If you have been following my blog for a few months now, you will remember that in September, I purchased the Nike Fuel Band SE and reviewed my first few days with my fitness monitor (click here to read it). I have had my Nike Fuelband SE for several months now and use it daily. I did some analysis of the energy I spend daily. The results were interesting, so I thought I would share my results.
Nike Fuel (NF)
As you can see in the graph above, Saturdays are by far my busiest day of the week, followed by Sunday and Monday. My slowest day of the week seems to be Tuesdays followed Wednesday. I set my goal to burn 3000 Nike Fuel units a day. On average, I burn 3300 Nike Fuel per day. On an average weekday, I burn close just slightly over 3000 NF, while on weekends it creeps closer to 4000 NF. So far, my lowest day has been 2053 NF, my busiest day was 5495.
Right now, Saturday’s are my run days, since I can only afford 1 day a week to go running, so it’s natural to see this day high in NF units burned. It is curious however to see that Tuesdays are my slowest days. When I can afford more time to go running, I will consider adding it on a Tuesday to get more active on that day.
So far I reached my goal of 3000 NF about 55% of the time. Not very good. I will have to work on that, however, I do think that for now a goal of 3000 NF a day is a good goal to reach.
An important note to start off with is that the calories counted with the Nike Fuel Band SE are those from physical activity alone, and it’s not inclusive of other calories your body burns by doing regular things like breathing, chewing, eating etc. My data for calories burned is consistent with the Nike Fuel burned, where I burn more calories on Saturdays with an average of 832 calories burned while Tuesdays is my least active day where I burn an average of 565 calories.
An hour with 5 minutes of physical activity is an hour won. My Nike Fuel Band will prompt me every hour to get up and move for 5 minutes (not that I can do it necessarily when I’m at work). Again, you can see that my graphs are pretty consistent with my most active day on Saturday and my least active day on Tuesdays.
Perhaps you don’t find this data all that fascinating, however I do since I would never have assessed that my slowest day of the week is Tuesday. I will have to try and change my Tuesday routine so that I can add more physical activity. Is Saturday your most active day? Doesn’t it make you wonder what your least active day of the week is? Leave me a comment about which are your most or least busiest days of the week!
