step count track spark keep going

Thursday, October 26, 2017

Today my fitbit took a break, but I didnt.
Put it on this morning after my bath and must have added around 1,000 steps just here doing housework, sweeping and vaccuuming, and back and forth around the house.
But when I get to the track and sync it, it has 250 steps, I knew that had to be wrong and assumed as soon as I manuallysynced it again it would pick them up.
Never happened, it would go up as high as about 1300 steps then drop back to 250.
So, I turned it off and relied on good old fashioned clock to time myself, I know that one lap around for me is about 450 steps. 5 laps is a mile.
It usually takes me about 4.5 minutes to go one lap around, I usually track 1 mile right at 2250 steps, give or take a few.....
So, after 80 minutes of walking, I assumed I had somewhere near 3.5 miles and checking my spark exercise minutes from previous days of walking 80 minutes, I am guessing that my actual steps as of right now are around 11 thousand.
But fitbit only shows 9.
It is all good, I dont know why it wasnt counting my steps and it never did count a single minute although I walked an hour and 20 minutes.
I will probably add several more thousand thru the day as I am going to be mopping the bathroom and kitchen and utility room.
I am cleaning out my furnace filter and getting some weather prep done around here today.
Just trying to stay busy so I wont worry so much about tomorrows upcoming weigh in.
It is a good day so far,

    Sometimes technology can be so frustrating! It's wonderful that you know your steps per lap and can approximate your steps even when the FitBit fails you.
