I just got a toy!
Saturday, February 02, 2013
My husband just started his new job, and for the first time in more than 10 years, he works for a BIG company. He's been startup man for a long time, and got a really cool opportunity to work for a giant, but to start his own team that is completely self directed. It is sort of like being a tiny little startup inside an enormous company.
He's very excited, because the programming problem he is working on is really exciting. I'm very excited because the company bought him a bunch of new toys to try to integrate into the program he is writing. So..... we got a fitbit!
I really know next to nothing about this thing, and I think it underestimated (by a lot) the number of calories I burned in my workout, but it is a tool. If it helps to keep me motivated, I don't care how accurate the numbers are.
So sparkfriends - do any of you use this toy? I'm interested in advice here. I'm excited to learn about it, but all I've done so far is gotten it to sync with both sparkpeople and my fitbit account. That was pretty fun, and my flower is growing!!
Hope all is well with everyone, I'll be in touch with a fitbit report in a couple of days!
