SPARK JOY #2 FITBIT FLEX


I've had my Fitbit Flex for over two years now, and I love it still. 

It's an activity tracker that you wear on your wrist, though I mostly wear it on my ankle, and it counts (somewhat accurately) the steps you take. The aim is to take 10 000 steps a day, or you can set any other step goal you want. I've heard 10k for health, 15k for weight loss.

Since getting pregnant I stopped doing pretty much all other exercise except walking. I know it would be good to do some weight lighting too, buuuuuut... For now, I just walk. I really feel that my Fitbit combined with breastfeeding made all the pregnancy weight just slide off without any dieting.

The beauty of Fitbit is that it counts the steps you take and you can take the steps any time that suits you. You don't have to walk for an hour at a time, just pay attention and get the steps in during the day and you are golden.  It's a great way to increase your activity level without having to exercise per se. So if you have a few minutes here and there during the day that's enough! Great when you have a kid. 

Just wearing the Fitbit pushes me to get more steps. I wear it all the time and am kind of bummed when I have to take it off for charging or showering. I mean, is there any point in even moving if I'm not wearing my Fitbit?
