New Discoveries with Jawbone UP24

It's been about a month since I have partnered up with Jawbone UP24 and the learning never seems to stop!  In my first posting I shared what my first week was like with the Jawbone, that included measuring my activity and discovering my sleep patterns.  As I continued to familiarize myself with the Jawbone I builded my team by adding friends that have also purchased the UP24 or recently received one as a gift. With the inclusion of team members I was inspired to motivate others with comments and words of advice as they did the same.

Another thing I loved was seeing the difference in steps taken from day to day.  For example when I took Zumba class vs. Kickboxing I could see a huge difference in steps even though both classes are a great workout.  I had set a goal for myself to achieve a certain amount of steps a day which got me moving more mid-day and breaking a way from the desk in the afternoons.  On one particular day I was challenged by the UP app to reach 12,500 steps and fell short by a mere 274 steps.  I was determined right to the bitter end to reach that goal and found myself marching in place until the cut off at 12 midnight!  

I enjoyed the daily tips that Jawbone shared ranging from the health benefits of chia seeds to how to get more rest in the evening.  I often re-shared these tips via social media which was well received by a few of my followers on Twitter.  I also discovered recipe ideas from the app and my fellow teammates.  Seeing what my friends were logging food wise gave me ideas on how to make a few of my meals more exciting.  

If you are thinking about investing in the band you can get a feel for it by using the UP app to log your daily activities, sleep and meals even if you don't have a band just yet!  With the holidays just around the corner forming healthy habits now is a great way to avoid the temptation that is soon to come.
