Well I have been wearing my fitbit for a week now...... I managed to lose 3 pounds (see the coffee and the jam DO count!)
I have been fascinated by the way it tracks my exercise/steps and because I enter what I eat - how it tracks my food intact with my calorie burn off.
But I am also getting a kick out of the "challenges". I noticed one day last week a message from youngest daughter on my fitbit challenging me to some thing or another. I didn't understand/get it ... and couldn't find the damn message later on... so it got ignored.
Then Friday my son-in-law sent me another challenge thingy and I got him to explain it to me. This neat lil bracelet has an app for your phone - where you can challenge your friends to things like "weekend warrior". Weekend warrior challenges you to walk more steps than the other challenged players (cheeky grin) in a 48 hour period.
I accepted ..... and despite walking Saturday and Sunday on the treadmill for 45 minutes each day - AND - walking after supper each evening I still managed to lose (le sigh) BUT I broke my all time high for steps taken in a day - both days! YAY me!
And then to brighten up my exercise passion - W brought home a new strap for me. I (being colour blind) swore it was red - but it turns out it is tangerine. So IF I see it as red - is it red??? or is it tangerine???
Truthfully colour doesn't matter - what does matter is I am enthusiastic once again about something in my life....... about making my life a little bit better............
so when I die they can say about me -- she
"exercised every day and died healthier" !!!
