My addiction.

I realize I never got back into blogging. Life has been insanely busy, yet absolutely wonderful! Can't wait to catch you all up, very soon. However, there is something I want to post about.. my Fitbit addiction.

I got a Fitbit for Christmas, I was excited to get back into working out. Then I quickly realized that you can add friends on Fitbit and compete with them. Daily, weekly and weekend challenges. All of a sudden, I was addicted to being competitive with my steps.



Then my amazing boyfriend decided to get me a treadmill so we could workout together at home, or so I could run while he was working on the new house or if he was at work or school. So the first night on my treadmill I was so excited about all of my steps.



Then.. I started getting him involved in cheering me on so I could beat everyone I was competing with. He even would walk or run with me. Even if it meant we were going to run in place while watching Marriage Bootcamp.. Yes, we love the show.. blame it on my (and his previous) major.



I begged him to get a Fitbit. It wasn't until I told him I was going to buy him one that he decided to buy one that same day. I was excited.. until I realized that he never stops moving and is constantly ahead of me or just a few steps behind.

My mom is always in first place, so I pretty much know that no matter how many steps I get.. she'll be at the gym for an extra hour or more just trying to get so far ahead no one can beat her. I've caught myself multiple times telling my boyfriend to stop walking around the house and just slide... Yes, crazy to think that I begged him to get one.

Not only can you compete with others, you compete with yourself to get to your daily goals. You also get to a point that you're making secret goals in your head and get determined to beat them before midnight.

I haven't been posting much on social media, but I have been occasionally posting Fitbit related things on Instagram. So next time I beat my highest steps, I'll be sure to post. Feel free to follow me username: Mandyshippe

Also, if you have a Fitbit and want to join in on challenges feel free to add me!

No, this post was not in anyway sponsored by Fitbit or anyone else. I do however envy anyone who was able to write a sponsored post by Fitbit. Lucky bitches. 

Well, it's time to get back to my addiction.. Happy stepping!
