I have a love/hate relationship with my FitBit. The love doesnít go very deep, mostly because it is only the inanimate object of my desire. Actually, I loathe my FitBit when I think about it.
My good news is (s)he/it told me today that I walked 4,000 flights of stairs since I activated my first one on October 23, 2012. Iím already on my second FitBit because the first one started being intermittent and then stopped working altogether after six months.
What this all means is I chose the stairs more often than the elevator, but I'm hyper-aware this thing forces me to wear it on my person, and sync it up with my account, and everything else that just seems like bondage. It hasnít recorded EVERY flight of stairs but some of that is my fault; I did misplace it several times and then the first one was failing.
Well, only a few more steps and Iíll have walked 2,000,000 steps. Yeah, it didnít record all of the steps I actually walked either, but Iím good with that, too. I'm better off because of it.
