Sooo I’ve been living in a van….. down by the river, for a good 8 months now.
Alright, so it’s an RV and it’s not really by a River, but still.
I spend a LOT of time working in a small space, and while it’s fun, I’ve been really neglecting my fitness, because I “don’t have a gym or space”
Then my trainer head was like
“WHOA NELLY!! Stop right there! You have all you need with your shoes and two legs”
However, have I mentioned, I hate running?
So, I was asked to do a product review of the new Omron Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker (HJ-327T)
Our most advanced tracker yet, the Omron Alvita Wireless Activity Tracker (HJ-327T) is petite yet powerful. It allows you to transfer your fitness data wirelessly to your smartphone with our free Omron Fitness App. Featuring Bluetooth® Smart technology, the Alvita Wireless Tracker records regular steps, aerobic steps, distance and calories burned so you can set realistic goals and check progress along the way
I was actually REALLY excited about this little gadget because I needed a little push. I wanted to see how this baby worked and I ripped it open and went straight for the instructions….
OK, I admit, I freak out at gadgety things… BUT this was so easy. The instructions were basically: pop in a battery. Download an app. Now WALK!!!
OMG OMG. I have never been so excited to get out since my first pedometer in 7th grade! I grabbed my two #dogjerks and told my hubby “you’re coming with me!!” and off we went!!
I had to fight the urge to keep looking at it and checking my phone to see my progress. It certainly was fun to see how it shows your activity by time of day.
I realize that between taking care of work, my pups my husband, etc. I don’t always leave much time for myself and I forget how good FRESH AIR and a quick walk feels.
The hubs and I got to chat and reconnect and it was FUN.
Omron is encouraging women like us to #walkoutwednesdays where we schedule a walk with a friend and get out there on Wednesdays!
Why is it important to walk with a friend and not alone?
Many studies have shown that working out with a partner or group of people encourages you to stay on track and motivated. Many people choose to workout with someone who lives within close proximity.
I am excited to see how I can increase my daily activity and also reconnect with a friend or my husband once a week, just getting outside.
The awesome thing about this little tracker is that it is only $40!
It syncs to your phone and you can also sign up for a free account at www.omronwelllness.com where you can:
