First day of my holidays!

Friday, April 27, 2012

First day of my holidays and I'm looking out the window at SNOW! Not impressed. The rain that we were getting yesterday turned to snow over night. It's still snowing, but it's very wet snow.

I'm enjoying the freedom of having a FitBit. I still catch myself starting to mentally count steps, but it's going to take awhile before I don't automatically do that. I am not sure just how accurate the FitBit is, it seems to count more steps than I sometimes think it should, and sometimes less than what I had manually counted. Oh well, I guess it all averages out. I like the fact that it tracks how many stairs I've climbed, converts my steps to miles(or kms), tells me how many calories I've burned and acts as a stopwatch for activities. I'm sure there is more that it will do which I will find out over time.
I don't agree with it's accuracy of monitoring my sleep, but that's because it always tells me that I've fallen asleep within 5 to 7 minutes after laying down....perhaps it's because I am usually so still. I do like the fact that it tells me how many times I've woken up during the night and whether or not I've been active at those times. Interesting little gadget.
I love the website that you download your info from the FitBit to. It's well laid out and as I can track my food etc on it, it makes it convenient. (No, I'm not leaving Spark...it has it's huge benefits too)

My positives:

I got to sleep in to 7 am this morning.
I don't have to go out into the miserable weather we are having.
I'm on holidays!
I got in some great steps yesterday and hope to do the same again today, even if at home.
I will have time to catch up on paying bills and such that I didn't do on Wednesday.
I'm blessed in so many ways, right from waking up this morning to having time for me.

Have a great day,
