but, I did. I did not want to exercise today. I had myself so set for riding JC that it wasn't in my plan. Alas, it is only 16 degrees here so it is a bit cold to put a bit in the horse's mouth not to mention not really good for their lungs. I made myself do 40 minutes on the treadmill and an additional 40 minutes of Walk It Out.
I discovered an interesting fact yesterday. It says that 2,000 steps is a mile. I find that very interesting because all of my pedometers and my fitbit say I don't get to a mile until I do 2500 steps. I think these little gizmos are discriminating against short people. I don't get it. No wonder my little gizmos tell me that I only did 3 mileswhen Leslie Sansone says, "You just did 4 miles," . How do I lose a mile? The rest of the world doesn't lose a mile hmmmm
I am now ready to review the Fitbit One. I can definitely say I like it much better than I did the Ultra. First of all, it just feels sturdier. Also, I think it tracks steps better and I do like the little rubber case it comes with. The Ultra had the worst little plastic clip. I never used it. I have also decided I really like the Fitbit site. I have fun challenging my fellow Sparkers. They keep me motivated to keep walking. I also like that my scale goes straight to the site so I always know what my body fat is. I have the Fitbit Aria scale and I love it. It doesn't jump all over the place. The other thing I like about the site is it tells you your calories burned to eaten ratio and whether you have fallen above or below where you are supposed to be. Whatever you track on Spark automatically syncs to Fitbit. In a nutshell, I would definitely recommend the One and the Fitbit site.
