I’m totally into the whole fitness tracker thing. I bought a BodyMedia band back in 2010! (Jawbone has since acquired BodyMedia, so they are no more.) Think back to 2010… no one was wearing fitness trackers. The trackers back then had to be worn on your upper arm, so they weren’t exactly descreet. I had multiple people ask me if I “was ok” because they thought something was wrong with me. It’s cool guys… just trying to track my calories here. Of course, back then I literally had to plug the device into my computer. It didn’t sync with a smart phone. Isn’t that crazy? Needless to say, they’ve come a long way.
So here I am, with the FitBit Charge HR! I picked this one because after doing some research (i.e. googling) it seemed like the most accurate and comprehensive tracker out there. I’ve only had it a few days but I’m loving it. It’s so motivating!
If you’ve got a FitBit, add me as a friend (iheartveggiesblog at gmail dot com) and we can challenge & encourage each other! Fitness is more fun with friends 😉
It’s also making me much more aware of how I need to get up and move! I clocked in quite a few steps yesterday:
Alex’s parents are in town for a visit and we walked quite a bit last night. We took them to see an art exhibit of John Lennon’s sketches and then we walked to a nearby brewery in Carytown called Garden Grove.
Once we got back I made this super easy baked ziti for dinner. Clearly, we needed fuel after all those steps!
This recipe is great because you can make it a day ahead so you can spend less time cooking and more time hanging out with the ones you love!
Alright, I’m headed to DC for the day. Cheers to lots of walking!
