Fitbit Fever


OK, OK, here’s that post on the Fitbit you all begged for.



I have been wearing a Fitbit for about three years and am kind of nutso-crazy about it.  It’s like a pedometer on steroids, tracking your steps, activity level, stairs, and even your sleep if you would like it to. 

The best part is it records all this on your computer so you can see your progress over time.  Your buddies can also be on your leader board, so you can see how active you’ve been compared to them.  All four of my sisters have Fitbits and three of them are on my leader board.  These women are beasts about walking and a couple of them are extremely competitive.  (Maybe Betty is too, just a little….) 

Anyone who has a Fitbit can tell you it pretty much rocks his or her world.  My buddies who have Fitbits know what I am talking about.  It’s the first thing I grab in the morning and the last thing I take off at night.  It’s a great way to get your steps in during the day.  You can just plug the sensor into your computer, leave it there and it will pick up your steps whenever you get within fifteen feet. 

If you need some extra motivation or just want to see how far you are walking, a Fitbit might just be the thing for you. 

Happy Walking, My People!  Let’s stay healthy out there!

LOVE THE FITBIT!!!! Yup - I have the same one and it really does spur you on to getting your step in. I have not missed a day wearing it since I got it 2 years ago. Worth every penny. I love how it records everything.
Fantastic!!

Sounds cool. It must be good having something work for you while you go about your regular day activities.

The Fitbit sounds like a lot more fun than the boring, run of the mill pedometer. Thanks for the info, I'm going to check it out.

Thanks for that. I am a few steps (snort) closer to getting one now. If only it could help me dodge mosquitoes and black flies.

Never heard of this. I wonder how difficult it is to set up.

Daisy said...

I've heard a lot about these. I may have to get one and give it a try.

I have some friends that have one and they love it. Anything that helps us stay active is good in my book.
