Still having Fitbit issues.
As a fashion accessory, I love it. It’s chic, it’s purple, and it’s mine.
As a toy, it’s fantastic. I push the button and I get all sorts of data. Heaven.
As a tracker of calories, I’m pretty sure we have a colossal #Fail.
I am what you might call “an active person.” For example, yesterday I did all sorts of physically active things.
I sat. I stood. I walked. I wandered. I showered. I sat some more. I baked. I ate. I drank. I watched TV. I ate some more. I walked the Puppy. I wrote. I read what I wrote. I read things I didn’t write. I cleaned (not really). I sorted. I tracked. I went to the gym. I worked out. I texted. I telephoned. I washed the Puppy. I glared. I growled. I grimaced. I grinned. I coffeed. I calculated. I computed.
In short, I used a lot of verbs.
According to my highly scientific assessment and calculations, I burned 4,827 calories yesterday. According to my Fitbit, I burned 62.
Just kidding. My Fitbit said I burned 1,628 calories.
Either way, do you see my problem? There is a HUGE discrepancy!
I prefer my methodology to Fitbit’s algorithm.
No, that’s not exactly true. I don’t really care which method we use. I just like my answer better.
According to my logic, I lost 8 pounds yesterday. According to my scale, I need to wear stretchy-waist pants.
Which means my scale and my Fitbit are in cahoots.
If those two little devices are collaborating, we are in really big trouble.
But being a generous kind of girl, I’m giving my Fitbit another chance.
