Exercise Simple & Organized - Fit Clip

     Between cooking, cleaning, and chasing the kids, many of us don't take care of ourselves the way we should - especially this time of year.  We should.  Let's face it - A fitness routine is vital to being healthy and happy.  I don't know about you, but happy is definitely not the word I think of when I look at a gym.  I can't help but admire people who have gym memberships and use them.  That takes a level of discipline and determination that I simply don't possess.  But just because I don't want to join a gym doesn't mean I don't want to exercise.

     My mantra is simple, organized, peaceful, happy!  So, why can't we make fitness work the same way?  There is nothing simpler than walking.  It's free.  It's easy.  It's good exercise.  And most everyone can do it.  Actually, you are probably already doing it and don't realize how much!

     I got this cool little fitness tracker recently.  It's called a Cel-Lab Fit Clip.  It's not a wrist band, so I don't have to worry about it when I am doing dishes, laundry and all the other chores that keep my hands in water all the time.  I clip it onto my waistband and forget about it.  It can also be clipped onto your shoelaces, bra, collar or wherever is comfortable for you.  Wanna know what I found out in the first week?  I walk roughly 2 miles per day doing absolutely nothing beyond my daily housework and chores.  That is absolutely inspiring.  It makes me want to get out and walk more!  So, I am.  I've been out on the walking trails around my house almost everyday.  And I feel better than I have in years.  Seriously - just walking.  Talk about putting the simple back into life.  Wow.

     And I wouldn't be me if I wasn't immediately going after the organized part, right?  So, this Fit Clip...  I can press the button on it and see how many steps I've walked, how many calories I've burned, how many miles, how much time I've been active, and what percent of my goal I have reached for the day.  Seeing those numbers makes me want to walk more to see how much better I can do.  It's very motivational.

     There's also this computer software that goes with it.  The clip is plugged into the computer where the data is uploaded.  Once it's there, you can see charts and graphs that will show you what you have done.  There's even a sleep mode to show how well you are resting at night.

     The software is in BETA mode right now and I got it for free so that I could test it out and tell people about it.  It's also available on Amazon at a super discounted price right now.  Fitness Clip Activity Tracker and Calorie Counter  If you go to that link, there is also a coupon code that you can use.  IVYAF8C5  When you add this code to your shopping cart, you can get an additional 30% off the price.  The price changes, but right now that code would make this fitness tracker only $13.99 - and shipping is free if you are an Amazon Prime member.

     Don't stress the fact that the software is in BETA mode.  I say grab it while it is cheap.  The company is fantastic and will help you with absolutely anything you need.
