My cutesy motto: Walking is to my overall fitness program what compost is to my garden. Resistance training is to the program what a bit of fertilizer is to the blossoming plants.

Love the analogy!
Today's tally for me 4.75 miles and 75 min of sustained activity, including a walk and line dancing. Plus 10 minutes of stretching. I find at least 30 minutes more of restful sleep when really active over an hour compared to my lazier days. Trying to get to an average of 5 1/2 hours of good sleep out of my nightly 8 hours in bed, but my eyes often pop open at 6 or 6:30 am, and it's useless to lay there.
I use a Fitbit sent to sensitive to measure my sleep. On Mondays afterman active week (4 or more days over 30 minutes) my oxygen sats measure at least 2-3% better than lazy weeks.
Now I'm looking for a more flexible device because it only registers intervals of 10 min or longer. On bad days, I may only be able to mange 5-7 minutes moving before I need to pause, and if the pause is more than a minute the counter starts over.
What method do you all use to track activity or sleep?
