So I did it. Adam and I both have succumbed to the FitBit craze. I am now on day three. I know, I am so new to this that my opinion may not be on point but here has been my experience so far….
I walked my dog way longer than I normally do (to get some extra steps in) so I was happy and so was the dog. I did not have one drink of coffee (1st time in 2 years – in truth, I didn’t even notice until the end of the day that I hadn’t had any coffee). I made better choices with food all throughout the day and was hyper aware of how great I felt with no coffee and better food choices at the end of the day. Made sure that I drank the recommended amount of water. I did go over my calorie allotment for the day but not by much. Also it was day one – so really, I didn’t expect to hit everything they asked for on day one. Overall pretty good experience.
I had 1/2 of a latte instead of an entire serving (once I had the latte, I didn’t really even want all of it – I don’t think I will go back for some tomorrow – I actually wasn’t that interested). I made better food choices at all meals today and reduced snacking considerably by hitting my daily water target. They recommend hitting 10,000 steps each day. I almost hit 10,000 steps by the time I went home from work because I forced my self to take walks when I needed a work break instead of snacks. (even more fortunate – I was able to swing into a store an pick up some of things on my “To Do” list while taking a quick break). I hit my calorie intake allotment today. In fact I was under allotment and I didn’t feel like I was missing out or that I needed to eat more. I was honestly comfortable all day.
BOOM. This thing works!
Note: My caffeine intake has been unreasonably high for the last few years and I was really starting to feel jittery and anxious for no reason. 2 days of fitbit and a significant amount of daily anxiety has been relieved. If that is all this does than it has already won in my book!
