2 Days With My BodyBugg!
Friday, October 08, 2010
So I finally broke down and bought a Bodybugg. It's something I've wanted for a LONG time (a few seasons of watching BL), and I've made it to the 4th week of P90X, and I decided to go for it!
I'm still experimenting with it, definitely getting used to wearing the thing on my left arm. The first time I went to sleep with it on, I would wake up and my hand felt a little asleep :P
Yesterday I went on a 4.5 mile walk with my husband and it's awesome to hear the few little beeps at you when you reach your steps/calorie burn goals.
This is the first day logging my calories (this is my biggest struggle!), and the BB site isn't as user friendly as SparkPeople, but I'll get used to that too.
At first I was so mad because I thought it was just making up a calorie burn for me and it stated I had burned some 600 calories when I put it on this morning (I didn't sleep with it last night), and then I received a nice email from BB stating it estimates your downtime/sleep time calorie burn when you are not wearing the armband.
I've been a lazy bum today (it's soooo hard to switch from nights to being awake during the day sometimes!) so I do know I need to get a move on!
I don't have a whole lot of opinions on BB YET, since I haven't had it long, and obviously haven't lost any weight in two days, but so far I'm liking to see my calorie burn!
I'm very glad I spent the extra money and got the watch reader, although I take it out of the wrist watch and clip it to the BB strap (I also wash my hands a lot with work and whatnot, I'm scared to get it wet). It's nice to see your data as the day goes on.
More updates to come!
