My boyfriend’s roommate asked me what my best Christmas present was this year to which I replied “my fitbit”. His response was “So are you a fitbit person?” and I replied with “Now I am”.
I’m such a fitbit person that I bought a nice rose gold band for it so that I could wear it for fancy occasions- it worked very well at a wedding and no one questioned it.
Honestly, I’m not completely sure what the other side of it is. If you’re not a Fitbit person are you an IFit person? Garmin? Swatch? Or did you go big with the apple watch?
For our 2016 Christmas my step dad asked my mom if my sisters and I would like fitbits for christmas and she said no. He asked us after Christmas and ⅔ replied with yes. He was less than pleased.
So guess what was at the top of my list this year?
The rose gold & lavender band Fitbit Charge 2. About $20 more than any of them that weren’t rose gold but the millennial in me thought it was necessary, for I was about to pair this athletic watch with every outfit I could.
I see how many hours I slept, how many steps I took, my heart rate, the calories I’ve burned, stairs I’ve climbed, and the distance I’ve traveled. I also have a stopwatch, I can set alarms, and I receive text and call notifications.
Only downside I’ve experienced is that when I get under 10,000 steps in a day my mom gives me just a little bit of crap for it. However, she’s someone who will keep walking around the block until she hits her 10,000 steps.
I am living for it. I’ve never liked wearing watches before and now I never take this one off. And it’s created something to work towards everyday. For someone who hates working out as much as I do, the Fitbit makes me want to.
P.S. The gym isn’t so bad if you download a Netflix show to watch 😉 and it doesn’t use your data plan to do so.
When my dad was in rehab last summer he texted my mom after his physical therapy one day and said:
“This whole working out thing isn’t so bad. I should’ve tried this a while ago.”
