300 days. Three hundred!

Almost two years ago I set a goal to do 3.5 million steps in half a year. That was Michael's full year. After reaching the 3.5 million steps, I set the full year goal to seven. And I expanded it to not only do 10k steps a day at a minimum but also at least 100 km a week. After completing a full year on this program, I had reached 6200 km in a single year.

Last May I switched on another regime: 600 calories Move per day, 30 mins exercise, 12 hours standing. What the Apple Watch ordered. Today is day number 300 on this program. 300 days without breaking this chain. The Actitity award presented for a 300 days Move streak is only one third of the story. I also never missed any of the other two goals.

300 days without failing once. Hah! 9½ Weeks to 365. ;-)

Way to go! :)

Gratulation, Volker. Respekt!

Wahnsinn. Großer Respekt für diese Disziplin. Da darf man wirklich stolz sein.
Wenn mich mal eine Erkältung oder Virus im Griff hat, dann frage ich mich, wie Du diese Ziele an jedem einzelnen Tag schaffst. Komme was wolle. Respekt.

Genau das habe ich gerade. Lebensgefährlicher Männerschnupfen. :-) Dann ist es schwieriger. Und ich hatte noch ernstere Sachen, die ich gar nicht erzählen will.

Je länger der Streak ist, desto größer die Motivation, nicht abreissen zu lassen.

Stimme voll und ganz zu - habe selbst soeben 360 Tage Bewegung geschafft. Nächstes Ziel - 444! Und keine Erkältung - bis Samstag :-( Habe ich allerdings auf einer Messe eingefangen, da ist das ja fast normal nach 4 Tagen. Auch mit Rotznase - an die Luft hilft, macht angenehm müde für den folgenden Gesundheitsschlaf :-)

Well done, sir!

Right behind you. 116 days Daily Move Streak..

Good job. 8 weeks behind you - the watch started later in Sweden. :-) BTW, one thing I forgot to ask you: How does the Activity app and the goals react to timezone changes making the day "longer or shorter"?

Federico Hernandez, 2016-03-24 09:18

Yes, they make the day longer (going west) and shorter (going east). This helps me reaching my goals on long flights. I am not losing daylight when going east, and I am flying back in the night.

Volker Weber, 2016-03-24 09:33

I just killed my winning streak by traveling: accomplished my daily goal in the evening of day 1 - then flight to east with 7 hours difference. Day 1 was only shown with about half of the goal reached but the winning streak button was given as I finished all goals. On day 2 I accomplished my goals but then the surprise a day later: the calories of day 1 in the evening where shown on day 2 but counted on day 1. Stupid enough on day 2 the calories of the evening were added in the actual overview. Therefore the goal on day 2 was missed by about 20 - but this is shown only one day later :(

Ouch. That's gotta hurt.

Volker Weber, 2016-03-27 22:56

Volker - it does. Pass auf, weil dich das System ins Messer laufen lässt. Du glaubst am zweiten Tag, dass das Ziel erfüllt ist, aber das stimmt leider nicht - und ich habe mich noch gewundert, warum die Meldung, dass das Tagesziel erreicht wurde nicht kommt, obwohl das Ziel laut Anzeige erfüllt wurde.

Bernd Schuster, 2016-03-28 03:52

Das hat die Uhr mit mir auch schon mal versucht. Bin einfach weitergelaufen. Es zählt übrigens nur, was auf dem iPhone passiert.
