Since I’ve already accomplished this and more by using the excellent Fitbit API and the script written by John McLaughlin aka @loghound for Google docs. Ernesto Ramirez also made an how to video on Vimeo which easily explained the process, so that even I could do it!
The results can be found in this google spreadsheet (It may take a while to download, it’s rather big.
In my case the answer is 8,867,720 steps or 7,161Km (4,449 miles) which took 1,226.982 Kcals of energy (more or less I did lose just over 1kg in weight through the year). My weight chart is here
Time wise I spent:-
- 32% in bed, asleep for 30% + 2100 awakenings 🙁
- 36% sedentary
- 14% lightly active
- 7% very active

So an interesting year for me.
