It’s been awhile since my last entry. I’ve been so busy training and doing my own workouts. I bought a Fitbit in January and I have been using it to track my steps and stairs climbed. For those of you who need motivation and accountability, the Fitbit is a clever solution to keep you inspired. I like the messages I get when I have over exceeded my goal – “You climbed the Statue of Liberty today!” or if I have little remaining to accomplish my goal – “You’ve only get 564 steps to your goal.”
There is also a fitbit community, which is quite useful! I like most everything my fitbit – except that it clearly overestimates caloric intake. Overall, it’s an excellent tool for those of us who like to track our workouts. It syncs with your smartphone, once you’ve downloaded the app, and you can enter in and see the data on your computer. Technology is getting better and better in these areas. I highly recommend it!
