Well, I did it. I bought a Fitbit.
I have gone back and forth on whether I wanted a fitness tracker ever since fitness trackers were introduced.
Honestly, I didn’t want something telling me when I wasn’t being active, so I had decided that it wasn’t for me. It took me a long time to get to a place where I didn’t feel guilty about so many things that were related to my diet and exercise. I didn’t want to deal with a fitness tracker telling me that I needed to move if I hadn’t done so in the time that it thought that I should. Make sense?
I love to walk and I love my yoga classes (although it seems like forever since I made it to Yoga!), but I’ve now become increasingly curious about how active I really am on those days that I am super busy and on the go, but don’t actually “exercise”. I’ve decided that I just might like to know how many steps I am getting in and what my heart rate is doing.
It always feels good to have a new challenge and I’m looking forward to playing with my new toy!
Day one? 8548 steps.
Day two? 7375 steps.
The recommended amount is 10,000, and I set a personal goal for myself of 12,000, so I’ve come up short the last two days, but I’m including these steps in my 100 Miles! I feel like 100 miles in March is never going to end, and I can’t really extend March any longer than I have!
I still have 17 miles to go.
Here she is. After a week or so, I’ll let you know my thoughts on it.
This particular one is the Fitbit Alta HR.
Have a great day! I’ve got steps to count!
