What My FitBit Says About Me
Monday, January 07, 2013
I splurged on myself and received a FitBit One right before Christmas. Cute little gadget, but I wasn't as impressed as I thought I'd be. Didn't wear it for a week because I've been traveling and also laying around with a sinus infection. I had decided to send it back. I can get lots of apps on my new phone that will do almost all the same things. But, I have to start whatever app I want to use, whereas the FitBit records automatically.
I guess I have to face the truth that FitBit tells me that I am not very active. Today is the first time my activity score has been over 50%. I was not impressed that it said I was very active for 12 minutes when I had done 45 minutes of an Insanity workout. huh? Another revealing fact comes from my sleep record - only last night I was awakened 23 times. Besides getting well, I don't really know how to improve my sleeping quality.
I consider myself a busy person, but so much of that work is done in a seated position - on the computer, at the sewing machine, or beneath a quilting hoop. I am planning to approach my chores the same way LuckyDogFarm does - like it is a job, but I've got to get well first. I'm still not sure that will amp up my activity level enough. This is a work in progress.
I wanted a FitBit for the extra motivation to move more - it has done that without a doubt.
