UP Jawbone

So out of the blue I got an email from Jawbone regarding my weekly UP stats. I've never gotten one of these before, but I really like it and hope they continue.

If you are not familiar with UP from Jawbone, you should be. It's just the greatest thing EVER and the technology is outta this world! Go HERE and check it out! I got mine in April for my 30th birthday. I wear it daily and it blends in with my other bracelets and accessories.

Anyways, with starting to work-out more regularly in October, I was glad to see I was making my daily goals.

I usually don't sync for several days, so that's why it looks like I didn't do anything from the 3rd on in the picture below.

I'm going to try and remember to sync daily. It's so easy, I don't know why I always forget. I have been slacking on keeping track of sleep, too, which I also am working on as well. Sleep is very important.

Last Tuesday was the first day I got up at 5:30am to get to the gym. No surprise I had an exceptional day with steps.

While looking at that number makes me feel good on the days I work out, I sometimes get depressed at looking at that number on the days I don't work out, even if I do reach my goal, which is a minimum of 10,000 steps a day. I know it's all relative and in the end it all balances out.

Here is what the rest of the week looked like.

You can see that I actually recorded my sleep this day. I didn't work out and I was just shy of making my goal.

Today was the 2nd day I got up early. I did a HIIT class.

You can definitely tell the difference between days where I work out compared to the days when I don't.

I did my 75 min Zumba class today.

And even though it looks like I didn't do anything today, I actually made it to the gym and did a 30 minute CORE class. Which killed me and made me sore for two days, but it was a good sore.

Like I said, I like getting these weekly emails. Just another thing to help me stay accountable in my fitness journey. I went online to my account to make sure I do still get them and was pleasantly surprised to see that they now offer it for the Android. I know people were saying it was an Apple thing, but it's not, so if you have an Android and are wanting one, go for it!

I'm looking at getting a Polar watch too (probably next week after payday), so I can keep track of my calories better within workouts and really start using MyFitness Pal again. Email me if you use MyFitnessPal and we can be friends. Do you have a Polar watch for working out? Do you like it?

I have been debating between fitbit flex or the jawbone! I have a polar HRM and I LOVE IT but the battery died. I am not sure how much it costs to replace. I wonder if there is a bracelet thing on the market that tracks heart rate and calories? Probs not cause heart rate is monitored differently? Anyway, it is a good investment. Once I can figure out the battery thing I'll use it again. It's a very accurate and reliable reading.

I need one of these! I have a fitbit zip and I pretty much hate it. It's great for tracking and I love that it syncs to MFP (2Momma2) but for a mom with a one and two yearl old, I always forget to wear it! I'll wear it around the house and change to my running clothes I'll forget it, or anytime I leave the house in a rush which happens all the time. I love the idea of having something I could wear all the time.

By the way, I'll be at Bloggy Boot Camp this weekend! Excited!

I have a fitbit and I love it! Good job on your steps. I'm trying to do 10,000 a day, but haven't quite made that consistently.

I have been trying to decide between fitbit flex and jawbone!! Does the jawbone not save your data if you don't sync it? Or does it save from sync to sync? Also, rumor is that polar has a new watch coming out sometime this month that is similar to the jawbone. I forget what it is called though!
