I'm a Fitbit
user. I lost 30 lbs in 3 months. I want to lose another 5 lbs before the end of this month to make it 35 lbs. YES! I can do it!
My goal for now is to reach 200 lbs by July 1st.
That's a lost of 15 lbs just this month alone. That's 2-3 hours of intense workout for at least 5 days a week.
Right now, I'm focusing strictly on cardio to reach my goal but will switch to strength and cardio training after I reach my goal.
My cardio workout is 30 minutes on the erg (indoor rowing machine), 30 minutes on a recumbent bike, and 50 minutes on the treadmill. There's no rest between workouts. All workouts are at full throttle (as far/fast as I can go). The idea is to get my heart rate up as much as possible to burn calories.
If you never heard of fitbit before well let me tell you about it...
Basically, it's a company that sells a handful of products to help you stay active and lead a healthier life. All their products give you access to their site Dashboard which gives you a history of your daily activity (exercise), calories burned, steps walked, and floors climbed.
You can add friends to share your progress. It's a great team effort. Everyone in the group ends up motivating each other.
Their products range from a wristband, clip-on trackers, and a scale.
Currently, I'm only using the scale. The scale is great. It recognizes about 8 people. It measures weight, BMI, and % body fat. It automatically connects to fitbit.com via WIFI.
My wife is using the One Wireless Activity - a clip-on tracker. I'm holding out for the wristband which is currently sold out.
My 2 boys and brother also workout with us.
It's a great learning lesson for everyone...
Never give up on something you desire ... push yourself ... don't expect someone to things for you.
As a group, we are also planning to attend our first Spartan Race
later this year.
I want to teach my boys how to become winners and still be humble.
I want to teach my boys how to become winners even after failing.
I'm on a roll and just wanted to share it with you!!!
