At least this is so if you like me are no longer young.
Round number goals seem to me to be a bit pointless. I like the idea of setting personal goals based on one's health, eating habits, age, and current fitness level.

It's always a good idea to ramp up any new goals over a decent length of time. Maybe no more the 10% increase per week or so.

We're having a week of over 90 degree weather and I'm finding the Fitbit useful in planning my activity. I get out before 8 in the morning and do between 7,000 to 8,000 steps, as quickly as I can walk. Then after my everyday activity I usually have about 2,000 left to meet my 12,500 step goal - when it cools off enough in the evening I go out again. I wander around in the neighborhood, enjoy all the sprinklers until I feel it vibrate, then head home.

I had to laugh yesterday, I did a moderately active yoga class and the Flex seems to have thought that I was sleeping!
