So a week ago I got my new fitbit flex and so far I am loving it! At the end of week one I was really hoping to hit 80,000 so that I would have exceeded my weekly goal by 10,000 steps! Well I am happy to report that i managed it – I got 84, 938 steps which made my daily average 12,134. If i can keep this up I feel certain I will see real changes soon.
It’s been a great way of forcing myself to take the longer route home and to hit the stairs as and where I can. I have been very lucky that P has joined me on two walks to get the steps up and was willing to babysit my stuff so I could go and do some serious walking along the beach.
I have participated and won some competitions which has been very motivating and I also got a marathon badge.
Seriously I couldn’t recommend the fitbit more and I really loathe exercise. It’s even made me wonder how much I could rack up on a treadmill…
