Demise of the Fitbit


Until Sunday I had a Fitbit strapped to my arm all of the time, except when it was charging. 

I had used my Fitbit for a couple of years to ensure I maintained a relatively constant level of activity. My job is pretty sedentary and so I like to ensure I get about 10,000 steps per day.

As Chris reminded me, it is pretty easy when I play racquetball or golf to get more than the threshold level of steps. But, many days I need to walk the dogs or do some other activity to keep moving.

Sunday was, however, a dark day for my Fitbit. I am not sure when during the busy day it happened, but my Fitbit fell off my arm, probably when I was taking my coat off. It would be the last time my faithful piece of electronics would fall from my arm. For some reason, Finnegan likes to chew. He chewed my Fitbit before I realized that it had left my arm.

It is gone.

It actually was a two Fitbit weekend for Finnegan, he also chewed Chris's Fitbit--that one he snatched from her nightstand.

Chris has so far talked me out of purchasing a replacement. I am still undecided.

We will have to see how that goes.
