Nike Fuel Band update.....

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

I've had the Nike Fuel Band for over a month now and I have to say I would highly recommend it to anyone trying to get into shape. The number one reason I love this thing so much is because it keeps me so engaged and interested in meeting my daily fitness goals. I find myself working out at 11:00PM trying to get myself across my daily fitness fuel points goal of 3000 per day.

I don't think I have ever been this engaged with a product. It makes me want to succeed more than ever. Knowing exactly where I am with just a press of a button is awesome and the key to it's appeal.

I am twice as active now. I am twice as motivated now. I feel great!

Get one of these as soon as you can is my advice. There is nothing on the market that compares to how elegant the design is, how easy it is to set up and use or how durable and waterproof it is. I checked them all out and this is the one!

No.....I am not a Nike employee and I rarely write reviews. This product is simply that good.

Ping me if you have any questions about it!

Nike FuelBand

Sunday, July 29, 2012

I just picked up a Nike Fuelband. I must say this thing is quite motivating indeed. I just purchased it yesterday but already I can see the huge upside to the device. I will post more feedback as I go. Here is a great article about it.......

Anybody experience this before?

Thursday, July 26, 2012

Sooooo......this might sound odd but stay with me.
I lose more weight when I concentrate on loosing weight.
I track everything. I can see every ounce of food and every step of exercise on my tracker. I do the same thing every variables. Here is the odd part, when super busy with my business and family my weight loss stops. I don't gain, I just stay at one weight. Weeks that I am not so busy and completely focused on my weight loss I drop much more weight.
Is it possible that our minds have the ability to juice metabolism through our thoughts? I seriously believe mine does.
Does anyone know of any studies that have been done on the subject?
Any thoughts on this?

    All great points BLUE42DOWN.......I am sure there are a few variables that impact my weight when busy vs not. I think it would be a lot easier to get my brain around these differences effecting my weight if they were more substantial I guess. I work from home so my days are fairly static and busy for me basically equates to simply being more distracted than usual. I think more about work stuff than my weight loss. When not busy I am thinking about my weight and keeping myself in the moment.
The thought of focus and concentration on weight loss is interesting and I think there is something to it. I would love to learn more about it.

    Well, two things I can think of.

One is that the variable is in the things you don't track. For example, if you're more likely to be sitting at a computer for longer hours when you're super busy with your business or sitting and driving a lot when busy with family, but doing household chores and out working in the garden when you're not, your exercise that you track may be the same, but your activity level the rest of the time is different. Other things could be sleep, what you eat (if you swap to easier to prepare meals, different types of food), and even easing up on the workouts because we're more worn down by the busyness (not at 30 minutes on the elliptical are equal).

The other is that with all the things we don't know fully or understand completely about the mind - body connection, it is entirely possible. Stresses, excitement, worry, all sorts of things cause physiological changes. Some could conceivably affect how metabolically active your body is.

Up to 12 pounds lost!

Monday, July 16, 2012

It's been pretty easy to figure out how things are going to be for the next 82 pounds.

Stick to 1900 calories per out for 20-30 minutes four days a week minimum will produce a weight loss of around 2-3 pounds per week. One free day of no food restrictions and no workout (Sunday)

Do the exact same thing except bump my workouts up to six days per week and lose 4-5 pounds per week. One free day of no food restrictions and no workout (Sunday)

I guess the only question at this point is how soon I want to hit my overall goal.

I really like the way things are going.....very manageable. The trick for my is the free day. Extremely motivating to have that one day to look forward to.

I got the free day trick from Bill Phillips and the Body For Life program. I used it about ten years ago to lose over 60 pounds.

    This is so interesting! I'm medically induced diabetic; therefore the 1,900 a day calorie part, most likely, won't work for me; however, the plan you are using does sound like an awesome one. I will have to find a similar plan, that will work for me. Thanks; and congrats on the weight that you have lost, so far. In fact, according to the weight list, that you can see on my SparkPage, you lost 'a bald eagle!' I applaud you!

I need to workout six days a week.

Thursday, July 12, 2012

I am coming to the conclusion that in order to maintain a good pace of losing weight I am going to need to workout a full six days a week. Blah.
