I gave up on my fitbit a long time ago. At first, I loved it (especially my sleep data), but after more than a year, it made me feel bad about my life.

In the end, I recognized that the fitbit wasn't a good exercise accountability partner to get me to move more, so into the drawer it went.…Continue

The plan was to find me a good book…Continue
