Just came in from shooting off some fireworks and had to check what I’m up against. I think this is doable. I’ve been in the 700-900 range lately, and worked to keep it there so I could flip some of my trends.

This one will challenge me but is definitely doable. I have a couple of basketball tournaments to referee this month so that will be a huge help really. I’m going for it!!

Mine is challenging, but doable: 43,700 calories. It’s basically what I did in December, a bit more than November, and less than October.

I missed my Dec goal on purpose... so Apple gave me an even tougher one for January LOL. Will miss everything till April and see if they come to their senses.
Three months — that's about how long it took for mine to become more reasonable.

I'm actually embarrassed to post mine - close my Exercise Ring four times.

That's it.

I stopped bothering trying to close my Exercise Ring last year after I was hospitalized for a week for a pulmonary embolism, instead just focusing on my Move Ring (1000 calories per day) and Stand Rings. So while I do trigger my Exercise ring on some of my longer walks, I don't really bother closing it so my average for the last quarter of 2019 was four days a month so that is my January goal.

Since I have to close it seven days in a row for the New Years Challenge, suffice to say it will be done by Tuesday. :p

LOL! I believe I have you beat! I only have to close my exercise ring 1 time!! That's right I said 1 time! :)

It’s dropped a bit from the last total calorie goal at about 610 a day.
Millerj123, which iOS version are you using? My Activity app has this exact same glitch where the badge artwork won't appear even though a goal is visible, which is worrying.

Specifically, I am worried that Apple didn't code the appearances of the 2020 badges into iOS 12 (which I still use for jailbreak reasons), so... no more shiny monthly badges?? If so, this is a dick move towards iPhone 6 and 5S users, or people who uses iOS 12/WatchOS 5 for stability reasons.

Double the Move Goal 16 times. Move is currently set to 600, and I already doubled it on Jan 1. Now that I no longer have school to worry about, this should be quite easy baring any sickness.

I think Apple may be trying to kill you... Did you kick Tim Cook's dog or something? :p

Double move goal(800) 19 times. 1,600 isn't that difficult for me.

December I missed a bunch of gym days because of the holidays, so I get a manageable one.

6290 minutes.
Wow. I'm with HengenJL. I think Apple is trying to take you out.

I was able to hit 2,088 calories yesterday, so my per-day quota is now down to 1,387 instead of 1,410. I have a heavy training month scheduled so it shouldn't be a problem.

But with all that, I only had 142 minutes of exercise (105 running, 21 rowing, 16 misc). 210 per day is a lot.
