Physical Education: Do you FitBit?

imageI am completely obsessed with my FitBit activity tracker. It keeps tracks of my steps throughout the day when I’m working or working out. I can track my steps via my phone or IPad and no one knows I’m wearing it. My personal goal is to accumulate 15,000 steps per day. I usually log in between 5,000 – 10,000 steps at school. An average boot camp class gets about 3,000 steps and a 45 minute spin class class earns 5,000. Sometimes if I haven’t met my goal at the end of the day, I go out and walk around my neighborhood or jog in place while watching tv.

Here are the details for the FitBit Zip:
Tracks steps, distance and calories burned
Syncs automatically to your computer or select bluetooth 4.0 smartphones or tablets
Set goals, view progress and earn badges
Share and compete with friends throughout the day
Free iphone and android application

Since I love my FitBit so much, I thought it would be a great gift for my mom for Mother’s Day (pink) and an early Father’s Day (grey) gift for my dad. I bought them from Amazon.com and they were $49 each.  I spent part of Mother’s Day getting them set up on my parents’ IPads. They are going to see how many steps they take on an average day and then we will set up their goals. If you like data and seeing your daily progress, you will love the FitBit. All my friends have them and it’s fun to compare our steps and goals.

This is what I see on my phone at the end of each day. I love the feeling of meeting my daily goal!

imageToday was a great day! Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mothers I know! My mom is awesome and she deserved some fun treats. In addition to her FitBit, I bought her a cute black, white, and pink clutch/IPad case from C. Wonder. In our family, our teddy bears buy gifts for us, so my bears gave Nance Bear some cute foam stickers that she can add to the cards she makes. We had a fun dinner together as a family and we took a long overdue family photo. Our family teddy bear, Christopher Bear gave me a Nordstrom gift card because he didn’t want me to feel left on on Mother’s Day! He’s a very thoughtful bear!
