Handsome Bryce gave me a Fitbit in my Easter basket. I have really loved it so far, but I only barely discovered that you can connect with friends who also have Fitbits.

Before discovering this, the goals and prompts from the Fitbit were nice guidelines, but I felt no sense of urgency. They weren't MY goals, they were goals chosen by Fitbit. Once I added my friends EVERYTHING CHANGED.

Now the Fitbit is always sending me little prompts about how I am doing and how my friends are doing, and here's the thing, all my friends are way less lazy than me! The competitive aspect makes it feel more like a sport. In general I am not competitive, but in sports I have a furious desire to win. It has really helped me to push myself a little more and get a lot more out of my Fitbit.

Unfortunately my friends are all super kind and supportive! I can't be motivated to exercise by love and sweetness! I require taunts and threats and badly executed slang!

Do YOU have a Fitbit? Do you want to battle to the death? If the answer is yes, then you should add me.

My super nice friends still beat me; I said I want to win, not that I am actually skilled at winning.
