I am slightly Type-A when it comes to most things in my life. I need organization and analytics and details around me more often than not, or I start to get a little jumpy. And when it comes to diet and fitness, there's really no exception.
So, when my husband gave me a Fitbit for my birthday a couple of years ago, I kind of loved it. (And I guess getting excited over the gifting of a glorified pedometer by your husband is how you know you've either been together for too long, or you're just getting old.) The Fitbit itself monitors my steps and activity levels, as well as my sleep patterns, while the corresponding website includes a weight tracker and food journal. And now that they've added a mobile website and an iPhone app to the list, it's even easier for me to track what I've done through the day.
Not that I always do, sadly, because those holiday Double Stuff Oreos tend to multiply as they are going into my mouth, and I lose count from time to time, but, still, I like the app when I get around to using it.
At least it will help me work off those Oreos when the holidays are over ... right?
