I’ve discovered the greatest tool for staying active, ever! That is my Fitbit!
It’s helped me so much with my health journey so I want to share it with you.
Fitbit is an activity tracker. It tracks literally everything. From the number of steps you take in one day, your weight, water intake, calories burned and sleep.
It’s awesome, and if you are health conscious I recommend it to you.
I never thought that I would be one of those people walking around with one. I mean, quite frankly they look pretty dorky hahaha.
The reason I decided to invest in one was because I knew that my day to day activity levels had drastically dropped after switching to a desk job. Of course, I didn’t realize how bad until I started to track my activity.
To give you an idea, the suggested amount of steps a healthy person should take in one day is an average of 10,000 (around 5 miles). Before getting my Fitbit, I was not working out and barely moving at work so I was averaging only 2-3000. Yup, I was on my way to a flat office chair butt!
Needless to say, it has become a must. Here are some of the factors that make the Fitbit fun!
Once you start to actually MOVE, you will be awarded badges that showcase your accomplishments and push you to go further.
As an example, on Saturday I climbed 75 floors without knowing it! Once I was conscious of this, I made it a goal to climb 100.
Another great thing about the Fitbit is that you can participate in challenges with friends. I have a weekly competition with mine. We love it, because it helps us stay accountable and to boost each other to workout.
I also really love how you can integrate your Fitbit to My Fitness Pal (logs food) and workout apps (provide exercise ideas and routines). Oh, and it can sync up with your messages and calls as well (like any smart watch).
To keep it simple, it’s easier to achieve your fitness goals when you actually KNOW what you’re getting out of and doing for your body!
It’s helped me understand my body and stay optimistic through out my health journey.
Do you have a Fitbit? What do you think about it?
