My new Jawbone UP records my daily movement, whether physical or REM. Each day I am increasingly interested in my daily step log. One morning I sported heels as I completed our daily routine. By the time I slid into the car for my morning commute, my feet ached and moaned, clearly not used to a heel-laden marathon. Upon arriving at school, I uploaded my bracelet data. 3047 steps. That is nearly a third of my daily recommended amount. Sweet! So repeatedly running up and down stairs, making breakfast, and throwing the ball for the dog gives me a parental workout.
What did I learn? Our 40 minute morning routine is a mad dash.
