Things We Love: Our Fitbits

So…you all know that Finch and I have Fitbits.  If you’re new to our blog, a Fitbit is the coolest fitness tool/pedometer ever.  Finch calls hers her own 24-7 fitness trainer…and she’s not wrong!

The OneThe Fitbit charges on your computer, where it can also link to your Fitbit dashboard, which records all your stats.  It clips to your pants or shirt (or whatever) so it’s with you all the time.  Among the many amazing things it can do for you:

  • Records each step you take over the course of a day
  • Records your calorie burn
  • Tallies how many times you go up and down the stairs
  • Tallies the number of miles you walk in a day
  • Displays the time
  • Shows you (via your online dashboard) what kind of sleep you get each night

If those weren’t enough, it also has a playlist of encouraging words to help you keep going.  You input your name, so it even personalizes them!  Here’s a list of some of my favorites:

  • Bonjour, Wren
  • Let’s go, Wren
  • Hug me, Wren
  • Ready, Wren
  • Stepgeek Wren

Apparently it has a ton of these notes…and I haven’t even gotten all of them.  One of the funniest I heard about is:  “NO DONUT.”  Fortunately for me and my Fitbit, we don’t have a Krispy Kreme for miles!

This is a wonderful tool any time…but especially so in the beginning of the year, when all things are fresh and new.  Including my fitness hopes and dreams!

Enjoy!  –Wren
