FitBit is a Bust, So Far

Monday, June 17, 2013

Date: 2013-06-17, Monday

Today's Thoughts:

The greatest motivation is success. Find ways to be successful. Don't have time for a full workout? Try a small walk. Can't seem to increase your workout length or difficulty? Try being more consistent. Keep track of the improvement in consistency. Use the SP tracking goals. Going over your calories budget, daily? Try reducing the overages, and improving the consistency. Blog about your successes and failures. Blogging == attending. Attending yields tracking, assessing, planning, and most importantly, progress.

Need a reward for success? Increase workouts or consistency. Workout better nutrition plans or strategies. After all, what reward is better than a better you?

Data Points:
* Weight: unmeasured this AM.

* Sleep, Last Night: 3 hours.

* Walking: 75 very slow minutes

* Isometric Abs: 40 minutes

* Right Shoulder/Arm Exercises: 4 exercises x 40 reps x 2 sets

* Calorie Budget Adherence, Yesterday: Well within range.

* Calorie Budget Adherence, Today: 150 calories over range.

* FitBit, so far, a useless hunk of plastic.

    *snort* I guess FitBit being a useless hunk of plastic is true and positively true? I know I'm underwhelmed with mine and disinclined to upgrade to the wrist variation of FitBit.

    Besides, who know what NSA gets out of reading our sleeping and exercise stats?? reminds me of some of the scifi dystopian novels from the 1970's-80's etc.
