I have to tell you about this amazing little gadget I got. When we got our taxes back my husband and I both got a little bit to splurge. I spent all of mine on one thing. It is called a Fitbit. It is a little pedometer on steroids.
It records your steps, miles, calories burned, activity level, how many floors you have climbed, the time, has a timer on it and monitors your sleep activity (telling you how active you are while you are sleeping). It is awesome. If it just had a heart rate monitor on it it would be perfect. It syncs with the computer and you can monitor everything on line. Well I am addicted, I think it must be tainted with some type of habit forming drug.
It also gives you goals that you have to reach. Like in the beginning my step goal is 10,000 steps, you have a calorie burn goal, a mile goal, a floors climbed goal and an active score. What makes it so addicting for me is once I reach one goal or am close to reaching the goal, I want to keep walking to reach the goal or to obtain one of the other goals. Then once I reach it I may get closer to reaching another goal and the process starts all over for me. I am always trying to reach a new goal.
I am a very sedentary person, between my job and sewing so I needed this push. I am constantly walking around my desk or the conference table at work, or just going up and down stairs to get more floors in. I am in love. I have had it 3-4 weeks and at first it was a struggle to get 10,000 steps in a day but now I am doing almost 12,0000 with no issues. It is a bit pricey, it is around 100 dollars but for me, it was so worth it. If you are interested in checking it out here is the link.
I hope you are having a good week so far and finding a little stitching time!!
