Beginning of the year is a great time to evaluate your goals. What were you doing that worked? What just made you feel like a failure? Goals (new year resolutions or not) should be obtainable. I bought myself a FitBit Flex from Best Buy to see what I could do to lose that last little bit of weight and get back on track after the holidays and move. With technology being such a big part of all of our lives, the FitBit Flex makes a lot of sense to me!
For me, my goal last year was just to keep moving since the car wreck and to drink more water. I did an awesome job drinking more water (don’t worry I will share how with another review/giveaway later!) However, I wanted to push my body like before the car wreck which didn’t work out so well. I would push myself to the point of pain. Then I would take a long break from working out. As I realized that I was creating a system where I felt like a failure. I decided to just get moving more. Park further away. Walk when I can. Maybe move a little faster but not run. Workout but it doesn’t have to be crazy intense anymore. Backing off motivated me. Finding ways that were convenient worked for me!
With Fitbit Flex, you can track your activity and sleep to be the most efficient!
- For activity: Fitbit Flex tracks your steps, distance, and calories burned. Also, you can set goals and sync your stats wirelessly.
- For sleep: Fitbit Flex measures your quality of sleep. You can even set a silent alarm that helps you wake up without waking up the whole house.

If you use Walgreens Balance Rewards, you should sign up for their Steps program. You earn 20 points per mile. FitBit Flex (and some other devices) can sync with your account. How great is that you don’t have to log any extra info!?!
Convenience is why I decided to try the Fitbit. I thrive on technology and how it makes my life easier. I also like being challenged and motivated the daily reminder on my wrist keeps me accountable. Fitbit Flex syncs with my computer and phone to help make accountability easier. When I looked at similar products, I didn’t like that some had monthly subscription fees for syncing stats. I wanted convenience but didn’t want to regret it with additional fees.
Let’s get this year off to a great start! Enter now to wear your own FitBit Flex!
