Dang Fitbit!!!

Thursday, February 07, 2013

It's making me ACTIVE!

Instead of sending my son to walk to school by himself or drive him in the rain.....I bundle up the little ones and we walk him to school

Instead of having my kids take the folded laundry upstairs...I walk them up one stack at a time.

Instead of sitting on my behind for a full hour show...I spend a portion of it on my feet walking in place

Instead of zoning out and being lazy...I set my timer for 5 minutes and walk up and down the stairs

Instead of listening to my kids sing and play to their music...I dance along

Instead of sitting down while I fold laundry...I do it standing up and try to move my feet

It's amazing how making those simple changes can bring about other changes! I've lost 10.8 lbs since getting my Fitbit on January 18th

A quote, from Biggest Loser, that I'm using as my mantra..."If you're not moving you're NOT losing"

Get out there and MOVE!

    I finally convinced my mom to go get one and now she's got me beat on daily steps. It may be time to up my steps again!

    I just got a FitBit too a couple weeks ago, and I have increased my daily steps almost by triple in little ways. Just tonight going to Costco was 1500 steps!! I was so sedentary before. But things are getting better! I like all the ways you moved more. It's amazing how good at conserving energy (lazy?) we can become if we don't keep an eye on ourselves.

    What an inspiring blog. I also love my Fitbit. I wear it everyday, I have not taken on the challenge in quite the way you have though and I see that there is much room for me to improve. Way to go on your weightloss and keep up the great work, Both of you! emoticon

    Totally agree, I find myself walking around my classroom to rack up minutes. Gosh-it's even made me a more effective teacher!

    It was worth EVERY penny, wasn't it? I love mine. I am constantly looking at it to check where I am with my steps. Having a desk job makes it hard to reach those 10,000 steps so I too have taken stairs, parked further away, paced or walked when I am waiting for something, and I watch tv while I'm on my treadmill in the morning.

I'm finding that I get a lot more done too, when I'm looking for opportunities to get up and move more. Keep up the good work!
