My BFF was saying she felt silly doing extra little things to get more steps since she got her Fitbit. I assured her she wasn't alone; my husband and I do, and most SPAT/Fitbit owners I know do. I march around the kitchen island or jump on the elliptical the last few minutes before midnight to get in as many as possible or cross 10000. She said a friend's husband walks around the bedroom before bed if he hasn't hit 10000.
She lamented that her Fitbit had glitches on Sunday, and she missed about 6500 steps going to the farmers market. My husband missed out on a shopping trip because he'd been pushing the shopping cart, and none of his steps registered. (Another reason I'm glad I have the SPAT: I can put it on my foot.) I am still twitchy because I lost the first hour or two I had the tracker due to a glitch. I can't imagine losing as many as they did.
She then talked about hoping the motivation lasts. I told her I plan to continue increasing my goal as I become consistent. I also try to hit more and more miles each month. I'm a reward-chart-type of person, a child at heart.
What keeps up your motivation?
