Getting Fit!

Yesterday I got a Fitbit. It's a super cool piece of technology. I would describe it as a pedometer on steroids. It counts your steps, calories you've burned, average speed and so much it's amazingly accurate. My favorite part about it so far it how it tracks your sleep. It's pretty amazing. Here's a picture to better describe what it tracks while you sleep. Here's my sleep pattern for last night:

My Fitbit syncs all my activity to my computer so then I can look at these neat little graphs. I can also log what I eat online and keep track of all that. It also sets goals for you to keep you more motivated to be active.

It encourages to do 10,000 steps a day. I probably could have reached that goal yesterday, but I didn't have it powered up until 4pm. After I put it on I went and walked the dog and went for a bike ride and did as much activity as I could so I could make my stats look good (I'm somewhat competitive so having a goal is really motivating!)

It's really small and you just clip on to your waist or even your bra and then it does all the work.

 The flower in the above picture gets bigger the more active you are. Obviously I'm not very active this morning, haha. It will probably stay pretty small this morning 'cause I'm in the process of doing a huge mountain of laundry then I need to do some major cleaning!

Anyways, just thought I'd share a bit about this cool little piece of technology. Sometimes it can be so hard to stay motivated to be active and anything that can help is definitely worth the investment.

If you're interested about this and want to learn more, you should go to and read up about it and look at some YouTube videos of it!

Have a happy Monday!- Megan
