I bought a FitBit last week, and I instantly fell in love with it. What exactly is a FitBit? It is a wearable fitness tracker that monitors everything from steps taken, heartbeat, hours slept, and food eaten.
A FitBit is a valuable piece of wearable technology. Here are 5 reasons why you should invest in one:
1. The sleep tracker function
We all know it’s important to get enough sleep each night. FitBit tracks your sleeping habits, which can help you improve them. You can view how long you slept for, how many minutes you were ‘restless’ for, and how long you were awake.
2. It is also a watch
I love this feature. The LED sceeen displays the time and date. I enjoy the convenience of having both the time and date right on my wrist.
3. It encourages you to workout
After a certain period of inactivity, FitBit prompts you to move. You are also able to input workout challenges as motivation. Challenges such as “Workweek Hustle” can be completed with friends to motivate you to get more steps.
Breakfast is a versatile meal. It can involve grab-and-go options or a completely cooked meal. Here are five quick tips to help you develop better breakfast habits.
1. Keep breakfast in mind when you grocery shop
It is a good idea to create a list of potential breakfast ideas before you grocery shop each week. If you pick up breakfast items when the week begins, there’s a higher chance you will eat breakfast if the items you want are readily available.
2. Add protein into your breakfast
Protein keeps you full for longer. I am guilty of skimping on protein in favor of a bagel or slice of toast in the morning. It is easy to add protein into an otherwise carb-heavy meal by including an egg, lentils, or even peanut butter.
3. Prep your meal the night before
Simple prep can make a busy morning a lot easier. Plan your breakfast meal the night before, and complete prep steps. This may include slicing vegetables, freezing smoothie ingredients, etc.
