated to move even more. For a ‘kiasu’ health and fitness freak, it gives me such a lot of satisfaction whenever my Fitbit vibrates and confetti rains down the screen of my tracker to congratulate me for achieving 10k steps😁
I exercise 5 times a week from Mondays through Fridays. On some days, I exercise twice a day – once from 6:20 am – 7:00 am after sending off Cass up the school van and another time from 7:30 am – 8:00 am after dropping off Sherilyn at school. On days that I exercise twice a day, my total step count for the day exceeds 18k.
My step count yesterday as of 7:50 pm was 17,116, totaling approximately 12km, as shown in my new Fitbit Charge 4. I’m loving my new tracker to bits!
With a mission accomplished, I had the allowance to buy my favorite Nyonya kuih from the roadside stall after my run this morning 🤭
