Fitbit - Day One

This isn't a review, more a sharing of my pain. (Although I will be reviewing this in more detail in the future.) 

Firstly, if I told you I had spent all day playing with a Fitbit, you'd be jealous wouldn't you?

"Who me? Oh I've been fiddling with a Fitbit all day?"

Yes, I may have used that line a couple of times today, let me just say it had the required result. (raised eyebrows and no eye-contact) 

In case you didn't know, a Fitbit is like a sexy pedometer.

It even links to your PC/Mac, and it OBVIOUSLY has an App.

Right, now I know it LOOKS as though I have the get up and go of a dead tortoise but I assure you this is not the case.

Firstly, I didn't set this up properly until lunchtime, I run around like a blue-arsed fly in the mornings

Secondly, I AM LAZY!!!!

Personally, I think that this is quite a good excuse. In fact the best excuse ever.

But the one thing that I found today was that I felt guilty every time I sat down, and considering that I work from home, I sit on my backside rather often. It was like having a silent drill inspector digging me out with silent looks of disapproval. (It's like being judged by my mother) I have caught myself walking up and down the kitchen a couple of extra times.


Hang on, is this EXERCISE?

I curse my competitive nature, I know that however many steps I take today I am going to want to beat it tomorrow, (although I am going shopping tomorrow, let's see how many steps I take at Lakeside)

Anyone else get Fitbit guilt? OR will I get bored?

Let me know.

  1. Keep going missis!!! And hey I'm a lazy bitch too ;) we'll soon be reformed characters *eyes up new treadmill*

  2. Oh no, you will get fitbit guilt. It's kind of addictive and you will find yourself walking up and down the stairs at random times to get your stats up. Which one have you got? I have the one that analyses sleep as well and that's scary. I knew I slept badly but how badly surprised me! Lack of sleep makes you fat. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

    1. I have the zip. I don't sleep either. It sucks.

  3. I have a Nike Fuelband which does pretty much the same thing. I've had it about a year and a half and I STILL have competitions with myself to try and beat my best day etc. I think these devices are a great motivator whether you're super active or just getting into fitness - mainly because it shows that simple movement is important. You don't have to spend two hours in the gym every day to be 'working out'. Your Fitbit stats will show you that being active comes in many forms. Keep on keepin' on!

  4. Consider this post read. Stick that it ya pipe and smoke it :p
