Fancy Watch Devastation
Wednesday, October 21, 2020
For 2 hours my fancy fitness watch deleted 2 days worth of activity and wiped out a 6 month streak of me closing all my rings. I have diligently made sure I have moved for at least 1 min for 12 hours a day, burned at least 500 cals and recently upped the goal to 600, and did 30 mins of exercise. Every. single. day. No days off.
Glitch. A glitch wiped all that away. I shut down the phone. I rebooted the watch. I stared at it. Repeat. The BFF (handy and very tech savvy) suggested I update to the new operating system. She already knew I hadn't done it without asking. IT WORKED!
That brief time without my streak left me devastated and sad. However, I gave myself a really good pep talk about letting something outside of me dictate my happiness. It is ok to be disappointed that the streak was gone but I know I earned it. I also know WHY I am on this journey. This watch can break or be lost. I am putting in this work to improve my health and I can't lose sight of that. Time to soldier on and get this weight off me, watch or no watch.
