One Fitbit Week Equals 4 Badges
This Fitbit was the most fun b'day gift I got for myself. In the first week of use, I've earned 4 badges - just by doing what I normally do. It's fun and helpful in knowing what I'm doing and how it translates to miles and calories. I resiste... Read more
One Third of Americans...
...don't watch the Super Bowl game. If you do, enjoy! I enjoy empty freeways and a virtual ghost town to travel through with no crowds whatsoever since everyone else is watching the game.
Have a fun day.... Read more
Two Fitbit Missteps
Okay, two things that I've discovered about Fitbit:
-I thought it was reading the pedalling I was doing on the exercise bike, but last night I discovered that it's not. Disappointing since I do a lot of that.
-I noticed that the numbe... Read more
Fitbit Almost Went into The Wash
It's great that the Fitbit is so non-obtrusive, but the downside is that it's easy to forget it's there. I was falling asleep last night when I suddenly realized that I'd put my bra into the hamper to be washed today. I had to spring out of be... Read more
Comical Fitbit Thoughts
So here I am in, like, the 4th day of using this cool new Fitbit. And I caught myself with some thoughts that, if left unattended, could be absurd and ridiculous.
1. I forgot to put my Fitbit on, so there's no sense walking since it won't... Read more
"You've gotta try Nutella," she said.
I walked into my fave little grocery store (fresh and easy) to find strawberries on sale. My store friend (you know how you make friends by shopping regularly at a place) grabbed my arm and excitedly advised, "oooooh, you've just gotta try Nute... Read more
Enjoying the New Fitbit
Lest I mislead you with my last blog about being confused about my first day of Fitbit, let me clarify. As a non-tech person, it is VERY easy to set up. However, I just had a couple more "steps" to do in the set-up phase that I had missed. No... Read more
Confused after 1st Fitbit Day
What was disappointing was that, upon checking the Fitbit site and having used the dongle, only calories showed up. Not number of steps or miles. Why? I don't know. I was looking forward to a grand total.
It has already reset, so I can'... Read more
INITIAL FITBIT IMPRESSIONS
I received my new pink Fitbit Zip late yesterday afternoon. Easy to set up, I was surprised at how small it is, yet how much it can calculate! Even with the few hours I had it on in the house, it was amazing how many steps I took! Too bad it ... Read more
Changes During My Time w/ SP
I tracked my package and Fitbit is due to arrive today. So, if I can set it up tonight, I'll start using it tomorrow. Usually my mail arrives late afternoon.
Since this is my SP anniversary week, I've pondered what has changed over these ... Read more
Belt Caper Irony & Misc. Thoughts
Before 6 years ago, I had the luxury of never thinking about food and weight gain. I had years of collections of belts - all kinds, styles, etc. A belt diva. During this past 6 years, I gave them all away with other things to charity and figu... Read more
This Week Is The Official 4-Year Sparkversary
Can't believe it's been 4 years since accidentally stumbling upon this site! WOW!
(p.s. I just went to the page that allows you to add Spversary icons - they only go up to 3!)... Read more
Why I Caved & Ordered Fitbit
I don't jump on bandwagons, so I took my time and heavily weighed whether I'd really use the hefty-priced Fitbit. Honestly, I walk a lot. And I've always wondered what it translates to in miles and calories burned. I want to "step" it up, so ... Read more
DAILY WEIGHING-ANOTHER OPINION
I walked into the room during the very last few sentences of a radio interview with an author who just wrote a weight loss book. He said that he'd heard many warnings not to weigh daily as it is too frustrating. But he felt the opposite to be ... Read more
