Here we are, 28 days after I started the Body Media Fit and Me Challenge. There was about six days that I didn’t wear the Body Media. Aside from that week, it’s been on my left arm, doing its thing and encouraging me to keep moving.
I am loving the fact that I can view my activity on the BodyMedia Display Clip, easily without interrupting my day. Body Media also makes it easy to connect the armband to the computer at anytime to read my results and view charts. These easy-to-read graphs shows everything I need to stay on track and work on my weight.
This month I feel comfortable enough knowing what my body does and how it responds to activity and I’m going to give the food entry a whirl. Journaling is not my strong point, but I’m ready for the challenge. Besides, Body Media Fit has a database of more than 30,000 items and does all the math for me with the calorie consumption calculator. It might be just what I need!
The graphs make it easy to see a day, a week, two weeks, three weeks or 28 days at a glance. Here is my chart for my first 28 days…
My greatest compliment to Body Media Fit is that it has encouraged me to keep moving. Li’l Man and I have started walking in the morning and I have been enjoying this. The walk gets my moderate activity goal out of the way and my steps goal reached. Then everything from that point on is bonus! It’s a great way to start the day!
I also love that I am no longer an “average”. I read somewhere that a 30 minute walk burns between 75 and 100 calories. There’s a big difference there…25 calories. With Body Media I can see exactly how many calories my body is burning per minute (it ranges from 1.2-6.8 calories per minute). I can see, at a glance, how many calories my body has burned at any point in the day–it doesn’t always stop me from eating the cake, but it reminds me that I need to do more to get it from sticking to my hips!
I have been given the BodyMedia Fit kit in order to facilitate an honest review. No other compensation will be received. The opinons are my own and are not influenced by the sponsor. Others experiences may vary.
