OK, y’all I know this sounds rather freaky, but in talking to other users, they say the same thing happened to them when they went on a fast from their fitness trackers. A few weeks ago I wrote a post, I Filed for Separation which was about separating from the control my fitness app had over my daily comings and goings. Well, now I noticed the app on my phone is somehow monitoring my calorie intake, and the other day I got an email that said, in the subject line, “Remember Me? You need to sync your tracker.” What the what? I am getting emails from my inactive fitness tracker?
I am completely done! I feel like I’ve fallen into a SCI-FY Twilight Zone episode, and Rod Serling is about to pop out smoking his cigarette and scare the living crap out of me with messages from beyond, courtesy of my fitness tracker. The whole point in the first place for connecting with this darn thing was to stay focused and remain disciplined in my health and wellness activity and regimen.
Has it gotten to the point where I need to get a restraining order for this doggone thing? I feel like I was in a toxic relationship, but it can’t let go and I may have to resort to extreme circumstances. UGH! 😝 But, my message to my ex-tracker is, “Back down before you get beat down!” And that’s all I have to say about that! (Channeling my inner Forrest Gump)
