After having one, not having one, to having one again; I am here to say that anything that helps you to get more movement into your life is a good thing.
Over the past few years I have continued to slowly gain weight and kept thinking that it must have something to do with hormones and being over 40. Then I began to really think about what I do in a day. I teach 2-4 fitness classes each day, which is the same or more than I used to
now I come home, get on my computer and work. I also make dinner, clean the house, and spend my free time reading. I no longer change diapers, chase after my toddlers, rock a crying child on my hip, get each and every child their snack, their water, help wipe bottoms, walk down to the park, or all the other various things I used to do when my kids were at home and needed my help with everything!
And now that I have a fitness tracker again, I can actually see how much this has made a difference in my movement throughout the day. I used to easily get 12,000 steps a day; now I'm having to not only teach my fitness classes, but also go for a walk or run, take some time to play with my kids, or get an extra workout in just to hit 10,000 steps. (what an eye opener!)
If your goal is to lose weight and get more movement in, in a day, then I highly recommend getting and using your fitness tracker. It might not be completely accurate but if you are working hard to get 10,000 steps in each and every day along with the other healthy habits that are recommended you will begin to notice a difference.
