I’ve been changing things little by little over the past few weeks, working on controlling myself better, eating better, sleeping better, moving more.
It hasn’t been easy, especially with the kid starting preschool and trying to create a whole new routine while fighting a cold.
But a few weeks ago I ordered a Fitbit – which is something I think the women on this blog have written about before. It’s just a little thing that I clip onto my clothes and get on with my day. I bought the Zip, which tracks my steps, my calories burned and the level of my activity. You can get more expensive ones that track more.
Since I started wearing the Fitbit about a week ago I have become very interested in the information it gives me. I have been pushing myself to get my steps in every day. I have been very excited to see the big smiling happy faces that show up when I’ve done well.
They make me giddy, it’s kind of embarrassing.
Getting my steps has encouraged me to walk around the house tidying at the end of the day, take the dog for longer walks, and get back on my treadmill.
It’s nice to have a bit of a daily kick in the pants.
