Misfit Madness

Everyone these days is familiar with the Fit Bit bands, right?  I have a couple of coworkers who wear them, and some friends who wear them as well.  They seem to really love the Fit Bit, especially now that it can be a watch instead of just a clip.  I’ve checked them out off and on, but was never inspired by them enough to really spend the money on one.  Enter the Misfit Shine.  It’s a little circular disc that runs off of a watch battery, and tracks your activity and sleep patterns.  The really cool part is the disc can be worn on your wrist, clipped to your clothes, shoved in a pocket, or even worn as a pendent.  You sync it to your smartphone, tablet, iPad, etc.  I tend to sync mine 3 times a day to keep up with my steps, and have learned that I average 9500 to 11000 steps a day.  Not too shabby, but there’s some room for improvement.  My favorite part about the Misfit?  It’s waterproof!  My family and I are hoping to move to new place, with easy access to a pool some time next month.  Crazy pregnant in Georgia, in the hot a humid summer months? Bring on some swim time!


Since I procured a Misfit, I have learned that my sleep patterns are utter crap.  I usually get “restful” sleep for an average of 4 hours, and spend the rest of the night tossing and turning.  Last night was a record, with only 2 hours and 48 minutes of restful sleep.  Since it happens to be my day off today, I’m hoping to get a couple hours of nap time in amongst the usual Friday chores and errands.


So right now I’m chilling out, drinking some mighty fine coffee, while laundry washes and I give the stink eye to the vacuum cleaner.  And what’s going through my head?  I wonder how many points I’ll get for de-furring the floor and furniture today?   Happy running y’all!

And PS – We’re having a girl and a boy.
