Double dipping with Fitbit & Spark People!

Thursday, September 05, 2013

Guess it has been awhile since I posted a blog!
I purchased a Fitbit in June and my walking has increased by leaps and bounds. The first day I put it on I pretended it wasn't there and averaged only 3,500 steps. I thought I walked more than that. Now I strive for 10,000 each day (which I have only achieved four times). My daily average is about 7,000 every day so I figure this little device has doubled my daily walking. It is a great little device that attaches securely and discreetly to your bra ( I wear mine right between the girls). Whenever I get on my laptop it syncs to the Fitbit site to keep track of my daily, weekly & monthly steps. There is some friendly competition among friends and now I have it set up with Spark People and it syncs whenever I log in each day. Man Am I getting the fitness minutes and points now!
I would highly recommend this little device. It is available on Amazon for about $50.
Today I got to my carpool a half hour early and put in 2,000 steps by walking around the parking lot before the crew got there. emoticon

    I am loving my SP Activity tracker, too. I can wear it in the pool--on my shoe. It has motivated me to go out and walk --on occasion and definitely gives me an extra push to get to the pool. chris

    Congrats on your increased walking.
Sounds as if the Fitbit is just the right gadget to make that happen.

I wish you a great school year ahead... with those lucky youngsters who have you for their teacher.

    I love my FitBit (which I wear in the same place you wear yours) . . . my daily average is around 7,000 steps as well, unless I walk the dogs. I've gotten as many as 20,000 steps in a day, but that's very rare.

    Thanks for the info. I keep hearing the good and the not so on the Fitbit but maybe the investment is something I should consider.

    I've had one since January and it really, really helps. Just synched it for food too so it projects calories can have for food.
If I am at work, I am in 7000 range and then if I workout after I can do 10,000. Trying to do that more regularly.
