Yesterday was the first day I was wearing my fitbit. After the first day the results have come in. What can I say …? Well I pickup more calories than I burn. This means I’ll have to change a couple of things in my life. I’ll try to increase the number of steps per day. Yesterday was a pretty active day but I only reached 6000 steps. Still 4000 to go / day to reach the 10.000 you have to reach / day.
Tomorrow is the first workday again. Let’s see how many steps I take per day. In general I work behind a computer so it could be disappointing. Luckily I have to talk to a lot of people to get all the necessary information to let the team continue.
Let’s see how fast I can get my weight down again. It went up slowly but steadily the last couple of years. Goals is to lose some KG by the end of the year. The idea is to also put up some fitness material once we have moved to our new house.
I’ll post progress on regular basis. See it as a technological experiment to see if the fitbit actually helps me. Who knows I might even buy the scale.

Nice going! But don’t postpone the fitness stuff, try the scientific 7 minute workout instead – no specific gear needed and it’s quite intense 😉
More information can be found in this NY Times article: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/05/09/the-scientific-7-minute-workout.
There is also a great app on the iPhone to help you time every exercise!
Thanks for the tip. The idea is set a standard by not doing something special the first week. After this I’ll try things in iterations. I’ll try this one as well just to see if it helps.
Did you try it?
