“Use this The Fitbit Flex 2™, you’ll love this swim-proof fitness wristband.” they said.
I was doubtful, hence I begin to google about it.
so, WHY FITBIT?
“Every moment matters and every bit makes a big impact. Because fitness is the sum of your life.
That’s the idea Fitbit was built on—that -fitness is not just about gym time. It’s all the time. How you spend your day determines when you reach your goals. And seeing your progress helps you see what’s possible. Seek it, crave it, live it”
I couldn’t agree more that fitness is more than gym, it should be a lifestyle.
Then, I am sold.
Fitbit tracks every part of your day—including activity, exercise, food, weight and sleep
—to help you find your fit, stay motivated, and see how small steps make a big impact.
Well, if you’re serious about getting fit this #2017.
You will definitely need a Fitbit.
Here’s how Fitbit helps me in my fitness goal:
#1 It “MOVES” me.
Fitbit acts like a motivator in my fitness journey.
Instead of going up to the 7th floor by lift, I find myself taking extra effort to walk up the stairs so I can meet my goals. Also, at times I purposely park my car a little further in the mall do that I could walk more. Since I got my Flex 2, I started to walk more (& burn more calories).
I also use my FitBit to track my exercise, especially when I am on my “1000 calories deficit diet”, I literally need to burn to eat (otherwise I will be left with 300 calories a day, which is equivalent to only 1 roti kosong =.=). Fitbit by default can track walking, running and hiking. But, it also has an option to log exercises. If I do an hour on high intensity Body Combat, the app will tell me I’ve burn about 450-500 calories. That allowed me to have Nando’s for dinner, at the same time reaching my goal of 1000 calories deficit.
It surely makes me MOVE more, and be more discipline with my workout routine. (:
If you didn’t know, an hour of personal training will help you burn an average of 300 calories. (:
I praised the device’s ability to more accurately track my weightlifting sessions.
#2 It forces me to eat healthier
With Fitbit, I don’t only know how many calories I’ve burned; I also get to know how many calories I am ingesting.
It’s easier for me to keep track on my diet, which made my weight-loss journey a lot easier.
When I am about to order banana fritters during tea-time, which is about 120 calories/piece;
I learned to opt for a cup of black coffee (which is 0 calories instead);
And, instead of a piece of 400 calories roti telur, I chose to order the tandoori chicken (breast) which is about 150 calories.
I’ve also learned that clean & healthy eating doesn’t always means less calories.
Every bite of the food you ingest count!
Fitbit has definitely helped me to be wiser on my food selection.
#3 It encourages quality sleeps
With Fitbit, I am able to track my sleeping hours and sleeps quality.
I needed at least 5 hours of quality sleep a day, it helps me to identify my sleeping pattern. It actually shows that I’ve better sleep after workout (&, some wine. haha); hence I know what I need to do in order to have better, uninterrupted sleep.
#4 It motivates me to swim
Oh yes, Flex 2 is swim-proof for swimmers;
and shower-proof for everyone else.
It is waterproof up to 50 meters, so it’ll track your distance swam, and calories burned there too.
All this is done automatically — as long as the Flex 2 is on you, it’s tracking.
It can even tracks different style of swim, and of course, Butterfly burns the most.
It’s the hardest stroke, but now I am motivated to work on it!
So, I have been wearing #Fitbit for several months now, & totally smitten by it.
Now. It’s your chance to win a Fitbit for yourself!
