Number one - you know I LIVE for summer. Number two - if you're anything like me you're in the midst of some hard core summer prep for our mind, body & spirit! I can't lie... I'm a little behind the eight ball this year. It was kind of a crazy winter & I feel like I have quite a few pounds to spare before I sport a bathing suit with any semblance of confidence.
So I thought I would do a series of What I'm Obsessed With revolving around the things I'm obsessing over to help get me ready for summer. Whatcha think about that?!
The first in the series has to do with the tech that I'm using to focus on summer preparations.
My Fitness Pal
Lets be honest - I can seriously obsess over fad diets but the truth is it all comes down to calories in versus calories out. I don't claim to be a nutrition expert but it seems to me that the best way to lose weight is to count calories & track the foods I eat & to do this I need My Fitness Pal. A trainer introduced this to me & it makes the whole process soooo easy!
Beats by Dr Dre Powerbeats 2 Wireless Headphones
I'm not a huge fan of over ear headphones... I know sue me. They seem to be all the rage but I'm more of a fan of the older school version when I'm doing crazy cardio. They sound amazing, stay put & don't feel so clunky to me.
Fitbit Charge 2
Now that I'm used to going to studios that track your heart rate & results when I do randomly do my own fitness thing it feels so amateur hour to not know how hard you've pushed & how much more you have to do to feel the burn. And when you do this your workouts are so much more productive.
Body Fat Scale
If you're using an old school scale you need to upgrade. Who really cares what the number on the scale is anyway? What's more important - the number on the scale or how you look in your clothes & how healthy & fit you look & feel . These days everyone I know does so much work on their bodies you really need to know so much more to reach your goals then just your weight. The one I have measures all sorts of things like body fat, muscle mass & bone density so I feel a lot better about the number on the scale.
All this stressing about summer prep & how far away I feel with summer oh so close can cause a person to go crazy. That's where my Headspace app comes in to play. It's an app that teaches you how to meditate & get centered - it's as simple as that. And yes - I'm obsessed.
Check back next week for the next in my summer prep series.
And lemme know in the comments below what tech things you're obsessed with right now!
