the fit bit.

My mom got me hooked...and a bunch of other people too.  Y'all, this is the fit bit.

This wonderful little thing is a daily activity, what does that mean?  It means that this little thing (most days) holds me pretty accountable to the activity that I do.  When I was teaching, I had absolutely no issues getting in the exercise I needed each day.  Now, that I sit at a desk most of the day, it take A LOT of work for me to get any exercise in.  As you can see in the pictures above, this tracker has several different settings.  It keeps track of your steps, the number of of stairs you climb, how many calories you have burned, and the number of miles you have gone. That little flower grows a little bit taller the more active you become.  This device is absolutely amazing.

Now, it's not the cheapest thing...its actually about $100, but it holds me accountable and sometimes that's all I need. One of the best parts about it is that I can compete with friends and family on the number of steps we take each day.  Currently, I compete against my mom and sister, some church friends, and a few co-workers.  It's fun, it's competitive, but most of all, it gets me outside walking.

Yep...even makes me put on tennis shoes with my dress to go walking. Bless my heart.
