This year’s Christmas with the family was extra special.  In year’s past I just went along with the family events feeling bad about myself but this year I enjoyed every moment.  Opening gifts with the family, hosting Christmas Eve and seeing extended family has been so enjoyable.  I’m not sure if it’s my age or just feeling better all around.

One gift I wanted to share with you is the new FitBit Force.  I like to refer to it as my smart bracelet that monitors what I do 24 hours a day for steps taken, calories burned, miles traveled and even my sleep patterns.  It’s easy to wear and light enough to not even notice I’m wearing it.  Most importantly it’s a good reminder to hit 10,000 steps a day.

The FitBit Force can sync up with your computer and/or with your Smartphone.  Download in your App Store and get your stats on the go.  One stat in particular that’s cool is my sleep patterns.  Set you FitBit when you are in bed and then shut it off when you wake up.  Your results will quickly sync up to your App to view the results.  Here are two of mine:




As the nights go on I’ll see more results and will be able to compare.  So far I’ve discovered my sleep is less restless if I drink!
