You might remember some of my posts from last month about trying to move a little more-in fact, it was part of my resolution. After those posts, I got a few notes from blog readers including one from my cousin. Several people recommended getting a Fitbit Zip Wireless Activity Tracker.
I have long wanted a pedometer in fact I have bought several..all haven’t worked. I even got an app for my phone that is a pedometer. That one did work and I did like it but it only worked if the app was on and that drained the battery like crazy. I had pretty much given up having a pedometer so I was really happy to get the recommendations and even happier that more than one person recommended the same product…in fact everyone recommended it. That was enough for me to bite the bullet and get a pedometer.
So far, I like it…sadly the weather here isn’t cooperating so I’m not able to get outside and walk. The weather has been well below zero.
For now I am using it all day long trying to just add a few more steps in the house. Once the weather gets a little better I am hoping to get close to the desired 10,000 steps a day. My cousin Deb and blog reader Lani have both dropped lots of pounds by walking and watching their food intake….
I don’t know if I’ll loose weight but at least now I can’t use the excuse of not having a quality pedometer. Sometimes part of getting healthier is just eliminating some of the excuses.
