My first day with FitBit

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Wow! Can you say user friendly?! It was so simple to get going, I couldn't believe it. Plus, I totally love that it tracks for me! I've started this overnight cleaning job, which translates to about 7 hours of cleaning/walking time. I'd been trying (not too hard, though) to figure out how to track this exercise. Enter FitBit. It tracks more calories burned for me than SparkPeople, but I'm sticking with my SparkPeople calories burned. By the way, thank you SparkPeople for linking with FitBit! You have helped simplify my life!!! Although I don't know the formula used to calculate, I ended up with cardio minutes and certainly my 10K step goal before the day is through. I was a befuddled when it reset itself at midnight (who else noticed?) I didn't realize that was why for a few minutes-why did my numbers reset when there's no reset button like with a pedometer? But I figured it out (cuz that's what I do!)
That's all for now, since its nearly my bedtime. I just wanted to say my FitBit Zip is awesome, and exceeded my expectations emoticon

    I love my fitbit too -- super motivatign to try and get to that magic 10k number everyday, even on days where it's a bit of a stretch to get it all in, it motivates me to just do it.

    I love my fitbit but since I decided to do 45 mins to an hour of exercise a day I decided that I won't rely on that ony to account for those minutes. I still get on my bike and my elliptical to get in my hour and then those are bonus exercise minutes for me. I work in a busy dept of a hospital so I usually get in about 7000 to 8000 steps there but still want to get in my other cardio. I love the fitbit because it keeps me accountable for steps and when I am not moving around enough! Glad you are liking yours. emoticon emoticon
