Do I Exercise?

I used to, a lot!
But now, I'm slowly getting back to my active lifestyle as  I have been slacking off for the past 5 years (since I gave birth).  Today, I am announcing to the world, that I am doing my best to stay in shape!  Because I want to be healthy, I want to live longer - for me and my family!

A lot of you may find it easy just to announce what they want to do, as for me I needed motivation!  Everyday, I send my son to school in the morning and go straight to a coffee shop and nerd away with piles of work!  That goes on for more than a year, almost 2 years today!

One day, I did a lot of errands and was walking to several places and ended up with painful musles and joints.  It was a wake-up call for me (hello!  I'm not a grandma yet!)

So I made a conscious effort to do some simple yet effective workouts in between tasks.  A 30 -minute or even 10-minutes walk is still better than none.

So owning a Fitbit Alta HR is a perfect timing for me as it is a great motivation tool and it doesn't hurt that it looks cute on my wrist!

Note: Getting a manual treadmill at home is another option to easily get some extra exercise in during your day, without even having to leave your house!

In Coral Strap

Did you know that the band is interchangeable?  
You can choose between small or large band and the hook is quite easy to work it!  I don't have to call on my husband every single time I plan to change straps!  

Here are the features that I enjoy with my new Fitbit Alta HR.

You can change the time display feature depending on your preference.

Steps Tracker
This is my favorite part because I am inspired to move and walk more than usual!  I used to be really lazy but after having a Fitbit with me, I try to add up my steps and exceed my steps the day before!
If that's not motivation, I don't know how you would call that! :D

Heart Rate Tracking
Combining the benefits of PurePulse® heart rate technology, this is quite accurate and I rely highly on this after every workout session.

Distance Traveled
Perfect for those who plan to join the marathon too!  I've always wanted to try for a 5km run and this tracker will help me prepare for it!  (Shucks, hanggang 3km pa lang ata ako now!) :P

Calories Burned
Seriously, another favorite part because I like monitoring the calories burned after a particular workout.  Whether as simple as walk, brisk walking or jogging, I like to push myself to the limit and go for various activities that would help me burn the calories!

There are many additional Benefits that I enjoy using my Fitbit Alta HR, it tracks my sleep.  I tend to sleep earlier than usual just because I want to complete my sleeping cycle and Fitbit also reminds you the best time to sleep!

For fellow women especially me who has irregular monthly cycle, the menstrual tracker is a huge help because I tend to forget about it and ended up having stains in my clothing on random days!  (That's TMI but you know what I mean!)

One VERY important feature that some do not need is the WATER tracker.  I sometimes (well, most of the time) forget my water intake and it's really taking a toll in my body!  (Hello Acid Reflux and headaches!)  

With this Water tracker, I log the amount of water I drink and it will let me know that I'm not drinking enough!  It notifies me and I actually listen! :P

Because of Fitbit, I am chugging more water than usual and I know my body is thanking me as of the moment!

I am not an expert gadget reviewer but let me sum up everything I like and dislike about the Fitbit Alta HR.

I love how easy it is to use the Fitbit Altha HR, pairing is not an issue, you don't need to be a Tech Geek to be able to do so!  I was able to connect the app from the band immediately upon unboxing.

The slim design and look of the band is an added feature that I love.  I find myself including this in my OOTD posts because it looks so good!

And, not mentioned above, I love how through FitBit app, I receive notifications on calls and calendar reminders which is a HUGE deal since I always miss calls (hello Mommy bag!) 

And coming from someone who dislikes charging their gadgets, the battery life of Fitbit Alta HR can last days!  That's a huge deal for me!

Of course, there's always a downside to every product/item.  Because of the slim design, I find it hard to read the numbers at times considering I have 20/20 vision.  And tapping the screen takes a bit of effort unlike the other bands I've used.  And of course, when you're outdoor running under the sun, the reflection and brightness of the sun finds it even harder for me to read the screen, I have to cover it with my hand to be able to do so.

But since I wear this "Wonder Woman" bracelet (I'd like to call it that way as I feel so powerful!), my physical activities improved and I drink more water --- what more can I ask for?
