A couple months ago, I tried running and I promised to keep you updated, which I didn’t and I’m sorry but truthfully it didn’t go so well. I tried a few sessions with the app and remembered why I never having any success with running. I’m still going to participate in the 5k, I can walk pretty fast. And I’m still really trying to get in better shape. I know that’s a vague goal and maybe I don’t exactly have a goal right now but just be more active.

In order to try to help with that, I purchased a FitBit Zip. I’ve toyed with idea of getting a FitBit for a while. I’ve tried pedometers on my phone and find that they aren’t usually accurate or I don’t constantly have my phone on me (shocking, I know). I was worried that the size of it would be an issue but it really is tiny. I’ve only been using it a couple days so far but it’s really reminded me how inactive I am on a regular basis. I sit at a desk, like so many people, and by the time I got home yesterday, I was barely at 3000 steps (you should be around 10,000). I knew that sitting at a desk wasn’t great for my health but I didn’t realize how inactive it really made me. I bought the Zip for $49.99 at Best Buy, it was on sale from $59.99.

it's so tiny!

I’d really like to find other people with the FitBit app, I think it would be a fun way to know how I’m doing, plus competition is always so much fun. Do any of you have a FitBit? Let me know and we can definitely connect.

  1. FitBit sounds like an interesting thing to have. Now that I work 8+ hours a day sitting in front of a computer, I’ve been worried about all the negative things that can so to my body. I did some research and discovered that standing desks are great. But I definitely feel that something that calculates your steps is a great thing to have!
