My new friend Fitbit

Monday, December 31, 2012

So I got a fitbit yesterday with Christmas/Hanukkah money. So far I am in love with this little gadget. Yesterday it was kinda scewy cuz it was my first day and I started with it at 3 pm. You wear it to sleep in a little arm band which u don't notice. It can tell when u went to sleep how many times u woke up in the night. How long it took you to fall asleep. How efficient your sleep was. Pretty darn cool. Basically it's high tech Pedometer, it just clips on your clothes. I can always use motivation. It also somehow tracks how many calories u burned in your sleep, which was 400 some last night. So it counts steps, counts floors, counts calories based on your steps and weight and height. The woman I know who has one said it somehow figures out her running. From waking up and going to work and coming home and shoveling. I walked 3.6 miles today. Burned 1659 calories including my sleep. This thing is darn cool! I am still logging all my calories on spark usual. Not quite sure what I will do with myfitnesspal, I have it linked to my fitnesspal but not spark. But you can if you want to. Anyway I thought I would share my exitment to move.

Have an awesome New years you guys!!!!

    Sounds so cool! You've got me more excited for these 8 days to be over in my assessment phase of my ActiveLink to be able to see all the stuff I earn on a regular basis! :)

I do wish mine had the sleep feature though-- that's a really cool thing to know.
