I am so happy with the fitbit one in conjunction with my daily workout. I am definitely not in good shape so when I blog I am just happy with the exercise I am able to do. The fitbit sends little messages as prompts to get moving if I have been static for too long. It isn't like a coach yelling to get moving, but more a reminder of where I am at in today's regime. A routine I set daily for myself. It just sent me a messages "smooches Ralph". Nothing negative about that. The goal is to walk 10,000 steps a day. Not going to happen just yet, but I got an email congratulating me for walking 5017 steps the other day. Most days I also try to exercise in a pool. I strap weights on my ankles and high step 30-90 minutes. Constant motion w/o any leg pain. Of course the fitbit cant be part of any water activity. I log this in separately on spark. To log the fitbit, I just push sync on the Spark fitness page and it transfers the information to that page.
I like the fact this fitbit one has a wristband to attach the fitbit while I sleep. It monitors my sleep. Just reset it when you get up. I know how long I slept, but more importantly how fit was my sleep.
I am very encouraged by the passive assist I get from this device. Now my bigger mountain to conquer is to eat healthier. I have a food scale but need to get it out of the box. I think they work better then. lol I really think I can do it this time!
I'm new have a fitbit one, while lookig on the fitbit site I see you can log in what you are doing for various house aciivities .does anyone keep track of that, it would be a lot of time tracking the excercie activities would be easy by are you supose to use a stopwatch to keep track of the each housework activity 1241 days ago
I am new to SP. I ordered the FitBit One last week and have been stalking the mailman waiting for it to arrive. I am glad to hear all the great things you have said about it. Thanks for sharing the information. Best of luck to you. 1260 days ago
I've had my Fitbit One for 2 days and I absolutely love it!! It's motivated me to get off my backside and get active. I deliberately walk further or change my route , get up more etc just to get those steps up. It's also motivating to compete against friends! 1267 days ago
Oh, Now I really want to get a FitBit. I don't think I move enough to need one, but I bet it would work to motivate me. I equate my exercise style as similiar to a huge house plant - But I am working to improve that..
I wish you Strength in this New Year, to stick to the Healthy path!
Now more than ever I'm wanting a Fitbit also. From you and everyone else who has one they seem to love the fact that it encourages them to move more, just what I need. Yes, I agree the food scale will work better out of the box--LOL! Eating healthy is equally important in correct portion sizes. It sure would be interesting to be able to track how much I really sleep at night, what an incredible device.
