  • Just when the 30 day challenge started I accidentally washed my Fitbit Ultra. After allowing it to dry out for a week, I put it back on it’s charger, and much to my surprise it has begun working fine again. After 2 years though, the case is falling apart, but that week without my Fitbit, I was really lost! It’s a great product and really keeps me motivated to keep moving.

  • well I am going cycling for an hr with friends this afternoon, based on my weight and speed, I will burn about 1000 calories in that hour :)

  • I didn’t get the opportunity to review Day 8 blog until just now. Not too long ago, I moved some boxes out of storage and found some weights, belts, and a calorie counting jump rope….still in the box. Needless to say, the battery was dead. What’s nice about low tech is I can still jump rope without the battery :) I haven’t jumped rope is several years, but I managed to wear myself out for about 10 minutes. Despite myself, I completed the challenge. Nice feeling.

  • Interesting about the stairs! I always run up and down the stairs in my house during the work day (I tend to take breaks to do laundry, etc.) – great to know that I am burning “real” calories.

  • Dancing my butt off with Just Dance 3 Sweatin’ setting for 15 min during morning break…and it wakes me up and puts me in a good mood!
