MOTIVATION. It is hard to believe that such motivation stems from a piece of electronic equipment that is about 2" in length. Nevertheless, it is true.
MOTIVATION. I am logging plenty of 'steps' by bicycling and working out on the elliptical machine. The greatest increase in my activity level, has come from the motivation to log high numbers of steps each day. I have increased my activity level by literally stepping, that is, walking. The later summer weather has been perfect for some long walks.
My daughter has been a particularly good companion on a few of my walks - although I have also gone solo. For example, last night, Saturday evening after dinner by fitbit had recorded 'only' 15000 steps. My daughter and I took a long walk downtown and to Navy Pier and when we returned home my fitbit had recorded an additional 12000 steps. These were 12000 steps that likely would never have occurred without the motivational desire of logging a maximum number of steps for the day. Being active has been very rewarding and very fun. I was a certified couch potato for many years - I prefer my lifestyle now.
