What can I say – technology is not my friend. Oh sure, I mange to publish this blog and I recently mastered taking a screen shot on my computer and saving it, but a technology wiz I am not.
In spite of this, I have manged to use and enjoy my Fitbit with few problem. I don’t use any of the fancy features, I just clip it on and check it every once in a while to make sure I am getting a decent amount of steps in.
I was quite distressed on Monday when it told me at the end of the day I had walked less than 3000 steps. Oh no! What a slug I was that day. Then, at the end of the next day I found the same thing – another sub 3000 step day. I had even walked around Target and done a little housework. Usually I just have to got to the bathroom a few times and do some housework and I can get 5000 steps in on any given day.
But yesterday was the worst. I looked at my Fitbit about 8 pm and it said I only had 1771 steps. Good grief! I decided that my concerns about the upcoming election must have have made me a slug, sitting at the computer all day. Well, it was time to get this craziness under control! I dragged Hubby off for a walk and we synchronized our Fitbits before we went, just to make sure my Fitbit was working OK. We already know that the walk we took is about 1300 steps. But when we got back my Fitbit said I had only walked 77 steps! Ah ha! My Fitbit wasn’t working right!
Oh, wait….there was a tiny little flame next to that number…it was calories, not steps….I had been looking at the calories burned screen all week! As for my steps, they were fine, especially since I took that little walk!
Once again, Technology scores while the dumb human at least got an extra walk in!
