(at least that’s what I tell myself…)

During my “walk to Rivendell” I used a Fitbit to track my mileage and it definitely helped motivate me to get out and walk more. But I hate wearing things on my wrists plus once the weather got warm I really really hated the sweaty plastic band. So the Fitbit came off.

But I am the sort of person motivated by tracker type things. I kinda wish I was motivated more by just being healthy and less by metric trickery but no… it’s the little silly goals that do it for me.

So I was psyched to hear about a new fitness tracker that is a ring. It was still in the development stages but I signed up for it. And now I’ve had it a few weeks.

I like it. It’s just a plain band and not annoying. Or ugly.

And it motivates me. It tracks steps like the Fitbit but more important it highlights “active minutes”. The goal is 150 “active minutes” a week. The first week I had to work a bit to get those active minutes in but now it’s easy. The software is pretty basic but I’m hopeful it’ll get better with time.

Not sure I’m ready to “walk to Mordor” yet though….
