Things are winding down here at home, this is the last day of school for my kiddos and next week is my last week of work until September. We have one more lacrosse tournament, a karate tournament, my MIL’s birthday, and Father’s Day. Then it is SUMMER VACATION! I’m hoping to find a couple of 5K races over the summer to keep me moving during the lazy days!
The big news… I upgraded my Fitbit Flex to the Charge HR. I LOVE IT! I like having the added features such as heart rate, automatic sleep mode, and staircase climbs. I also like having the ability to read my steps and other goals right on my wrist, rather than having to get out my phone. The Fitbit and the iOS app that goes with it have really made a difference in my daily movement over the past two months. I’ve even lost a couple more pounds because of it! That’s a good thing, since I’ll be heading on a 2 week vacation at the end of the month!

* After a comment about my timed walking and the number of steps I record, I realized it might be confusing. I track two different goals. The first goal is a timed duration of exercise – moving with the intent to raise my heart rate and get in some cardiovascular work. This is what I’m mean when I say “45 minutes walking.” The second goal is total daily steps. This is from my Fitbit, which measures all steps from 12:00AM – 11:59PM, exercise included. I hope that clarifies my movement data.
