Comical Fitbit Thoughts

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

So here I am in, like, the 4th day of using this cool new Fitbit. And I caught myself with some thoughts that, if left unattended, could be absurd and ridiculous.

1. I forgot to put my Fitbit on, so there's no sense walking since it won't count.

2. Oh, my! Look at all the steps I did today and, since I burned so many calories, I can eat more.

3. I won't get competitive with myself with this Fitbit. If that's the case, why am I unhappy with today's numbers as opposed to yesterday's.

4. I won't get "addicted" to this little tool. So why do I make sure I have it on at all times and check it out a couple times a day?

It seems that the things that I resist the most - like when I first joined SP and didn't want to buy a Fitbit - are the very things I wind up using the most and being the most beneficial.

Wishing all a good evening.

    I think it would be cool if the Fitbit numbers were automatically posted in the Friend Feed, or at least if there was a way to press a button and post them.

    You are funny!
I think I would get so addicted to it to and always try to outdo myself the next day but that only goes so far, and you can't outdo mega steps at some point!

    Great Blog. I'm so addicted to my fitbit that I've taken to wearing a sports bra to bed (the wrist strap is uncomfortable for me) so I won't miss a step if I get up during the night!

I would not say I'm a competitive person but I must check the challenge board 10 times a day to make sure I'm keeping up. The board has certainly encouraged me to get more steps!

    I love mine too. I have the One with the sleep tracker. I use mine 24 hours a day.
It tells me how long it took to fall asleep, how many times I awoke, or not, and just how long I slept. Too cool! emoticon emoticon
