I love technology, especially when it keeps me healthy. I had the Fitbit sitting in my Amazon Wish List for more than a year now, & when I saw the opportunity to get it cheap on Craigslist, I jumped on the opportunity to finally pick one up. For the curious, the Fitbit is a glorified pedometer. A cool looking pedometer, I must say.
I got the chance to put it through its paces. A few Fridays ago, I ran another photo booth session at church & was curious to see how much exercise I can get in one of these usually super busy days. People who have visited my booths know that it’s not easy work. Though extremely satisfying, it requires much running around & maintaining energy for hours on end.
The photo at the top of this post is a screenshot of that day’s efforts on my feet in data & graph form. Many calories were burned & many miles were walked. This was even on a day where I didn’t have time for my daily hour workout, which usually helps yield about 12,000 steps per day on average. I’d prefer to get my exercise this way than on a treadmill.
Friends & family: please hire me for many photo booth sessions! My health depends on it!
