I bought a fitbit so I could track/log my activity automatically. And there was no monthly subscription to buy. I had been using a Bodybugg but I resented having to pay the monthly fee and it wasn't linked to Spark People.
Another reason I bought the fitbit was to track/log my sleep. My doctor recommended that I get at least 7 hours of sleep each night. I thought I was getting that much sleep. After a few days of using my fitbit, I realized I was actually getting closer to 6 hours per night. And not the best quality sleep, either.
I love my fitbit! Since getting it I am more motivated to move--I get up and walk about throughout the day rather than sit at my classroom table. I also have been working on the sleep. Last night I got almost 7.5 hours! Being sleep deprived is not fun. I'm feeling so much better!
And now it is time for fitbit and I to go and practice the cardio dance routine that I'm teaching tonight at an area senior center.
Do you have a fitbit or other tracking gadget? How has it helped you on your quest for better health/fitness? Leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you!
