It has been 13 days since I started this blog and its been 8 days since I’ve had my fitbit.

Update: 30 Day Kettle bell challenge
Its been about 2 weeks since I’ve started the challenge. The first week I did it for 2 days and the 2nd week I did it 3 days for 3 reps. While I only completed 1, 2, & 4 with very light weights it was still intense. My goal this week is to try to add a lil more weight and do it at least three times in addition to my usual 45 min walks.

Update: Fitbit Force
I love my fitbit force despite the recall. I have not had a reaction to the band though I’ve only  had it for a week.  It has made me more active and has made me realize that I have not been burning as many calories as I thought I was. On a typical day I was lucky to burn 1500 calories while I ate just under that. Now with the fitbit I work towards burning 2000, which for me is about 18k steps! For anyone that has debated getting a fitbit I say go for it! It will help you get to your goal weight. In one week I am now down a lb! Today we took a hike then did some workouts at home. Here’s an awesome screen shot of what it tracks.

My love likes motivational posters in our home gym; I picked that one out “You will not enjoy this”
