How is it the beginning of a new decade!? Where did the last 10 years go?! As you get older, it just seems that time goes by faster and faster. I’ve been meaning to listen to Stuff You Should Know’s “Short Stuff: Why Does Time Speed Up As You Age?” podcast, maybe there’s a scientific reason why we feel this way the older we get?
My wedding is next year so this year I really want to take the time to focus on self-care. The fiancé got a Fitbit and that motivated me to get one too so that I can keep track of my eating habits, water intake, the amount of exercise and sleep that I’m getting each week. The first Fitbit product that I started using wasn’t actually the tracker but the Aria Air scale. It gave me the hard facts and I knew it was just the right kick in the butt to get me back into a healthy lifestyle. I hop on it every morning to get a pulse on where I’m at with my weight before I start my day. I’m not super focused on my weight or the calorie count but overall I do want to be more conscious and try to get my calorie in and out to be balanced and keep track of the progress I’m making. It has definitely motivated me to hit the gym more and I’ve been feeling great!
I thought about it for quite some time on which Fitbit would best suit my lifestyle and ended up getting the Inspire HR. This tracker along with the Fitbit app gives me motivation, just the right notifications and tracks everything in one place. Having a band that looks proportionate to my wrist was also important for me. I didn’t want anything too clunky as that may deter me from wanting to wear it. I’m so happy that I got the Inspire, it’s sleek and doesn’t feel like it gets in the way throughout the day or when I’m sleeping.
Once I got it I knew I’d be looking into getting a new band that would fit my style. The fiancé found me this one from a brand called iGK on Amazon. They had great reviews and it’s only $16 so I wouldn’t even be mad about it if I didn’t end up liking it. I decided on the champagne colour even though most of my jewellery are in yellow gold. The champagne colour looked more sublet. I am so happy that I got this colour, it looks great with my engagement ring as well as dainty jewellery like my Mejuri Chain Bracelet.
It’s so helpful to have a partner and people around you that are supportive. We’ve been encouraging and motivating. I’ll update you on the progress I make throughout the year but so far I’ve been eating healthier, drinking more water and working out a lot more. I would love to know your self-care goals for this year.
Thanks for reading – enjoy your Sunday!
