I finally made the jump to the Fitbit and I’ve become obsessed with my Fitbit Alta fitness tracker. I’m aiming to get 10,000+ steps a day and have started making these small changes. I know I don’t hit it everyday, but it’s important to me that I’m trying.
The next step was investing into a scale that I was excited about and was accurate about my progress. Which is why I chose the Fitbit Aria Scale. If you’re already an active Fitbit user, the scale might be a great next step (pun intended). Here’s what I thought of the scale: (more…)
I have been traveling the past 25 of the last 30 days.
Which means I haven’t been eating well, my sleep patterns are off, I’ve been indulging in heavy restaurant meals and I have completely forgotten what working out is. In my attempt to get back in the saddle again, I’ve set a few goals to get myself back into shape and feeling healthy by the end of this year.
1) Walk 10,000+ steps a day – One of the biggest changes I will be making will be hitting a daily goal of 10,000 steps a day. It’s the minimum amount experts think we need to stay healthy and can decrease your risk for disease. I work from home and I sit at a desk all day. I thought going to the gym for an hour a day would be enough – it’s not. I logged a sad 3,500 steps on one of my ‘regular days’, which made me realize that I need to take action!
Action Plan – I have invested in this activity monitor (from $100) to track my steps. I’ve started to take walking conference calls, I walk to coffee, I check the mail, I take out the garbage, I go for an after dinner walk to help with digestion. I even park at the end of the parking lot, so I can get in my steps. If I could be walking, I am. My flight home was delayed for 5.5 hours and I walked around the airport, usually I would just sit there on my laptop. It’s these small changes I hope will make a difference.
