I consider myself a decently active person. I am a teacher which means I rarely sit down while I am working. I work out 2-3 times a week and I have four kids who keep me on my toes--literally and figuratively. However, I was very curious to see HOW active I really was so I asked for a Fitbit Flex for Christmas. We got mine at Target on a screaming good deal on Black Friday. They normally run about $100 for the basic model. The main point of the device is to where it on your wrist so it can monitor the number of steps that you take in a day. It syncs with an app where you can keep track of your sleep, calories, and water intake as well. I convinced my hubby to get one too--he got the Big Daddy one with the heart rate tracker and such. I was a bit concerned that I would not like wearing it all of the time, but I really hardly even notice it. It is also extremely motivating. My daily goal is 10,000 steps and I do my darndest to make it! Even if it takes jogging in place next to my bed to get there!! Ha!! You can even add friends with a Fitbit and hold some harmless competitions. Keep scrolling for some links to Fitbit fun!
