The Fitbit - is it accurate? I believe it may come close to what steps you take. I guess you have to define "accurate". I know it is supposed to give you a count on stairs that you climb.. I have not quite figured out how many steps there have to be to get a reading of "stairs climbed". We have a set of steps on one level here that have 10 setps and my Fitbit sometimes registers as "one stair climbed" and other times it does not. We do have another set of stairs that has 14 steps and it registeres every time as "one stair climbed". It is the exercise that counts and if it comes close and you want to challenge it to get more steps or more stairs then that is so good. I have other steps counters that I have used in the past and so far I like the Fitbit better overall.
As a team we need to encourage, motivate and hold each other accountable
Share with the team what your Plan is, exercise? food plan? list goals etc.. anything that is moving you forward to meet your goals to a New you living the lifestyle.
I am doing a Low Glycemic index meal plan, limiting grains to 1-3x a week. I have 3 meals and 3 snacks.
I am doing Stretch max DVD each day, walking pilates DVD 3 days a week.
My goal is to be doing Jillian Michaels shred withing 8 weeks or less adding strength training, I just have some physical limitations right now.
I want to aim for 2lbs a week weight loss, but more importantly seeing my bodyfat % decrease, I am using a tanita scale, Also Measuring because often when the scale may be slow the INCHES show progress.
If you have any challenges you want to throw out to the team, bring it on!!
