I've joined the Fitbit bandwagon. I'm so excited for my new toy and am hoping it will help me toward making a conscious effort to being more active. If your not familiar with what a Fitbit is, it's basically a device that tracks your steps, daily mileage, calories burned, etc. You can also link up with others in daily or weekly challenges to see who can log the most steps. I haven't gotten there yet though.
I'm starting off by just seeing how many steps I do take on average. So far I've learned that if we get outside the house and do something, it's no problem to reach 10,000 steps per day. However, if we spend a lazy day at home, I fall far short of the 10,000 step goal. During the summer months, we went to the park or played outside here at home almost daily. Having our twice weekly Community Playgroup will help on rainy days. I'm just going to have to concentrate on being more active on those days we are stuck inside as well.
