Fitbit system upgrade

Last month, my Fitbit Flex got a software upgrade so that it automatically switches into sleep mode. This is handy because previously B and I had to tap our Fitbits in a certain way to get them to swap over to sleep mode at night and then do it again in the morning to get it back to normal mode. It was easy to forget, which defeated the purpose of tracking sleep and steps in the first place.

As things are getting back to some semblance of routine with B back at work after holiday vacation time, I am trying to be more diligent about getting my steps in. My best practice is to walk while I talk to my mom (nearly) every morning. Most days I get at least halfway to my goal before we hang up. If we are especially talkative, I may get to my goal of 5,000 steps! (Yes, I know 10,000 is recommended, but it is better for me to have a lower goal and overachieve than to set a high goal that I seldom reach.)

After T goes back to school, I may fire up our Wii Fit and try to add some other exercise to my day. I haven’t used it for a long time, so I’ll have to put up with a bit of Wii whining. Those of you who have used Wii Fit know what I mean…

    1. You have such a busy life, it’s no wonder the Wii Fit gathers dust! Step trackers, of whatever type, are a help, though. I do think the awareness of number of steps is motivating, as long as one doesn’t get obsessed with it.

  1. I scam off my husband’s Fitbit. I love it, but we’ve been keeping the grand babies for three days and Fitbit awareness has flown out the window. I’m looking forward to focusing on walking when we finish with our babysitting duties later this week.
