It is so helpful to be able to look at your activity and see the patterns. I know that I definitely need to get up and move more during the work day.
I work so hard to make all 5 of those little dots light up (each dot = 2,000 steps - my daily goal is 10,000 steps). In the winter, my husband and I strapped on our tennis shoes and became mall walkers - just to get in my steps. It motivated my husband and he got a Garmin for his birthday!
I have a treadmill now - so that really helps me get those steps in quickly. I hated the treadmill at first, but now I hop on and read on my Kindle. I can make the font bigger so I'm able to read and walk, walk, walk! (I have come to terms with the fact that I am not a runner - I have had too many calf / back issues.)
