Track Those Steps

I treated myself to a Fitbit. I have been thinking about getting one for a while but I had a hard time justifying that I would actually use it. Like a lot of things (ie: gym membership, new running shoes), I get bored fairly easy when it comes to activity and exercise. There is also that whole depression and anxiety thing I deal with too which is a whole other ballgame for motivation. 

A good friend of mine is moving across the country this summer. She often joined me for hikes and walks. I’m really going to miss being able to get together for an early morning walk with our dogs on the weekends. I’m very happy and supportive of her move but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little bummed out too. 

She is an active user of a Fitbit and I bought one last night so that we can challenge each other. We will still go on walks together, but just in a different way. I never thought this piece of technology would have this kind of connection for people. 

On my first full day, I busted my goal of 8,000 steps with 9,469 steps. I sit at a desk all day and drive to work most days so I was being realistic with my goal. I will keep it at 8,000 for a full week and see what I am trending at and change the goal from there. 

Asha and I on our end of day walk. Four legged motivation.

I am camping this weekend with my friend who is moving. Looking forward to racking up our steps and creating some great memories!
