Setting a challenge for myself as I gear up to get back into shape - walking 10,000 steps every day from January 22 till the end of January.
I've had months where I've walked easy 10k+ average in the past. However, over the last 30 days, my daily average is around 3.5k steps only. Hoping that this week would set some good momentum if I complete 10k steps every day.
Tracking using a Garmin Forerunner 955 watch.
The market resolves NO immediately at the end of a day I fail to clear the 10,000 steps target.

This was a fun and important market. It was because of this market that i managed to do 10k steps every day for the last 10 days, even when i was busy or did not want to.
I'm gonna try using prediction markets to further the small goals i never get around to doing for motivation related reasons. This market sort of gave me an additional reason/motivation to pursue this challenge beyond the challenge in itself, not to mention to the social validation when people (even if strangers) are rooting for you, and you know about it because they're holding shares cheering you on. So you kind of feel a bit of responsibility to make sure you do the challenge when if it were just for myself, I'd not get that competitive vibe.
Here's the last pic for January. I will be making a bunch of markets for running, walking, and other small challenges in February.

January 29, mission completed
I figured i was being sloppy walking around in the last hr before midnight and barely making the cut. Sooner or later i was going to miss it with that approach, so i decided to step it up xD
January 25: 10,110 (i did walk ~100 steps after the photo was taken)
The reason I use my forerunner 955 for this market is that it doesn't allow for manual entries. You cannot manually override or add steps, it only counts the ones it has collected through its sensors
January 24- 10,024 steps :)
