Fitbit Free

I turn 50 next year. Wow. How did that happen? It sure went by quickly! I want to look and feel my best for my big 5-0, so I decided I need to make some changes that included some healthier habits. In November I cut way back on Diet Coke. I’ve gone from one or two a day to three or four a month. I can finally walk down the pop aisle at the grocery store and not stare longingly at the shelves that hold my only source of caffeine. In February, I started eating smaller portions, fewer carbs, less sugar, and more salads. And while I’ve only lost a few pounds, I will admit I feel better. In March, I bought a new Fitbit. During the week I love being reminded to move around more. I can get a little competitive about getting my steps in.

But I draw the line at wearing it on Sundays. It’s my day to relax. If that means sitting on my couch and reading for three hours or taking a nap, or binge watching Netflix with my daughter, I do not want my wristband buzzing every hour reminding me to get off my butt. I deserve a day to do nothing. I don’t need a Fitbit to remind me to do the laundry before school tomorrow or clean the bathrooms. I’ll put it back on tomorrow when I join the real world

  1. It sounds like you have such a healthy mindset around these changes you’re putting into place! It was fun to read about how you’ve approached developing healthier habits. This line particularly felt like it captured your great progress: “I can finally walk down the pop aisle at the grocery store and not stare longingly at the shelves that hold my only source of caffeine. ” Congratulations!

  2. Thank you for relieving my guilt as I left mine off most of the day. I really just forgot to put it back on after I took it off to charge it. We are in a walking challenge at work, and I am doing my part, but it is nice to just not wear it all the time. Sunday seems like a great day for that!

  3. I applaud you for taking some “me time” on Sundays! Self-care is so important. I gave up Diet Coke a year ago, but I need to work on my other eating habits. Swee tea as an alternative wasn’t a good choice!
