11 Moments Every Fitbit Addict Experiences

Honestly, the first day that I got my Fitbit was one of the best days of my life. I couldn’t wait to open it up, program it, and start tracking my steps. Since then, Audrey (yes, I named my Fitbit) and I have bonded. We’ve walked many a mile, and here are eleven moments that we’ve shared together, and I know other Fitbit addicts have experienced, too.

1. You have that initial moment when you realize just how amazing your Fitbit is and how much it can do.

You track my steps, my sleep, the times that I’m restless, my heart rate, my active minutes and my calories burned? I love you.

2. Oh, and then there's that moment when you're struggling to reach that 10K step goal.

Almost... there... so... many... steps... The desperation is real.

3. We all know the horror of leaving your Fitbit at home or it dying on you during the day.

RIP all of those steps that were never tracked. RIP goals. RIP badge that I'm sure I would have gotten.

4. How about that moment when you're actively tracking your steps and watching the tracker at that time?

You want to see that step count increase quicker so you start walking faster and end up running. The faster I go, the closer I am to my goal, right?

5. A special shout out to all of those people that cheer me on through the Fitbit app.

Bless you. You're the real MVP. You have no idea how much I needed your encouragement that you sent by tapping that one button.

6. Think of all of the friendships that have been strengthened because of your mutual Fitbit addiction.

You have a Fitbit? Add me as a friend so that I can keep up with how many steps that you take and cheer you on in your pursuit of a healthier life.

7. We all know the feeling of that glorious moment when you get a new badge!

That was one of your biggest accomplishments this week! Go reward yourself. You deserve it!

8. There's that moment when you know that you didn't get enough sleep and your Fitbit sleep tracker just reminds you of how bad your sleeping habits are.

I love you, but do you have to remind me of my flaws?

9. Remember that time when your first Fitbit alarm scared you half to death?

It scares you when you forget about it, but thank you to the person that created a silent alarm.

10. We've all had that moment when we've tried to so hard to reach our step goal.

Admit it, you've ended up like this before:

11. At the end of the day, you and your Fitbit have been through a lot together and you two are inseparable.

...except for the time when you go to take a shower.

P.S. I love you, Audrey. Thanks for always stickin' by my side and pushing me to be a better, healthier person.

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
