I ordered a fitbit force. If you have been following my blog you have seen some of my struggle with my weight and trying to get it where I want it and keep it there and how that has lead to a somewhat unhealthy amount of stepping on the scale and ignoring my actual health.
In my attempt to bring in the new year with a healthier focus and not just a pounds focus, I purchased this cool little fitness tracker . This little tracker links to my ipad, phone, and computer. I use it to track calories and water intake at the moment while it tracks my workouts and steps I take daily all on it’s own.
Positives- I love the fact it looks so modern.. It almost looks like a tracker from the future. It also comes in many colors now! The Force syncs fast with the computer and with all of the programs for easy tracking. I love that it tracks my calories and that I won’t feel the need to pay for weight watchers anymore. I like that it keeps track of the hours I am asleep so when I feel off, I can look down and see why. I love that it has an active min section. The dashboard is easy to use and access.
Negatives- It was a bit pricier than I thought it would be. I would have liked it to tell me when I started having active mins, like an active mins alert. Fully customization goals but to change any of the goals, you have to search for a bit. Silent alarm isn’t so silent. If you hear a cell phone vibrate, you will hear this.
Overall, I am enjoying using my fitbit to find ways to be healthy. I don’t have to force myself to remember that part of gaining freedom is the physical ability to do all of the hiking and exploring I would like to with out the fear of my knees or back not functioning like they should.
And now, to bed because the fitbit says I haven’t been getting enough restful sleep… and I’m sick as a dog. =)
Stay healthy and take care
