Fitbit

I got myself a Fitbit Flex last week. I need to work on my fitness in a major way and I'm hoping this little bracelet will be a daily reminder. It's basically a fancy pedometer. It counts steps, records active minutes, shows how many calories you've burned, and monitors sleep. You can also use it to track how many calories you eat and how much water you drink. It syncs to your phone and computer and gives you great charts and graphs to help you set and maintain goals. You can also add friends and earn badges and other fun stuff. I kinda love it.


I haven't used it to it's full potential since I've been so sick lately, but it's been interesting to see how much I do just by chasing my kids around and running errands. An average of 6,000 steps while sick isn't too shabby, in my opinion. I'm also obsessed with my sleep cycle. I always thought I was a completely sound sleeper, but I'm actually restless about twenty times a night (again, that could be because I've been sick). I don't know what that means or what the norm is yet, but I think it's fascinating. On Monday I logged my very first active minute. Unfortunately it was because I ran to my car in the pouring rain from the froyo place. I don't think that's exactly what they're looking for.


I'm so excited for the Tory Burch collaboration this spring. I don't mind wearing my little black bracelet, but something pretty, shiny, and gold would obviously look better, especially when going out at night.


Do you have a fitness accessory?
Do you feel like it's helping you stay on track?

I assume since you wear it all day you don't need one of those chest things for a fit bit is that right?

I was into getting a Polar fitness watch but then saw you had to wear the strap (for the heart monitor) around your chest under your clothing and I really didn't want to have to mess with that every day when I worked out - this seems awesome. I'd love to know about my sleep cycles etc.

I also have a fitbit. I have the "one" instead of the flex. :)

OMG I have a FitBit One instead of the Flex, and that TB pendant is making me regret this! I love my One, but need to get back on track with watching it more!
