    Not doing anymore challenges until Apple gives me what I earned.

    D664A3CD-0F7D-4588-BE66-F11FECBF2E38.png Hopefully you all survived the November Challenge! I enjoyed sharing our progress last month, so I figured I’ll start one for December for anyone who’s also interested in sharing. My December Challenge is 53 workouts of 15 minutes or more, what’s yours?!

    Good lord! That's every day and then some!

    My December challenge is 25 move goals. I rarely get there on the weekends, so here's another challenge I won't meet. Oh well. :(

    53 workouts of 15 minutes. Pretty easy to manipulate.

    Apple must think I’m a slug: my challenge is to meet my stand goal 10x. I meet that nearly every day, usually by 6 pm.

    Is anyone else with a Series 4 finding that it awards many more active calories than earlier versions (in my case, Series 0)? I’m easily getting 40-50% more per day. Better accelerometer?

    Mine is sort of dumb. It’s close all my rings every day - so basically have a perfect month which I would do anyway. I’ve closed all my rings every day all year.

    I’ve gotten that one before as well. It’s seems like Apple takes a stat of either Total calories, Total workout minutes, Amount of 15-minute workouts, Average calories per-day, Average workout minutes per-day, or Hit a certain ring and then increases it for the next month. If we close all of our rings every day, then it can’t increase lol. Easy challenge.

    Have any idea if that's 31,000 Calories total, (resting and active), or just burn 31,000 ACTIVE calories? BIG difference!

    Exactly, my avg calorie burn for November was 978 calories. So Apple figured I can beat it in December... :confused:

    1,000 per day is definitely doable! The hard part will be finding time around the holidays and fighting the weather.

    Problem is I’ll be driving for 3 days which will make it more difficult. Better bank my calories. ;)

    Pending no severe cold snaps, hopefully I can accomplish this running or cycling!

    Looks like we all have somewhat tough challenges, but doable ones.

    Mine is to complete 6 workouts of 15 minutes or more. I don’t generally start workouts but the auto start thing means I did three or four one day last month so a couple of days out and about could do it.

    Easy as it is though, it is a challenge as I’m driving to work at the moment so walking a lot less than usual.

    Mine is to get 121.8 miles for the month. Should be doable even though I am not a runner.
