Hello. Just in case anyone got a Fitbit from Santa or has made a step-related resolution this January, here's a wee reminder that we have our very own Fitbit group. If you have a wonky heart (in any way) and a Fitbit, you can join us at this link - fitbit.com/group/22SDB9
There's a massive variety in how many steps we all manage, so please do join if you think it would motivate or amuse you, no matter how many or how few steps you are doing. (I notice I'm much further down the table than usual at the moment, so I will await your taunts!) We are a friendly and informal group, you can interact (cheer/taunt/message) as much as you like, or not at all - whatever works for you.
I was thinking it would be really good if we could use our group to raise funds for the BHF with some sort of year-long challenge for 2018, especially if it had the added benefit of being something that would motivate us all to walk more. I'm thinking a collective step/distance target might work well, given that we all have different health restrictions to work within. As a group, we've done nearly a quarter of a million steps so far in January, so we could have a very mighty step count by the end of the year... Please leave a comment if you have any ideas about how we could make a motivational fundraiser work. My brain is not allowing me to get beyond what I've said above.
Happy stepping and all the best for 2018, everyone
