Also, the weather outside has been rainy, rainy, rainy!
So on to Week 4 instead. This was a very active week thanks to Thanksgiving and all of the hiking that I did with my dogs! Weight loss was minimal but my trend is still going down and I’m happy with the weeks results. I didn’t log any sleep with the FitBit this week.
Thanksgiving with the family is all about food and eating, so making healthy choices and all of the extra hiking really helped out this year!
Hope every one had a happy Turkey-Day!
I’ve been trying out a lot of nice gadgets lately and one of them is a Fitbit Ultra. It’s a small unit about the size of a thumb drive and is used to monitor various activities. This chart shows my first weeks statistics with the Fitbit.
It keeps tracks of how many stairs you climb, you many steps you take, how well you sleep at night and even has an estimate of how many calories you have burned. It does just about everything, but it’s not a heart rate monitor. If you want to track your heart rate, you’ll still need a separate unit for that.
I like how compact it is and that you don’t have to plug it in to transfer the data. It comes with a USB stand that attaches to a computer and you just need to be within 15 feet or so of the stand and it will auto-transfer your stats. It even syncs with a Withings scale!
The website that works with the unit also lets you log additional exercises or activities and even has a food tracker.
It’s a pretty solid product and I’m really liking it so far!
