Do I do the thing now, or should I wait some?

One of the things that I bought myself with my economic stimulus payment was a manual treadmill that fit within my budget. Along with that, I also got a FitBit Versa Lite from someone who happened to be selling their used tracker on eBay for what was an extremely good price, and I didn’t need all of the bells and whistles that would have come with a Versa 2, so I sprung for that. Although it took me a bit of time to get used to the idea of sleeping with something on my wrist, the transition was surprisingly easy… but I’m attributing this to the fact that wearing the Versa Lite feels more like I’m wearing a slightly snug watch than anything else, and prior models of the FitBit didn’t quite feel like that when they were wrapped around my wrist. Coupled with the fact that this also tells me the time and lets me check the weather (which is good for planning when to do things, making sure that it’s not going to rain on those days), I do have to say that I’m actually a fan of the Versa series. On top of that, this one tracks my oxygen saturations at night… and being an asthmatic, why not be aware of those? Especially because I do tend to have nocturnal symptoms of it…

I’m still deliberating when the best time is to start those virtual races that I mentioned here in this, though. Do I want to acclimate to walking on this treadmill to the point that briskly walking a mile is as easy as it’s ever going to get for me, and then start? Or do I want to start now? I’m not sure. I’ll continue to mull it over.
