One of my goals for the year is exercise. It's something I really need to do but just haven't been able to get myself on top of. I've been contemplating a gym membership, but I don't really want to spend the money on it because who knows how consistent I would be with it? We have an elliptical in the basement but it's so cold down there I don't want to use it. I have a million excuses and I just need to get over myself.
I was thinking it might be helpful to see kind of where I stand as far as fitness goes, so today I want to talk about the Fitbit. As I am generally behind on everything new in the world lately, especially in the form of technology, the Fitbit is one of those things I keep hearing about around all the social media outlets. I kept wondering what it is, but since things are fleeting in my brain lately, I generally would forget to look it up when I would think of it. Then on New Year's eve we had some family over and several of them had Fitbit products so I finally got to see what it was.
"When it comes to reaching your fitness goals, steps are just the beginning. Fitbit tracks every part of your day—including activity, exercise, food, weight and sleep—to help you find your fit, stay motivated, and see how small steps make a big impact." There are several different products from a belt clip to a wrist band to a wi-fi scale. They can be synched to an app that helps record and monitor all your data and compiles it to let you know how you're doing. I find the concept of an activity tracker completely interesting and would love to see where I stand on a fitness level, plus I'm ondering if I have a little machine tracking me and telling me I didn't do so well today if it would push me to do better the next day.
So what I'd like to know from you out there reading, is if you have one, which one you have, how you use it, and if you like it. Give me all the dirty details so I can be on my way to determining if this would be a good choice for me.
