I wanted to know if the FitBit would record my 'steps'/exercise while I was on the exercycle.
So, I did 5 minutes on the exercycle with the FitBit on my wrist. It did not register a single step.
So then I put the FitBit down in my sneaker, and did another 5 minutes on the exercycle. It did not register a single step AGAIN.
Obviously there was not enough motion to activate it.
So then I pinned the FitBit to the top of my knee, and did another 5 minutes on the exercycle. YAAA... success! It recorded my motion at steps.
So, now I want to see if it registers while I'm on the cross trainer!
My goal yesterday was 6,000 steps. By the end of the day I had done 8,800+ steps! I am really happy with that.
Today my goal is 7,000 steps.
I'm not going to be as busy as I was yesterday, so I will have to get on the treadmill and cross trainer to get those numbers up.
I don't mind though. This FitBit thingee is certainly motivating me to get more active. It's GREAT!
I know I'm still recovering from the flu, but every day I feel more energetic and well. I will have kicked it in the butt by the end of the week... just got that lingering cough still.
So has Stew, but he's much better now too.
Well... I don't have any plans for today really. I will get some exercise in, then do some housework... there's 2-3 loads of washing to be done and that's about all.
If it's not too cold in the garage I might even make a start on another block for my latest quilt too.
I've had some 'news'. Nothing to do with the house sale or anyone else. My day has gone to utter crap.
I'm not up to talking about it yet as I don't have enough information yet.
Just know it's rocked me for six.
Just sitting here feeling a bit ill and massively stressed out.
I will share when I can.
I don't think I will be doing much else today, even doing some exercise has gone out the window.
I've been wallowing. Playing on the computer, watching TV etc.
Now I feel like doing something!
I'm going to get me sneakers on and get on the treadmill and exercycle.... while putting washing through the drier to air.
There is bugger all on the TV right now, so now is the time. And I need to get my steps up to at least 6,000 for the day!
ONWARD and all that.
End of Day: I've done good... 15 minutes on the treadmill and 10 minutes on the exercycle. Very happy I did that.
