A FitBit is this little gadget above that tracks your steps, distance traveled, number of calories burned, and number of flights of stairs climbed every day. My FitBit fits snugly into my sports bra–it clips on! And you will often see me peeking into my cleavage to see how many steps I’ve taken so far in the day.
I love it.
As a candidate for a Masters in Public Health, with a track in Physical Activity in Public Health, increased physical activity is my JAM. I am all about promoting it, educating people on the benefits of it, and partaking in it. After all, practice what you preach. My daily step goal is 10,000. Often, I reach 12,000-15,000. At least once a week, I actually go over 20,000. But let me tell you–when I am under 10,000, you better bet that I get my butt moving.
Don’t get me wrong, high intensity physical activity is just as important to fit in as 10,000 steps a day (hey, sometimes they’re the same thing), but on days where I don’t fit in my workout (due to poor time management on my part, it makes me feel good to get in around 15,000 steps. Because hey, at least I was consistently moving throughout the day!
I highly recommend FitBit. Check out their products here.
