Goals rock. Whether it’s running a marathon or simply aiming to work out three times a week for 30 minutes, it helps to have a plan, a destination and a reward for reaching it (hellooo massage). And no matter how good of S.M.A.R.T. goals you set, it helps to have a buddy and a tracking device in place to keep you guided, focused and on track. And that’s where today’s review comes in…
Sure, a book isn’t technically a friend and you can’t really call it up to go see a chick flick, but after using the fitbook for a few weeks, it felt like it was my gal pal. And a very fit one at that. I “talked” to it daily, entering in my activity and foods that I ate. Each week and month we set goals together, and even picked out rewards! I confided in her about how I was feeling, and even shared my own successes and little fun phrases that I found inspiring. Small enough to fit inside my purse, I took her with me everywhere (cue My Buddy and Me music). And, together, we got me running 3 miles again and dropping the five pounds that being sad and injured left me with.
All craziness aside though, this little tool—when you really do use it daily—is awesome. Each book gives you a full 12-week planning system to develop larger, three-month goals and then smaller, weekly goals to get there. You can record your workouts, your weight and your food intake, and it even comes with a cute little pen that matches. I’m such a sucker for stationary and other cute office supplies.
They say that what gets measured is what matters, and this little fitbook helps you focus on what really does matter—your health and happiness! —Jenn
