Two weeks ago a received the coolest little contraption in the mail…
It’s called a Fitbit.
It is a wireless activity tracker. It tracks your daily steps, stairs climbed, calories burned, and more, allowing you to see exactly how active you are in real-time in your day-to-day activities. The device is a super sensitive 3-D motion sensor that tracks your day down to details a pedometer can’t catch, showing your exact steps taken, calories burned, and distance traveled.
It can also track how many floors you’ve climbed, encouraging you to take the stairs at home or work, or climb a little further on your next hike.
The Fitbit Tracker can even track your sleep patterns so that you know both how long and how well you sleep. The first night I wore it… it showed that I woke up 11 times!
You can check your real-time stats at any time with a glance at the device. Switch between steps, distance, calories burned, and floors climbed with just one button.
Unlike other bulky pedometers, the Fitbit Tracker is light and small enough to wear all day without being noticeable.
Ladies, you can even clip it to your bra!
The device will also allow you to log your food consumption and workout routines.
But, I like MyFitness Pal.com. It’s a free online service that helps you track your food intake and exercise. It’s incredibly simple to use.
By syncing your Fitbit tracker to your MyFitnessPal account, all of the data tracked by your Fitbit will be synchronized with your MyFitnessPal account. Your daily calorie budget will automatically be adjusted to take into account your activity level as measured by your Fitbit. Combined with Fitbit, MyFitnessPal becomes an even more effective way to reach your fitness and weight loss goals.
