December 16, 2017 by Musings from a Tangled Mind Sharing is Caring Okay, so, don’t ask me how I know this. I’m just sharing a fitness hack I discovered earlier today…something I read, yeah, that’s it. Something I read. Oh, and you’re welcome.

If you eat cake even faster, your fitbit will think you’re flying!
Okay, so maybe I want some of the cake you’re having over there then…either it’s really good or gives you these awesome ideas. Either way, I’m in.
I first read that as “awful” ideas. Interesting how the two words appear to be closely related.
I think it works for chicken wings, too.
Good to know! I’ll have to pass that along.
information ‘from a friend’….
if you use two forks and alternate between them then it thinks you’re on an elliptical so you get exercise credit too. some guy told me that.
Man after my own heart. Thanks for the heads up! 😀 I’ll hit my fitness goals yet.
Who or what is a “fitbit”?
It is an ungodly device that tracks your exercise and activity. From their site: “…measure data such as the number of steps walked, heart rate, quality of sleep, steps climbed, and other personal metrics involved in fitness.”
Does it know to exclude trips to the bathroom or to the coffee shops, restaurants and bars?
Can it even differentiate between the rhythms of various types of activities?
I have no idea, but I would assume its algorithms are pretty sophisticated. I guess the steps to and from everywhere would count as activity, but the food/drinks you consume would be counted against you, since you can keep track of your food intake with it as well.
OMG…we’re lying to machines! :0 Argggggg!
Absolutely! If we can’t lie to ourselves…I mean, our machines, of course, our MACHINES, then who CAN we lie to? Hell, I’d never meet my so-called goals otherwise. LOL
Reblogged this on Its good to be crazy Sometimes and commented:
I like this thinking
OMG… This is hillarious!! I have two colleagues using fitbits and I’ll definately pass the message to them both!! LOL
I just don’t get why normal people would be willing to pay to get told by a machine when to get up and walk. I mean, did we really get to that point, as human beings?
P.S. found your blog through Itsgoodtobecrazysometimes’ link! 🙂
Thank you for reading and commenting! I hope we’ll see you back here again! And I agree, machines are taking over, slowly but surely. Heyyy, didn’t they make a movie about that!?
