Fitbit day 3

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Well, I have one thing to say:

Fitbit has woken me up to a very scary thought. I'm sedentary way more than I thought I was.

Granted, Monday's dance practice was cancelled, and that would have been an hour and a half to 2 hours of dancing and so that didn't happen.

But otherwise? I was shocked, literally shocked to see that over the last 2.5 days, I've been what the Fitbit considers sedentery for 96% of the time.

HOLY. EFFING. COW.

That includes doing a minimum of 30 min of zumba in the a.m., adding a walk in yesterday etc. Now, the rest of my week - if it goes as scheduled, will have at least an hour of dance a night, if not 2-3 hours of dance. But....that doesn't change reality.

I'm much, much too sedentary.

First thing I'm changing? I sit at a computer all day every day. Every 30 minutes, I'm going to start getting up and walking a lap around our floor.

It's a start.

Do I like fitbit? Yes! I'm still new and still catching on, but I like it. It's REALLY motivating me to get off my butt, which I think we can all agree on, is probably the most important thing I could do.

I have other news to share, but no time today. My insurance company is setting me up with a health coach because of my multiple risk factors. That should be interesting.....

Hopefully I'll catch up to posting soon.

    I love my fitbit! It keeps me moving. I can see when I am having a sedentary day and I get off my butt!

Happy you and Jodie both have a fitbit......Have you joined the fitbit challenge page? Watching my steps add up there keeps me moving too.

    Glad you are liking the fitbit. It really has been eye opening to me as well. It truly has helped me stay focused on being more active too. I have added a second workout most days to get to my goals for the day. What I like too is on the days I know I am going to be sitting more than I know to tone down my eating . Love this little gadget too.

    I've been thinking about spending the money on a Fitbit but have hesitated. Sounds like it is helpful. emoticon

    It is eye-opening, isn't it?!
Good for you for attempting to find periods throughout the day to get up and move! That will definitely add steps to your total.

    Awesome!! I'm now a little scared to face the Fitbit, too. But, it's better to know that to feel like you're being active and wonder why the scale isn't moving. Continued good luck!!
