Fit Bit

Yesterday I bought a Fit Bit to keep a bit fit :) I opted for the wrist band style, which is actually waterproof and can be worn in the shower, so in fact, you just have to take the band off to recharge the battery every five days or so.

When I bought the band, the shop wasn't very busy so the wonderful young man there, set up the system for me. This involved downloading the Bit Fit app, which I could have done myself, but it's always nice to have someone else do it and iron out any wrinkles before you leave the store. All this extra work was free, as was the app. In fact the Fit Bit was just $99.00 at Indigo. I saw it on-line for $129.00 and I might have had to pay for shipping.

In Training

My goal is to walk 10,000 steps a day. I didn't realize how easy it was to do that. If I did twice my daily walk, I would achieve that goal!! The Fit Bit also keeps track of weight loss, calories burned, and sleep patterns.

As I was walking back to work, I passed this man who was obviously training for something. He was walking along the road dragging this platform which was weighed down by 3 very heavy iron weights. The muscles in his legs were huge. I thought Tour de France or Iron Man. Meh, I think that I'll just stick with my Fit Bit for the moment :)

Have an energetic day!!
