Um.. free pedometers and free weight loss incentives?? Sign me up!

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Let me just say what a great time to be at work right now! We had this pedometer program for a while now and sometime last year I lost my pedometer. I was really bummed about it and in order to replace the pedometers you have to pay $40 which is just a lot of money. Just recently the people at work announced the new pedometer program and mentioned if you lost your pedometer that you can get a new one for FREE! emoticon emoticon emoticon
Not only that but they have put links for a company that pays you money incentives if you lose weight by a certain period which is pretty awesome. It is making me work harder to meet my goals and when I did have my workplace pedometer, it made me want to walk more so I'm pretty excited about that.

I know what I want for my birthday and if I don't receive it as I gift, I will most definitely get it for myself but I really want a Fitbit! I've been looking at them for a while now and seeing they are now partnered with Sparkpeople, I want it even more! emoticon

I am determined to do it this year since I'll be turning 25. I only have four more years of enjoying my 20's so I need to bust some butt!! I really, really, REALLY hope there is a new weight loss challenge at my gym in January because then I will be able to get my group fitness classes cheap!

What has motivated you recently? Let me know! I'd love to hear it!!

Have a wonderful day!

Lots of love!

    My employer offers discounts to those who participate in a walking challenge, when you sign up for the program you can request a pedometer - and it's not a cheapy one either, it's an Omron. I got one a couple years ago and it's still going strong, but I think I'll get a new one this year just in case the old one goes ka-put!

    I haven't decided what to do about the Fitbit yet. I'm a gadget girl and that side of me says GET ONE! But the practical side of me syncing your activity really worth the $$. Adding it myself isn't that hard! LOL

    Can't wait to see what you decide. Keep us posted!

    Great to hear! I love that your company is encouraging employees to be healthy! Mine does too.

    There is a new fitbit coming out later this month that you can sync with your phone, and you don't have to have it plugged into your computer. I can't wait for that one to come out. I'm an avid fitbit user, and am really looking forward to the new one!

    Have a great day!
