I fell off the workout wagon once again, and actually became more sedentary than I’m happy with. I was also not happy with what the aging process what doing to my body.
When I was offered the Jawbone Up from Best Buy, I was thrilled. It really makes me accountable for my actions, or lack thereof as the case may be.
I had a heart rate monitor in the past, but my toddler ran off with my chest band, and I have no idea where he put it, so I can’t use that anymore.
You wear the Jawbone UP on your wrist at all times, so I don’t have to worry about a certain little two year old stealing it.
I realized within 24 hours of first putting on, just how bad my habits had become. Seeing actual numbers and knowing how active I should be, was oddly inspiring. Sure, at first it was a bit discouraging, but it motivated me to do better each day.
Luckily, the Jawbone UP can be worn in the shower, so I get credit for my shower dances!
I love being able to sync it with my smart phone. I learn how active I am. I input what I eat and drink into my phone, and it tells me how many calories I’ve consumed, how many calories I’ve burned, and all sorts of great nutritional info.
The feature I love is that it also monitors my sleep. It tells me how long it took me to fall asleep, how many times I wake during the night, and even how much deep sleep, and light sleep I’m getting. As someone who has struggled with many sleep issues, this information is valuable to me.
Wearing the Jawbone Up has made me so aware of my body, and helped me make positive changes.
It has an amazing battery, that lasts about 10 days. It charges super fast, and as I discovered tonight, it sends a notification to my phone when my charge is getting low as a reminder.
I really do love my Jawbone UP. Even my 9 year old thinks it’s cool, and loves seeing my daily stats. He actually debated buying one with his birthday money!
