The other day Colby found a new product called the Nike FuelBand. As he started talking about it I started to become more and more curious about it. The idea here is that it measures your activity and converts it to Nike Fuel. As soon as you put the bracelet on it will start logging your activity. When I think about how much I move around during work it is really disappointing. Some times I trick myself and think I did a lot of activity but truthfully I didn’t walk more than an accumulated 20 minutes. That is not near enough activity for anyone. The more we move the more we lose and the more energy we will have. Exercise has to be something we make time for. I get to hear people all day long talk about how ,”they just don’t have time for exercise”. We can all find 30 minutes in our day for exercise. Just add that little quote to the board of excuses. This little band is pretty neat because it doesn’t let you get away with little activity. It will start with red which is no activity or light activity and then move to yellow with more activity and then once you’ve hit green that is your goal. It will let you set your daily goal of activity, so whether you’re training for a marathon or you’re just walking around the block this is an accountability tool that is pretty cool.
