Keep UP With Your Fitness Goals With the Jawbone UP and Best Buy!

       It is no secret by now that my family has focused quite a bit on our health this year. With huge genetic illnesses on both sides of the family we decided it was time to take hold of our health and hopefully change the hands we have been dealt. Recently through the Best Buy Wolf Bloggers program I was given a chance to add something into my lifestyle that has not only helped me track my fitness progress but it has given me the knowledge of my own body and what I was putting into it that I didn't before know. The Jawbone UP Band is a band that you wear on your wrist. This band tracks your steps throughout the day and when you wear it at night it can also record you sleep, from the time you are actually in bed to the time that you are in a deep sleep and a light sleep. The best way to describe this fitness device is through pictures :)
It is made of a flexible plastics with the workings
inside, it has a cap that covers the charging end and
a small button that you use to change it from wake
to sleep.
       When you order yours there is a size chart, you simply measure your wrist and then find the size you need. The guide was very accurate and mine was a perfect fit.
You can link your band as often as you would
like by plugging it into the top of your iPhone
and select Android device. The results are
then listed by date in this easy to read graph.
       I really liked that you are able to see the percentage of your goal that you had met. It really helped me to know just how much I needed to get my butt in gear to meet my goals! Speaking of goals you are able to set your own but it gives you a recommended goal for your age and weight :)
You can link the Jawbone UP app with
several other popular fitness apps. I don't yet
use any of these but I think it is such a cool
option to give you just that added edge in
following your fitness goals.

Keeping track of food is a very important part
of any healthy living lifestyle.
       I really loved the food tracker. There was very few items that I came across that were not in the system. There was a nice feature to add your own as well. You could either search the library or you could use my favorite tool the bar code scanner. As I prepared my food I could scan the back of any packages that I was using and select my serving size. It added it to my menu :)
The things you add daily all get calculated together
so that you are able to see how much of the good
things and bad things you have put into your
body. The nice thing again is that these levels
are all based on your age and weight.
       I have really had a lot of fun reviewing this product. While I am not perfect I love that I can keep track of my progress. With a 10 day battery life I don't have to remember to charge my band non stop either! That is a really nice feature :) It is comfortable to wear even when sleeping I barely notice it.
Of course there are some nights I don't need the band to
tell me I slept well ;)

I love my Jawbone, especially being able to team up with friends and seeing when they are slacking off! Nothing like a little competition to get you moving.

What a neat device. I didn't know it could track all that. Maybe these will help give people some motivation too.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering.

She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the

Build-A-Bear Thin Mint Bear Review and Giveaway

I've mentioned before my love of Build-a-Bear, there is nothing that brings a bigger smile to a child's face then being able to create their very own personalized furry friend. One of the great parts about Build-a-Bear is they are constantly updating the friends you can create. Right now they have a great selection on Valentines friends that you and your children can create and love. I got the chance this month to review a friend that is available just TODAY! The Girl Scouts Thin Mints Bear brings back so  many memories as of my time as a girl scout. I love that on one foot there is a Thin Mints cookie, which is my personal favorite! On the other there is the Girl Scout Trefoil, the symbol every Girl Scout knows and has pride in. My daughter is 5 years old now and I am so excited. In less then a year she will start here journey through the ranks of the Girl Scouts. My daughter simply loved this bear(as she does all her Build a Bear frien
