When I opened the box I had received from Best Buy as part of this month’s challenge as a Best Buy Ambassador, I cringed a little. I was face to face with the FitBit Aria, a digital scale.
This month was gonna be THE time I would start my road to being healthy. I had some extra help too, since I was also sent a Cuisinart Compact Juice Extractor:
You see, this month these two gadgets are part of a challenge for us Best Buy Ambassadors. Together, we have been asked to take a million steps in the month of January. There’s about 8 of us, so that is about 120,000+ each. Oy. I thought it would be hard, but it’s actually not so bad. In about 4 days, I took almost 30,000 steps. Of course I had Las Vegas to help me!
What I have found is these products have kicked my butt into gear and are helping me realize getting healthy is not so hard. Eat better, be more active and be accountable for it all. That’s what the FitBit Aria is doing. It is synched with my FitBit Ultra so that every step I take is there and it measures my weight and BMI and automatically uploads it to my FitBit dashboard so I can track my progress.
So where does the the Cuisinart come into play? I noticed that while I don’t eat badly…I don’t exactly eat well. I wasn’t getting nearly the amount of veggies I should be getting and I snack horribly. Now, I have a been playing with juice mixtures and having a juice every morning, and snacking on fruits throughout the day. I think I can get used to this.
