What walking has done for me last year
I have been mentioning about Sweatcoin app here and in noise. This is just one of the apps that I use to measure my steps when I am out walking/jogging. What I like is the comprehensive summary feature that it has.
I haven't been as active last year. There were only some months that I did a lot of walking. I know I could have done some indoor exercises but the laziness got the best of me.
I would like to share my achievements here just to have a reference if how much I faired this year.
NOTE: All photos here were screen captured from Sweatcoin app.
I say not bad to be among the top 25% of all users considering there are millions of users. That is if the number of people who downloaded this app is the same number of users, then that's exceptional.
That was how much steps I made last year and that is solely based on when the app is on. I may have made more than that though.
2, 108, 415 steps covering 998.3 miles, that would give me 2,112 steps per walk/jog. I am not consistent in the number of steps that I do but I wanted to make sure that I get to 5,000 at least. I don't go for a walk every day for most of the times I only go out on the weekends or when days that I have time.
I posted in noise the number of calories I burned last year. As I said there, I put in more calories that I have burned though.
Most of the Sweatcoins I earned from this app was donated to the charities that one can find in the app. There is no way for me to withdraw the coins I earned there so why not donate it instead. Also, I use the app just to measure my steps. The coins are just secondary.
Where do I go for a walk? It's just around the city taking the road sides. I mostly go to where there are a few cars though and where I get to see a lovely view which I have been sharing here and will be sharing more.
What's next? For this year, I hope I can be more consistent in walking or exercising and hopefully to surpass these numbers by the end of the year.
Walking is one of the easiest exercises to do. You don't need an equipment. You don't have to dress for it, just wear comfortable shoes and clothing and that's it. You can do it at your own pace. No pressure. What's more, you get to see things and maybe take photos of something you can share here.
So go out and start walking!
