I don’t jump on fitness decisions because I’m not really committed to fitness. Truth. I’ve been thinking about getting one of these calorie / step trackers for about 6 months. Sort of toying with it back and forth / marinading it… but not jumping because it’s a big purchase. $100!

But yesterday I did it because Caleb is 7 months old and it’s just about time to cut the cr**. I’m done making babies and it’s time to get back into shape and into my wardrobe. I’m sick of looking at all my pre-pregnancy clothes and not being able to fit into them. So, while I was out buying Liam a new pair of sneakers, I grabbed a FitBit and threw it at the cashier along with my credit card.

And here we are.

It’s on my wrist. I just set it up. I have two calls this morning and as soon as I wrap them I am OUTTA here! Going for a nice walk with Caleb and hopefully will be able to hit today’s goal (which I think is a steep one).

The FitBit automatically starts you out at 10,000 steps for your daily goal. Isn’t that a lot? For someone who works… I can’t imagine being able to hit that? But I’m going to try!

Here’s a few things I didn’t know about the FitBit which I thought was interesting.

There is an entire dashboard that you can use to help track your food / drink intake.

Tracking sleep? Sort of obsessed with this! Going to look into this tonight for sure!

You don’t have to take it off in the shower which means you can keep it on 24 hours a day. Brilliant!

I’ll let you know how it goes. Whether or not it motivates me to walk more. Knowledge is power, right?

The main reason why I bought the FitBit is because I wanted to see how many calories I actually burned while taking gym classes. VERY VERY curious about that. Starting tomorrow at the gym. Today is a brisk walk with Caleb . I know I’m going to be tired and starving, since it will be all new to me. Maybe I’ll give Subway a call, since Subway provides corporate catering. I have a feeling that a normal snack/after workout drink won’t be quite enough. LOL!
