My new fitness gadget
I have an early morning work meeting, but I wanted to share my new fitness gadget with you.
Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to find your motivation, put on your shoes and run. That has been me since we got back from vacation. I want to run, but have found every excuse not to. Plus I have the Mermaid Duathlon sneaking up on me. Yikes.
Emily has a fitbit and over the weekend I picked her brain about it. Since she really likes it, I thought it might be a great way to loosely track my daily activity. I’m still not sure how accurate they are, but at least I’ll have a general idea.
I did a little more research online and this new fitness geek has another gadget to play with.
I started using it around 3:30-4pm ish and couldn’t wait to test it out. I took Bam for a walk around the ‘hood. Being outside is always so refreshing I didn’t want to stop. So quickly changed into my beloved Mizuno’s and hit up the trail. I felt a headache coming on the last two days, so I took it easy but turns out it completely cured it. Now I am convinced running is the cure for everything.
My activity log. Can you see the Type A smiling right now?
Now if only I can figure out how to add friends….
How do you motivate yourself to do a workout?
Usually a coffee after works, but this time it was too late in the day.
What is your favorite fitness gadget?
Anyone else have a fitbit? I’m all ears to your experiences/advice.
