I think my fitbit has become my motivator to reach my JC goals. It gets me up in the morning and has gotten me in the habit of walking 20 - 30 minutes and 1 -2 miles before I do anything else.
Each hour it tells me that it is time for me to move again. It tells me how many calories I have burned and how long I have been moving. I'm not sure how accurate the calories are, but it is on my wrist so I'm thinking it knows what my heartrate is at all times.
It has made my life simpler as it is synced with SP and I don't have to run back to record my exercise minutes or walking minutes.
It encourages me to keep moving because of the challenges. I don't like not being first. I used to struggle with 4,000 steps a day and now I can get 8,000 by midmorning.
For whatever reason, I just can't ignore it. I think the thing has become an obsession. Each hour I think to myself that it is time to move again. It tells me it's time to move 250 steps, but I aim for 1,000 each hour. This week, I have managed to get 13,000 + steps everyday.
Now, I'm not sure what all this will show on the scale this week. I have only been able to go for walks. I haven't been able to get on the treadmill or to the gym as I have been sick and I don't like infecting others if I can help it. Not to mention my head is rather fogged and walking on a moving object does not seem like a good thing to do.
I am determined, motivated and I am to do this!
