FitBit Flex Friend – Love it or List it?


I choose to… Love it!!!

Yes I have bought one of these… And I love it so far! These were at Costco and I was sold. So far I’ve set my goal for 10,000 steps a day which equates to 5 miles. If you have a semi desk job like me, it sure motivates you to get your butt off your chair and to take a walk. It definitely keeps you in check! Set whatever goals you’d like, enter in your food intake, it measures calories burned – sold. Time to get steppin’! br />

Determined


I recently had blood tests done and found that my diabetes has gotten slightly worse due to not being able to exercise as much. I worked as a tennis pro full time until December when I accepted work in the Billing & Accounts department. I am now more in operations and teaching less which means less time to exercise. These are all great moves for my career. But this means a difference in my daily activity level. So now, it has proven that I need to make more time to be active. Three days a week running with the wolfpack and one to two days doing spin, three to four days doing weights at home – this is what I am committed to. My doctor writes, every person and each treatment is specialized based on the individual. For me, and many others, exercise is key to insulin absorption, and burning off the carbohydrates/sugars that I consume. If I do not exercise more, my medications will need to be adjusted accordingly. So, I am determined to make my health right and consistently above par.
