A new gadget….Fitbit

I have mentioned before that I am taking back my health ….thats if you don't include me eating a piece of birthday cake everyday for the last 7 days..oops.
I never thought of myself as a gadget person, but I do love to document, keep lists and keep track of things.
I have always kept track of my progress and my walks in a journal.
I have used a heart monitor watch..I liked that :)
Then I used pedometers…I LOVED my pedometers…I had many of them….like over 10.
I have been using my "Map my Walk". Yup, I'm obsessed with this app.
I love to not only see my walking route, but also the calories I have burned and the pace of my walk.

Then I heard about this neat gadget.
So I convinced Wayne that we each should get one.
Wayne being the master of all gadgets, it didn't take much to convince him ;)
It is a bracelet (But don't tell Wayne that, he would not like that description :) which has a computer chip in it to monitor and keep track of your progress.
It keeps track of our steps, calories, distance and how active we have been. Actually it keeps track of so  much more…even your sleep pattern!
We had to set it up on our computers and then sync our fitbit to our computer so it can download our progress, and keep track of it.
We kept syncing our bracelets to the computer to see our hourly progress, lol.
The only thing I wish it had was the time. Then I wouldn't need to wear a watch.
The fitbit is to be worn on your non-dominant wrist…which is wear my watch.
I wear Wayne's old watch. Even though it is huge, I love that it glows in the dark and I know what time it is in the middle of the night.
I may need a new smaller watch now ;)

So welcome to my new obsession ;)

Hope you all had a Creative Day :)

Tracy :)


  1. I think I might need to get me one! I'm so proud of you for taking control of your health....I'm still trying to get on that path, slowly but surely. It's mental thing for me, ugh, but something that I desperately need to do. Thanks for the inspiration and I look forward to your updates! :)

  2. This is great! Can't wait to hear how you like this, as time goes on. Seems like everyone has a fit bit now!! :)

  3. Recently saw these, you will have to let us know how you get on with it. Come September, when the girls are back in school and its a bit cooler, I would like to start up my Nordic Walking again - I had so much benefit from it the last time. Have a great week.

  4. This is a really interesting gadget. Thanks for sharing it and all that it can do. Off to check on the price.

  5. Have fun with your new gadget, Tracy! I'm like you, love keeping track of things and if I could get my butt in gear (literally) I'd so have one of these! :)

  6. Several of us ladies have discussed the Fit Bit , it sounds very interesting and functional. Have fun with your new gadget. Very creative weekend 5 cards and 6 ATC for a swap. awesome weekend.

  7. The gadget sounds great! So nice that you are being in control of your health--I myself am trying to get into the routine of walking every morning instead of sleeping in, lol :)

  8. I just got myself one of these beauties a few weeks it :) do you know you can also download an app on the iphone and can sync to that? much easier

  9. This is awesome! I have heard chatter about it, but this has been, by far, the best REAL PERSON description (not an advertisement). Please keep us up to date on your progress and how you like it. Pros/cons, etc. I'm really interested in this! :)

  10. I dont need a gadget to tell me I am lazy. I know already. Lol


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
