1 You

Twas 1 nights before Christmas, when all through the land
Not a person was exercising, no workouts were planned.
The ham was carved, candy eaten without care,
10 pounds later we complain life isn’t fair.

This holiday season, before you snuggle into your bed,
Make sure to have a Holiday plan in your head.
Fitdigits is sharing the year’s best fitness tips,
To help you avoid adding winter weight to your hips.

1st Day- 1 You

The world is big.

Ground breaking news I know. But think about the vastness of Earth. This third rock from the sun has over 7.1 billion people. That is Billion with a capitol B. For those of you who are not math whizzes, in my scientific opinion that is a whole lot of people.

Below you will find a square full of dots. Each smaller square has 100 dots, and in total you have 10,000 dots. Think of each dot as representing a person.

10,000 dots

You would have to line up 700,000 of the images above to represent the world population. 700,000! Just thinking of the vastness of this world we occupy can make anyone feel pretty small.

I would argue the opposite.

In a world of 7 billion people, there is only one you. There is only one person with your thoughts, feelings, actions, lifestyle and mannerisms. Only one person who has inside jokes with your friends and family. Only one person who has gone through the unique set of circumstances that has made you the person you are today. Only one person with the ability to shape the world around you.

This should make you feel pretty powerful. Like there is nothing you can’t do. You are the lone representative of you, in a world of billions, and are capable of doing anything and everything you set your mind to.

Change starts with you. There is no trick. No fad diets. No 7 minute workouts. We have spent the last 11 days detailing ways to help you on your journey, but it is just that, your journey. Be the change you want to be.

And, oh yeah- MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Change Your Fitdigits Activity Type

You wake up groggy in the morning and rub your eyes, symbolically wiping your slate clean and leaving the zen like trance the stranglehold of sleep has put you in. Breakfast is a Banana this morning, as you are eager to get in some exercise before you join the relentless machine that is your job. With your deadline coming up you know you will have to stay late, and the chances of you working out after work are about as big as a super-model’s waistline. You lace up your shoes, ready to attack with vigor your morning run. You grab your iPhone to track your workout with everybody’s favorite and fabulous fitness app, Fitdigits, put on your heart rate belt and quickly tap Quickstart. Ah, the simplicity of a morning run.

3 miles and a personal record later, you arrive home sweating and eager to take a look at your Fitdigits workout results. However, the post-workout bliss that had enthralled your very being slowly turns to frustration, as it appears that in your haste to get going you chose Bike as your workout type instead of run. Does this mean your personal best will forever have an asterisk next to it?

Not anymore.
