Maybe you all know this about me or maybe you don’t: in my free-time I’m a BarreFIT and certified Pilates instructor. Free time. Right. That is a misnomer since I have five kids who I homeschool, a husband, two dogs, a cat, twenty something chickens, ducks, and guinea fowl, and my own business. Perhaps I should’ve said “in the time when I’m not homeschooling, wife-ing, chasing critters, and making food, I like to help people get or stay fit. With everything I do, though -aside from the fitness instruction- there’s an element of being sedentary to it. I sit down to homeschool the kids, write recipes, stand at the counter for long periods of time while cooking, watch movies with my husband, play games with the kids… There’s a LOT of sitting. The fitness instruction doesn’t balance out the extra long stretches on my tuckus. I need a little reminder to keep moving, and that’s where my Fitbit Charge HR comes into play. My husband and I both wear them. They track the number of steps we take during the day, the number of active minutes, the flights of stairs we climb, AND our heart rate while we do all of this. I have mine set to buzz on my wrist every half hour or so to remind me to get up and get the blood moving. And wonder of wonders, it’s like a Dick Tracy watch and it shows who is calling my cell phone on the display. I love this thing.
I love it so much that I got together with a handful of awesome bloggers who ALSO love fitness and we teamed up to buy two of these to give away. One person will win TWO of them!! One for you and your spouse or significant other or to gift to a friend.
