overthinking but not overstepping....

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

went over my carbs this evening, well, ANY carbs were not supposed to be on the menu.
but I made honey some waffle fries and he didnt finish them, blah, I did....
I walked 15 laps at my track this morning which is 3 miles.
my fitbit had me at 1120 steps to start, ok.....
15 laps equals roughly 7800 steps (give or take)
sometimes fitbit doesnt count exactly, and i might end up shorted by as many as a couple hundred.

but today it was 2900 steps short.
map app 3.19 miles fitbit 2.63
my map app and my fitbit were off by that much and my counting it in my own head by practice and just knowing how many steps i normally get after a 3 mile walk...

fitbit has shorted me more often lately, but this was by far the biggest gap and i dont know if it was possibly internet connection, because normally it syncs once i get wifi
not today.
by my calculations i should be right at 13 thousand steps at this time (give or take)
and fitbit has me at 10600
might be time to upgrade or just stop hyper focusing on fitbit altogether.

    Okay, that sure explains a lot! I didn't realize other people were experiencing the same thing. I thought that I had just overestimated my activity. I'm glad I read this!
