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!

    Definitely look into it! Their website gives a lot of info too. All of the contestants on the Biggest Loser wear them. It's a little arm censor you wear as much as you can (they recommend 23hrs per day) and it's 90% accurate with how many calories you burn at rest, sleep, exercising etc. There are many people of every weight and fitness level who are obsessed with the bodybugg. There's even a team page on SparkPeople too. I don't have a 24hr fitness near me, but I guess it's sold there too and HUGELY popular for their trainers and many who work out there.

    It's not cheap. I think I spent around $240 for the arm thing and a reader, which is not necessary but I'm glad I got it.

    I love my BodyBugg. I don't have a lot of weight to lose, but I do have a tendency to binge and can gain weight very easily. I have the digital display too and use it throughout the day. I love know what my calorie burn is throughout the day and it keeps me more on track. I have an excel spreadsheet that I use for my food tracking and then I input it once a day in the BodyBugg site, that way I don't have to track twice.

    I hope you enjoy your Bugg and it works well for you!

    Had to check out what a BodyBugg was!! Its a super name...so apt. I'd be interested to see how it goes and what you think...is this thing well known? I've never heard of it, but that may not be surprising. Maybe I'll Google it! Anyway thanks for the Blog...I'll check back in next week.
