Fitter #2017, with #FitBit

“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!

  • Hi Tzia,

    I need a fitbit because I need to track and be more disciplined throughout my hectic lifestyle! Trying to balance between my daily job, working out and having sufficient sleep is tough. I believe by having the fitbit, it can help me track my progress and take measures to improve my overall lifestyle!

  • With Fitbit, I could set up my health and fitness goal. I believed that fitbit would cheer me on and also tell me when I’m getting close to certain goals for the day. Besides, with Fitbit, I would make a better food choice as it could help us to count the calories that we taken for the day. So I believed that Fitbit would really help me out a lot on my fitness path.

  • I need a FitBit to help me take charge of my unruly lifestyle so that I can ease into a healthier beginning. With FitBit, I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to achieve my target fitness goal!

  • I need Fitbit to show me how unhealthy my body is inside. Being thin means the symptoms does not surface and it is all the more dangerous if I don’t keep fit, because diseases may struck me anytime without any warning.

  • I always have doubts when it comes to my first step. Not to mentioned, it is not easy when you have been an overweight girl and you tried to take the leap of faith and turn a new leaf ; to make fitness my habit.
    Where should I start, what should I do, how can I know track my progress , etc. Hence, with this fitbit I hope it shed some “heavenly” light to my journey in getting fit not to look good only, but to be a healthier & happier me.

    PS :::…..The insecurities you get when your boyfie is a gym junkie 😂.

    Thanks tziatzia!

  • The only reason I need a Fitbit is to shape myself to a better me. I believe that Fitbit would be a great addition for me to keep track of my fitness progress and most importantly, commit to be fit.

  • I have always thought that I could take care of my health when I grow older but I took things for granted and spent too much time focusing on my work and studies instead of a quality lifestyle so I hope Fitbit can help me to keep track on my daily activities and remind me of doing what is necessary to stay healthy.

  • I need a FITBIT, this is because I would need to exercise everyday as this can make my body to be healthy and it is good for my heart as I have a small hole on tricuspid valve in my heart. With FITBIT, i’m able to set the goals of every exercise and achieve it. Besides that, FITBIT also can be fashion style that match my outlook of the day. So, I would like to win a FITBIT from you

  • The Fitbit isn’t a magic wand to cure all our imperfections. It won’t make you kick the carb addiction, it won’t make us shrink a shirt size, BUT it does arm us with the very information that we need to make healthier decisions. If something can be tracked, it can be improved.
    Me being a workaholic doesn’t help my health, but Fitbit will. I want to show my best self, my most confident self to the world, and i will now, with Fitbit.

    Thank you,

  • Hello Tziaaa!

    I would love to get a Fitbit because I’m an avid runner!

    Life should not be all work and no play, therefore to strike a balance, I would incorporate exercise in between my free time to de-stress!

    Currently, i am using my phone as a tracker to check on the mileage and an indication of my calories burnt after each session.

    At times during my run, the weather would turn drastically and starting a heavy downpour, which I always worry that my phone would be damaged.

    With Fitbit, I would be able to also monitor such statistics and not to worry that if I’m caught in a rain!

    Thanks for the giveaway, goodluck to all!

  • Back in 2015, I was a fitness fanatic, I head to the gym in hardcore mode so that I could gain those extra muscle pounds into my body to make myself fit. But it all went down to zero and negative when I fell from a bike while doing mountain biking, I got injured and I have been on recovery state for the past 2 years and have recently got back to a normal condition. However, starting back gymming is never easy as the weights that I used to carry and those dedication are gone. Hence, I felt that with the help of fitbit, it keeps my motivation level high, and I am able to perform in my best condition and being dedicated//committed for every single weight training, hiking, crossfit, and maybe overcoming my trauma in mountain biking as well. Thus, getting it would be a great turn in my life. Thank you & sorry for the lengthy comment 😊😊

  • hello tziaaa thanks for the opportunity for this giveaway, for my reason that i need a fitbit is mainly to keep track of my sleeps throughout the nights as i have trouble sleeping at night, with this i can keep records and improve my sleeping habiy

  • Hello Tzia!
    It’s Hazel here.

    Omg, I’m so excited for this giveaway!
    I love getting my heart working and sweating out for leisure and for health! TBH, I’ve never heard of Fitbit until recently where it was advertised on social media. I’m really impressed with it’s waterproof feature(another reason to encourage me to swim, yay!) The design is so sleek and sassy I can wear it all the time; running, swimming and monitoring my heart rate when doing archery (need to keep the heart rate stable at all times). Would be awesome to have a device that can cater so much!

    I love active sportwears like sport watches but I’ve never owned one, since my economy status doesn’t allow me to, as a college girl. Let’s admit it, good quality sportwears aren’t cheap. :(
    And of course, I would love someone like you, a fitness role model to actually acknowledge this little fangirl. :D

    Thank you so much for hearing me out, sistah. Cheers and stay fabulous as you are! 😊😊

    Love,

  • A Fitbit would really helps me to track my sleeping patterns as I realised that I am feeling restless the next morning when I woke up even though I slept more than 7 hours. This year, I have also pledged to be more active either by way of walking or exercising in preparation of my wedding next year so winning a Fitbit would be something grateful for a reader of yours. :)

  • Hi Tziaa.. The reason I wish I could own a FitBit fitness gadget because I always wanted to own a fitness gadget in order for me to know the calories that I had burn during my daily workout. Besides, I am a weird person which have a habit on calculating my daily steps “spend” in order to reach my daily goal– 10,000 steps per day, but currently I am using step calculator apps which I had downloaded in my phone whereby I personally doubt about the accuracy of this app. Therefore, I hope I am lucky enough to own this awesome fitness gadget in order to keep me in the healthy lifestyle. And i would also like to thanks Tziaa to having this giftaway event. :)
