My pedometer that came free years ago with a box of cereal (special K I think), broke. The belt clip made of plastic, finally snapped, came free of my belt and hit the flag stones at work. Smashed into about 20 pieces.
One of the cleaners raced to help me pick up the bits. She laughed when helping, "This thing is ancient. Nearly as old as me!!!", (she is 67 and spritely). "Look at this", she said. "I can change the wristbands and when I go home it tells me my heart rate and calories used in the day". Gleefully swishing her wrist around to show that it didnt fall off. "You need to get with this century".
As you can tell by my blog, I am not up on all of the latest gadgets and gizmos. I am missing peoples new blog posts as Blogger has changed the format and I forget to scroll down to click on the link, where before I didnt need to. It would seem I am rather set in my ways and like things that I like.
Now I am unable to ride my bike and I am looking down the slope towards 40, I need even more to be on top of exercise and health. Do you have a Fitbit? Or something similar? Are they worth it? I dont want something that I wear for 2 weeks and then put into a drawer. Would I be better getting another pedometer?
Thoughts please in the comments, I look forward to reading them.
p.s. I ate half a packet of ginger biscuits for breakfast. Not having a kitchen is going to adversely affect my food in take. I normally make overnight oats with almond milk. No fridge and soot still in the air means I dont want to make it... I think I am going to get some porridge and bring it to work.
