I know I parted ways with my FitBit Flex months and months and months ago – so I already knew I was hitting 10,000 steps each day and forming healthy habits [avoiding sitting for too long.) But when Verizon offered to send me a Garmin Vivofit to try out as part of the #ConnectedLife campaign, I was 100% on board to give it a shot.
Disclaimer: I was compensated for my social shares with Verizon for the #ConnectedLife campaign as well as for sharing a review of the Garmin Vivofit. All opinions in this post are my own.
We all know how much fun walking in the Disney parks can be with a fitness gadget, so I put the Vivofit to its first test Saturday at Animal Kingdom. By the end of the day, with a TurboFire Workout and tons of fun, I was at 20,000 steps for the day!
Pros about the Vivofit versus other gadgets I’ve tried: You don’t have to charge it [uses a small battery that lasts up to the average of a year,] it’s comfortable and sturdy, you have a watch at the ready along with steps and calories.
The Vivofit also syncs up easily and quickly to the Garmin Connect app on the phone.
You would be proud of me for taking some time to WATCH sports this week also – I mean, it was Super Bowl Sunday and all 😉 I particularly paid attention to the commercials since they always give me a chuckle. I was pretty proud of Always of their #LikeAGirl campaign commercial. Inspired to hop back in the saddle with a 5k coming up this weekend, I used their motivation to run for the first time in 6 months on Monday morning before getting Max: 30 in.
I’m so proud to live in a time where women can be strong, fit, powerful – and not necessarily have to feel the need to domesticate and live up to the ‘girly’ name. I know I, for one, am not particularly ‘girly.’ It’s not a bad thing if someone is, shoot, I wish I could be moreso at times. I just feel most beautiful and comfortable in my workout clothes and with the strength of my muscles pushing me through each day.
