Hi, thank you so much for your response on the message board to my post about glandular fever! Your advice is spot on quite a few levels. I checked out the overtraining link and I could have definitely overdone it. I also had a rest from exercise (about a week or more) and then started back up again and so far I haven't experienced the crash and burn feeling I was getting last month. I think it is a combination of a stronger immune system through diet and exercise as well being aware that I need to rest at least 2 days / week. You have been so helpful, and I appreciate the time you took to respond in such details - thanks! emoticon

Stick with the fitbit. I woulda been happy to pay a little more for the spark tracker...if it could be more accurate.

Even still, I will probably keep it. I like the sparkly lights.

Thanks for stopping by my blog about the FitBit. Yeah - I know that now it is counting my steps better. When I do step aerobics - my movements are more defined (violent was the term that came to mind - but that isn't exactly what I mean). When I do step aerobics - you hear my feet stomp on the step and stomp on the floor - there is more of a defined movement.

When I was originally stepping from side to side - it was more of a fluid motion. I was picking up my feet (not dragging them) and it actually hurt (in a good way) to do many - but I just don't think the movement was as pronounced.

Now - I am making movements as though I have an imaginary step in front of me. Even when stepping side to side - I feel the move. I have noticed that the difference especially between these 2 moves is not only that the FitBit counts better - but I also get more winded by the newer way. I guess it takes more work to move that way - which is an added benefit.

I still love my FitBit - and glad I didn't give up before testing it out. Actually - I think I love it even more because I am not only making my 10,000 steps - but I think these type of steps are more aerobic than before.

Thanks, Sumay
