On my arm that is. I am sporting a Fitbit!
To say I am enamored with my Fitbit is an understatement.
Of course I am telling anyone who will listen ~ Oh my God you have got to get one of these!
And a few have.
Which leads me to a dilemma, competition.
One friend challenged me to walk 15k steps a day.
That started yesterday.
And I was hoodwinked.
This said “friend” works at a hospital and is on her feet all day!
Cheat much? hahaha
Actually, it got me of my duff.
By the time I got home from my desk job, I had logged about 12,500 steps.
So I went walking once I got home until I got really, really hungry.
I came back knowing that I had not reached my 15k goal because my bracelet wasn’t buzzing and lights weren’t flashing.
I sat down. I had logged 14,705 steps.
And then I thought ~ Oh hell no, I am not stopping now!
Out the door I went again until my bracelet was buzzing and lights were flashing and I was grinning and dancing a jig ~ I did it. I did it. I freaking, flipping did it!
Now mid-day yesterday, another “friend” challenged me and another gal to a Workweek Hustle aka let’s see who can walk the most steps Monday through Friday.
Now these chicks have a sit down job too, but holy crap, they are either very active or very competitive!
Talk about neck and neck.
I am only 751 steps ahead of them in this moment in time and that is only because they are currently sleeping.
At 3:36am the message for all of us to see read: Lisa pulled past Maria for first place! Woo hoo!! (The woo hoo part is me).
Yes, I was up at 3:36am because I couldn’t sleep.
And yes, I am not above getting in steps while others sleep. hahaha
So the moral of the story is be careful about who you call friends.
They may in fact just be people who will help you get off your duff and get in shape.
Oh, and one of these so-called friends of mine, she wants us to climb seven flights of stairs today.
With friends like these, who needs enemies.
