Walktober Stats

A month of walking… Let’s do the numbers…

All these stats and graphs are provided by a Fitbit Charge 3 that I wear every day. I just grabbed screen shots from the Fitbit web site.

Wow, check it out! Starting slowly and increasing over the month for a total of 409,059 steps in October 2021. That’s quite a “step up” from the numbers of previous months.

Totally floored by this number! We only have stairs at home, there are none at work, but I think a lot of these are from the inclines in the streets I walk. 1,088 floors? I’ll take it! (I’m still not sure exactly happened around October 16th & 17th but since that was a weekend I’m guessing I was pretty damn active those days.)

I’m going the distance. (Though I’m not going for speed.) I walked 192.7 miles in October. That is…insane! But hey, I’ve got more miles to go before I sleep.

Burned at the wire? No, but burned 107,844 calories. I’ve also been burning more calories than I take in each day, so that means weight loss, which is a good thing, because I (like many people) added some “Pandemic Pounds” I wouldn’t mind losing. For the month of October I shed about 10 pounds. I’ve got a bit more to go but it’s a good start. (I’ve also started eating a bit better, including smaller breakfasts and, alas… less burritos.)

Hey Pete,
Maureen (Adrian’s wife) here. Adrian sent me the link to your blog. Interesting read. Happy to hear about your new walking routine. I, too, unbeknownst to me, gained a bunch during COVID-19 lockdowns. About dropped my jaw when I weighed in at a doctor’s appointment. Am now working on staying back on track with my eating and working out again. I’ve lost 25lbs and am trying, a day a time, to get back to a more reasonable weight and eating routine. Keep up the good work, Pete, and thanks for the inspiration!!
