We have decided to get more fit this year. So we purchased Fitbit activity monitors to help track our progress and motivate us. They seem to be working well so far. Both of us have lost about twenty pounds and our activity levels have greatly increased! Yay! The bonus is that Bodie benefits from this also. He gets daily walks no matter the weather. When you have a huge backyard it is easy to get out of the habit of walking the dog, especially when Bodie does laps around the yard [he monitors the activity on the trail :) ].
