This is my Fitbit. It's a great gadget, it tacks the number of footsteps I take
per day, how many calories I burn, how much water I drink, and how long
and well I sleep each night.
Fitbit is a great motivator. It reminds you to move each hour and I am
really enjoying it because it helps me to stay on track with my healthy
lifestyle. I have been wearing it for 8 days now. All was going well until
the weekend. I was out of town both days and not walking as much as
I should. I also did not drink as much water as I should, and my sleep
What I have learned from this is that I love my Fitbit and love it
when it tells me I am doing a great job. We have a very happy
relationship. For example, last week when I hit my first 10,000 steps
in a day, Fitbit congratulated me with what looked like fireworks on
my wrist. I was thrilled and told my Fitbit thank you!
Over the weekend, when I was busy and not walking as much,
my Fitbit started reminding me. I was getting gentle prompts like
Want to Take a Stroll?
I started to resent those prompts ;-) Not only was I resenting
the prompts, but I was talking to MY WRIST! At the top of each
hour, I dreaded being reminded that I would not reach my daily
goal if I didn't step it up. I was concerned that I had not consumed
enough water and would have to gulp down 1000 ML at one time!
Suddenly, my sweet relationship with my Fitbit turned into a sour
one. It evolved into Guilt on a Wrist!
Now that the weekend is over and I am on my regular schedule,
I have apologized to my Fitbit and we are now on civil, even
friendly terms ;-)
Whoops ~ gotta go ~ I have to walk another 250 steps this
