Still, if the magazines and blogs are telling me to do it, I want to jump on the bandwagon. Which is why I found myself trolling the aisles of Amazon and Target to no avail for a Fitbit Force . (They are back in stock now! Also, they haven't sponsored this in any way, I just wanted one after much research).
I finally found one at BestBuy, brought it home, and became slightly addicted to the stats it offers me. Time, number of steps, flights of stairs climbed, hours slept etc. Since our house is 5 stories tall, I'm totally rocking the stair climbing metric, but since I'm 7 months pregnant the steps part is harder, since everything in me tells me to sit on the couch eating a donut and watching the Kardashians.
Enter my new fantasy- the treadmill desk. I could blog and read blogs, and online shop and "work".
An actual treadmill desk is costly, so I just added this little computer shelf to my existing treadmill, the SurfShelf Treadmill Desk . It helps me to get to my 10,000 step per day goal, plus if I limit my blogging, and blog reading to the treadmill, I get at least 20 minutes each day, yay!
Note- I'm super scared to track my sleep once baby #4 arrives, so I think I'll take a month or so off from wearing the FitBit to sleep, who can handle that much reality?
