Fitbit ramble

Thursday, September 05, 2013

I was a hold out on Fitbit. "Really who needs a $100 toy to make them want to move more?" I must eat those words. My fitbit world is three weeks old and the first week I just looked to see how many steps I was taking. The next week I added 2,000 steps to the average and thought okay lets see if you can do that. I did 5 out of the 7 days. So this week I set 6,000 steps a day or 42,000 for the week.

I am here to report it is the best $100 I have spent, besides my walking shoes. I find myself looking to see how many steps I have taken through out the day. One night I walked around the block, because I hadn't hit 6,000. How could I go to bed with less than 6,000 steps.

Now I am sure any pedometer would do, just put one on and challenge yourself. It is fun way to put in some exercise and not notice you are doing it.

36,918 steps so far this week.

Goal is 42,000 for the week
9/1 - 8111
9/2 - 6028
9/3 - 6234
9/4 - 9203
9/5 - 7342 (not done for the day
9/7 -
9/8 -

You have encouraged me to put on my pedometer and get moving and see how much I do in a day and to try to improve each week. Thanks for the pep talk!
