Week 7: January Challenge Success!

I am a few weeks late with this post, but I am proud to say I successfully completed my January challenge of closing all the Activity Rings on my Apple Watch everyday throughout the month. It is also a point of pride that I completed the Apple January Challenge of accumulating 300 exercise minutes! So, one personal challenge and one Apple Challenge completed in the same month to start the year. It’s a great feeling to have achieved success so early in 2019.

Since the close of January, I have continued on at the same level (750 calories per day) without missing a day. This puts me on track for a second perfect month in a row. In addition to this potential challenge success, I have already achieved the Heart Month Challenge which consisted of closing my exercise ring for 7-days in a row from February 7th to February 14th. Also, I am on track to achieve the February Challenge of 113.9 miles in movement throughout the month.

Success appears to stack as quickly as you can set realistic goals.

My continuing goal (measured on a monthly basis) is to close all my Activity Rings at their current levels (750 calories) through July 15th. This will result in my longest streak for closing my Move Ring – my previous record was 191 days. Barring illness or crazy travel schedules, I should be able to accomplish this ambitious challenge.

Things aren’t looking so good for my February Challenge of completing the CAPM certification from PMI by the end of the month. More to come on that in my next post.
