Fitbit. I love it. Let’s be honest, I’m a bit obsessed with my gadget. I have been since the I got it a year and a half ago. It tracks my steps, flights of stairs climbed, sleep, calories burned and activity level. It has a barcode scanner to input food and the app is free, unlike bodybugg. My ultra tracker is a bit battered and bruised and I’m hoping to upgrade to the Force model soon so I can wear it on my wrist instead of in my bra.
The other day I got an email from Fitbit with a quick summary of my 2013 Fitbit activity. It was kind of fun to see. I walked 1270 miles which is longer than the Tigris River or the equivalent of walking from my house to Hartford, Connecticut. I’d say that’s some decent mileage. As you can see below it also broke down my most active weekday (Mondays), my most active month (January) and my most active day of the year (August 26th). The month of November and Fridays were my least active. Nothing earth shattering but kind of fun to see. Maybe in 2014 I can walk my way back to Los Angeles (1700 miles). So far I’m on track for a great year. Last week alone I walked 35.77 miles. That’s definitely upping my average. I credit my increased steps/mileage to my step challenge I have going on with Melody and Kara. Love those ladies and the way they inspire me. I worked hard to win last week’s challenge and will continue to do so in upcoming weeks.
