Let the steps begin

Saturday, June 15, 2013

My FitBit came and I used it on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. My first full day I had more than 15,000 steps and on Friday, more than 20,000. It helps that we walk our dogs three times a day. I walk with our four-year-old lab mix in the morning and we put a lot of time in. Both of us are a bit pudgy. DH and our Weimaraner come along for the afternoon and evening walks most of the time but they just walk as much as they can. Both are a bit limited at this time although sometimes the Weimaraner comes with me. It depends if he thinks he might get treats.

Today my FitBit had to be charged and I haven't thought about it since. I better get it together so, even if I just forgo today, I don't forget about it for tomorrow too.

    You are going to make us all get our running shoes on or you'll leave us in the dust!! Way to go and can't wait 'til you join the ASKer's group:)

    For the short amount of time I had mine I found I was walking around the yard just to get to the next hundreds or thousands. We are a strange breed. I just ordered my new scale and new fitbit-watch me find the missing one now.
Crazy lady found she will actually be entitled to widow's benefits from DH so I'm spending it before it gets here.
Enjoy your fitbit, I have to wait 5-7 weeks for my new one, what nonsense.
BTW: charge it while you shower or bathe or while you're watching TV, I think it only takes an hour or so.

    It's funny, yesterday, my day 2 with fitbit, I was approaching 20,000 and a part of me thought of walking around the house till it went over just to see it. It is motivating!

    I didn't know the flex needed to be charged. I hope that doesn't get to be a problem!

However, even with losing a day, you would have left us all in your dust this week!
