Readers workouts

David and Amber got me the Fitbit I wanted for Christmas. So far, I’ve learned so far is that it’s really hard to get in 10,000 steps a day. I’ve only made it once, but it has been busy with holiday stuff and feeling a little under the weather yesterday. I don’t even want to think about all the cookies and candy I’ve eaten either.


The new year starts Thursday, which is as good a time as any to get back on track. If I can make it to the gym/run outside three times a week, I’ll be happy.

Two fitnessy goals for the new year: Move more. Eat less pasta and more veggies. (Seems like those are always my goals.)

Thanks to Joy at Joy’s Book Blog for hosting Readers’ Workouts.


  1. I didn’t like my Fitbit Force. It was tracking every move I made, even just lifting my arm a bit. I’m thinking about getting a Moov because you can put it on your shoe if you’re walking, or on your arm if your playing tennis etc.

    Good luck meeting your goals for 2-15!

    My FitBit One is working well for me. I’m surprised what it takes to get to 10,000 steps, too. For me a 40-minute walk, by itself, won’t do it! I only get there if I also do some other big project — shopping or cleaning house or something like that.
