Ryan's new favorite phrase of mine is, "I need to get my steps in." Actually it is not. I think he is over my new obsession. But I am in love. This little bracelet is AWESOME. You wear it around your wrist and it counts your steps. When you go to bed you can put it in sleep mode and it tracks your sleep; how many times you wake up and how many times you are restless. It tells you how many miles you have walked, how many active minutes you had during the day, and how many calories you burned.
The best thing about this is that it all syncs to your phone and you can be friends with people who also have a fitbit. So we do a lot of competitions at work which is why sometimes I find myself running the stairs of my house at night so I can compete with my co-workers. I guess that it is the true con, it can be a little obsessive. But mostly it has been eye opening. I thought I was an active person but it turns out you really have to work to achieve 10,000 steps a day. Oh, and if you do yoga it gives you about 4.5 steps for an hour! :)
Do you have a fitbit? Lets be friends!
