Fitbit, Slugs, and Sloths

Dear Kid,

Don't slander slugs. I took more steps than you did. DearKidLoveMom.comI was a slug on Sunday.

In the past, I would have just assumed I was a slug. Now I have proof positive.

My Fitbit (which I love) made it perfectly clear. It seems I pretty much forgot to move the entire day.

Just to be clear, I was wearing my Fitbit. The entire day. So no way to blame it on forgetting to put it on.

By the time I got to work on Monday, I had more steps than I did the entire day on Sunday.

Then again, our dust dragons took more steps than I did on Sunday. Han Solo took more steps while he was frozen in Carbonite. Our couch took more steps than I did.

BF (Before Fitbit) I would only have been able to guess at the extent of my slugfest. Now I had specific and explicit data to document my slothfulness.

So I had a long conversation with my Fitbit. Fitbit explained (rather succinctly) that slug-ness every now and then wasn’t a bad thing. But please not to make a habit of it.

We didn’t get around to defining “habit.”

Love, Mom


  1. Funny! I wanted one for Xmas, but that didn’t happen. Let me know how you’d hold up. A girl my hubby works with said hers quit working rather quickly.

    • Really? I’ve had mine since early December. The GirlChild and I got them at about the same time, and we both love them. Except she walks 15,000 to 20,000 steps a day and I walk 15 to 20 steps a day…
