Well, this time I’m going to talk about a fantastic way to not only find health, but to maintain or even lose weight! I love to help provide additional resources!
With today’s medication for mental health, its difficult to find a balance on weight.
I’m going to tell you about a fun way to do so (no gimmicks), and where you can get a fitbit.
Fitbit comes in two forms as a watch like band for your wrist or a clip on to your garments or under garments.
There website is www.fitbit.com there twitter is @fitbit incase you would like to check them out!
Fitbit also has a companion app available on all OS’s , Windows Phone, Android, and iPhone.
Now let’s get down to the nitty-gritty!
Fitbit is a tracker. It tracks several helpful things. For example: Calories you ingested, calories you’ve burned, stairs climbed, miles you’ve traveled, and greatly important to those who’s sleep patterns are affected by there disorder….it tracks your sleep patterns!
As you know I have Type I Bipolar disorder, so being able to track my sleep patterns is quintessential.
Another great benefit to Fitbit is you can log in the foods you’ve eaten, and how much water you’ve drunk.
There is a setting available for you to set your goals. For example: 10,000 steps, 64 oz. of water a day, 1200 calorie diet, etc.
With every goal you set you have an accomplishment, you will earn a badge for meeting that goal!
It’s really a fun way to track so much important stuff in your day-to-day!
The Fitbit is set on Bluetooth so syncing is a breeze. Either to your home computer or your companion app.
The Fitbit also has a clock, set to your specific region, and works as an alarm (vibrates) to wake you up.
Believe it or not, this little device is the easiest to manage, control, and set!
I have the Fitbit One, and don’t know how I ever got along without it! I wear it everyday, and it has encouraged me to exercise a bit more. I find knowing how many steps I’ve taken and how many I’ve set as a goal, makes me more likely to move a little more to accomplish those goals!
Another great feature is you can share your accomplishments via social media. You can also search for other friends who have a Fitbit and work together!
I walk on my treadmill about 30 minutes, 5-days a week. It’s fun to watch the counter move with each step I take!
It is pretty darn accurate, I’m impressed! I have had many, many counters. But none as comprehensive or as accurate as the Fitbit.
Fitbit is available in many retailers. For example: AT&T stores, Verizon stores, Apple stores, Best Buy stores, Target stores, Radio Shack, Amazon.com, Fitbit.com, and REI stores.
They range in price from $59.95 to $99.95.
