In my aim of losing weight to get on the IVF waiting list, I’ve been trying to up my amount exercise and have been doing this mainly by walking a lot more than I would normally do. Having the dog really helps with this as even if it’s raining I know if it’s my day for walking I need to take him out.

I decided though that I would like some more motivation and seen some people talking about a Fitbit and thought it would motivate me.

There is a great app for your phone which will give you all the data so once you have your Fitbit in place you don’t need to touch it during the day.

Currently I’m starting lower with a target of 8000 steps and around 3.5 miles per day if I can manage it.

I’m finding it’s really helping me to be more motivated to walk during the day and have already found myself parking the car further away from where I need to go to grab some extra steps!
