Weekly Wrap ...May 8th
Hello and welcome to the Weekly Wrap, a link up hosted by HoHo Runs and MissSippiPiddlin!
So, how did our week/weekend go?
Something that is frustrating me this week is my MisFit! I received a free MisFit Fitness tracker because I was participating in a "Step" Challenge at work. Well, as much as I DO like it and I am very thankful that it was given to me for free, I've been having some hiccups with it.
1. When all the dots light up on the device, that is a notification that you have reached your goal for the day (10,000 Steps). I notice that my dots light up (and I think I've reached my goal) but when I check the app, the reality is I'm only between 6,8000 and 8,000 steps. That is very frustrating for me.
2. The second thing that has been frustrating me is that the clip itself is very cheaply made. Shortly after I wrote this post last week, my clip broke. I mentioned that I was thinking about ordering the bracelet for the tracker but decided against it because I like to clip it on my shoe when I ride bike. Well, I received a new clip last Friday, but that only lasted a week. This Friday my new clip broke. I am not hard on this device, I just think the plastic is weak. I am a bit embarrassed to ask for yet a third clip. Thankfully Scott had an extra Fitbit Surge, so I will be wearing that for the remainder of the Fitness Challenge which I believe is another 2 weeks. Besides the fact that the Surge is a little bit too large for my wrist, I am LOVING it! It does SO much! All the info is right on the screen and I don't have to look at any app to see my progress!
How about running?
Well, as you know, I have been taking it easy because of my foot pain (but I won't be dwelling on that anymore as I am hoping I am on my way to healing). For that reason, there was no running for me this week. I may try a short run later this week because I do have the Girls on The Run 5k this coming Saturday. Lacey participated in a 5k on Cinco de Mayo so I can't wait to hear how that went.
Have a happy week all! Has anything frustrated you last week? -M
