Step Wars: Chicago vs. Cleveland
My Fitbit goes crazy when I visit Chicago. In September I remember texting a picture to Jay at 11am of my Fitbit reading over 11,000 steps already that day!
So, I was curious as to how it would be when we went to visit 2 weekends ago since there was a huge snow storm and we were taking public transportation everywhere (opposed to walking).
And it was still a HUGE difference.
Sunday we went for a 3 mile or so run/walk along the water, watched House of Cards, and then went out to dinner and for drinks. Nothing too active.
Monday all we did was watch more House of Cards, go to an early dinner, and then to the JT concert (it was a very chill weekend).
At home, my normal daily average is so much less than that!
Ha, and that included my Crossfit workout.
It’s a struggle for me to get 10,000 steps a day in Cleveland! But, in Chicago I have no trouble, even with a brutal snow storm. It’s no surprise my sis can eat out frequently and drink and still look amazing without working out. She’s walking miles upon miles every day!
Lakewood is definitely the most walkable “suburb” of Cleveland, but what can you do in the winter. I’ll be curious if these numbers will change come summertime!
Do you live in a walkable city? I love that we can walk to the grocery store, the park, dinner, school, ice cream .
