Lost my Fitbit - My Actifit Report Card: July 16 2019


Today was so dumb. I worked until like 7:30. Most of the family was tied up and I had a ton of work to do. But then I needed to get exercise and run errands so I hopped out onto the trail.

And here I pause my lost Fitbit story (which — spoiler alert — has a good plot and an interesting ending) to write the #TreeTuesday portion of this post. See, here in Minnesota, most trees are only pretty for a select few months of the year, and therefore I really need to take note of their beauty while I can. If you don’t know about #TreeTuesday, check out the tag, which is hosted by the venerable @old-guy-photos.

The trails here are typically canopied with lush growth from deciduous trees, which is just lovely on a hot day.




So, here’s the rest of the story. After my walk I realized my Fitbit battery was low again. So I plugged it into the usb charger in the car. My kid who is working as a camp counselor wanted me to bring him some snacks. So I headed to a grocery on the way. The camp is not far from where we live.

Meanwhile, another one of my kids is dealing with life stuff and an on-again, off again relationship issues. We ended up chatting on the phone for a fairly lengthy drive on the freeway, and then the my whole shopping trip, checkout, and drive to the camp. (Note that I had removed the Fitbit from the charger and taken it into the store with me because of course I wanted to get my shopping steps!)

Then I drove home and realized my Fitbit was missing. I checked my purse and the car and then checked both again. Finally I called the store. It had not been turned in. What had I done? I was pretty sure I had either left it on a shelf or in my shopping cart. So I went all the way back — a 15 minute drive.

When I got there a guy was collecting all the carts from the parking lot and they were getting ready to close the store. He had not seen my FitBit. I tried to glance through a few carts but it seemed hopeless. The number of carts he was handling was enormous. I estimate about 60-70 carts.

I checked with the guest services people again. The customer service lady just had me put my name and number on a piece of paper, which instantly made me think of something she might subsequently flush down the toilet.

So I left. Or rather, I headed for the exit in squared shoulders and long strides that might suggest giving in, letting go and defeat. And then, at the last second, I turned. I looked at the sea of red carts, all of which could have been harboring my FitBit. I walked up to one at the very end of a long row of carts, looked in, and there it was. My FitBit!!!

So I have it back. I can carry on with my Fitbit adventures and daily Actifit goals without disruption.

Lucky you!

Thanks for reading, friends!

Beth broke hers.. well the battery anyway.. I've told her to buy a new one.. several times.. but you know women.. they just don't listen 😂😉👍 !tip


She probably doesn’t want to spend the money. These darn things aren’t cheap! Thanks so much for the tip, my friend!

I'm glad you found your Fitbit! I put in my pocket when I'm shopping because it undercounts steps when I'm pushing the shopping cart.


Awesome idea! I’ve been trying to push the shopping cart with one hand all this time, so I can move the Fitbit arm like normal.


Lol, it is difficult to push the cart with one hand, I tried that too. It seemed as if every time I tried it I picked the cart that was difficult to push and veered to one side.


Yes they do that! And I hate it when I hit a giant display of melons. 😆

I'm glad you got your Fitbit back. Nice job on the 7k.

Oh yes, I was already trying to figure out which piggy bank to raid to buy the next one!
