|I went for the lighter blue. It's almost a non-color, so I figure it won't clash with most things.|
Even though I haven't been able to go out and walk just for exercise, I have still found that wearing the Fitbit does have an encouraging effect. In the back of my mind, I think about how getting up out of my chair and walking to the kitchen rather than asking Emma to retrieve an item is going to add steps to my daily total. Given both the slight physical pain and the frustration of doing everything one-handed (because of the cane), it's very helpful to have that added encouraging effect.
It was Jen's post about her Fitbit that made me decide to get one, and even though I'm not terribly mobile yet, I'm really glad I did. Being in constant pain for several years is a great way to work yourself into a really sedentary lifestyle. I think the Fitbit will help me change those habits and help my overall health.
