I never said you were a cheater nor did I confess to the act myself.
But a 5000 step goal can seem like too steep a mountain to climb, let alone the weight loss recommendation of 10,000. Lean and fit people don’t need a fitbit reminder to achieve. Those of us who’ve recently vacationed don’t need a fitbit to nudge us, either. Our waistbands, mirrors, and scales prompt us to remove our pudge.
BTW. Applause, please. I’ve lost the weight gained in a foray among family and friends in Indiana several weeks ago. My husband and I nourished our souls with spirited conversation, fried foods of every variety, wine, and beer and more. Gosh, it was good. We had the time of our lives and the pounds to prove it. Love = food in the Midwest.
We writers tend to be sedentary and set in our ways. We also have creative, thoughtful, and inventive ways to preserve good esteem and health. Ladies and Gents, may I present (drum roll, please) fitbit Life Hacks:
- attach it to the cocktail shaker at a very busy local bar
- strap it to your shoe and shake a leg while seated, especially while sipping a glass of champagne
- wear it as you travel a bumpy road, such as the windy, pebbled road up Pike’s Peak or over the dunes in the desert
- affix it to your dog’s collar and send him out to the backyard to cavort
- tape it to a Hula Hoop found in the garage loft and give it to your three-year-old granddaughter when you babysit
So, there you have it: cutesy entertainment and a young lady who knows when to quit.
And you have my newly-unveiled Fake Out version of a Workout chronicled by fitbit… what methods can you add to the list?
