Express Yourself

FitBit Crazed

FitBit Crazed

by Maureen Ucles

 FitBit enthused
A little FitBit Crazed
Okay maybe...
 just plain FitBit craz--y
The elevator doesn't
quite reach the top floor
(I took the steps!)

So FitBit Crazy
Only had it a month
Finding any opportunity
any, any, any-
To make my mark
and the steps
O  the steps, steps, steps 
accumulating steps for 
Fat2FitHQ Group
Gotta be in the top ten!
Bump that!
I only wanna
 win, win, win!

Steppin' out...
with my baby
 round the corner
 into the puddles
on the dance floor
out the exit
into traffic
cross the highway
going to play
step, step, step
anywhere
active minutes!
I need active minutes!
any how I can
'til I sit down and  fall
collapse
I don't care
No problem
no problem
at all

FitBit Craz---y
With my Android App
iPod and desktop too
More like...
FitBit Insane
No cure in sight
goes pretty deep
into my membranes
Mitochondria?
Steps, steps, steps
My plight!
Take flight!

Steps! Steps! Steps!
Give me
more
more
more 
steps!
Parking far
 away from Target
Never in a million years
Now?
My car
Can't see...
Two blocks away!
For what?
Exercise?
Nope!
Need more steps,
steps,
steps
More steps than...
you
him
her
them
Gotta win!
More and more 
Steps!


FitBit bonkers
Insanity squared!
Treadmill  tired!
Shoes a aching!
Dogs a pantin'!
Barefeet with blisters
No for real!
I ain't fakin'!
I need more
steps, steps, steps!

Ten thousand steps daily!
Easy peazy!
No, twelve thousand or more!
Please, please, please!
How about Eighteen thousand?
Can go higher!
Thirty thousand?
I dunno but...
Need more steps!
More steps!
To the moon and back!
Mars?
Pluto?
Planet X?

Syncing
Bluetooth
Blue hurricane
round and round
C'mon!
Work little app, work!
Need more steps!
Did you get that one?
Want to see!
Need to see!
Just how many
steps--
to wash the clothes
make some dinner
clean the house?
Walk to Krogers?
Five miles or so?
Who knows?
Did I mention?
I need more steps!

Limping
Gimping
Slipping
But I....
Can I?
need more steps
steps, steps, steps
Fitbit crazed!
