My FitBit is cheating!

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Well, it feels that way because I am getting lots of lots of exercise minutes and miles for things like 10min walk to bus stop, walk to french class etc.!

It does seem a bit unfair to get minutes for those things, whereas before I wouldn't have entered any fitness minutes unless I did at least 45 minutes or 3 miles.

On the plus side, it really does motivate you to get up a move more, get off the bus one stop earlier etc. and I like seeing my Sparkpeople points and trophies.

I haven't actually gotten to 10,000 steps in a day yet, but that is my goal for the week.

    I love the Fitbit. It doesn't let you cheat, but counts every step you take. You are right, it inspires you to get moving just a little more. I also get messages to tell me I only have 1300 steps or so to reach my goal fort he day. Only one day I haven't reached 10000, but offset that with a core strength training workout so I am not upset about the missing 1400 steps.

It is a great inspiration!

    Sounds like a great idea to me.

    I keep seeing people talking about Fit Bits...do you like yours? I'm wondering if this is something I should be adding to my wish list for Christmas!
