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
