I have a feeling that most of us, whether we actually made it one of our New Year's resolutions or not, will have vowed to get a little bit fitter this year or to eat slightly better and after consuming more food than humanly possible over the festive period, I'm definitely one of those people. But as someone with a real fear of the gym (the last two times I went, I fainted), I've been looking at making a few realistic changes to what I already do everyday. So instead of taking a lift up a couple of flights, I take the stairs. I've gotten off the bus or Subway a couple of stops earlier than I normally would and have been making a real effort to reach at least, or as close to, 10.000 steps a day as I can. I even walked nearly 16,000 one day!
I had been relying on using my iPhone to track such activity but as I don't always have my phone on me this doesn't quite accurately reflect what I'm doing on a daily basis, so I'd been looking into investing in an activity tracker to do just that. You might even remember that I had a Fitbit on my US wishlist but I ended up buying a Kate Spade bag instead, so that didn't happen.
Just when I was doing a little research into which one to go for, Fenetic Wellbeing got in touch to ask if I'd like to get involved in their #FeneticFitness campaign and if I'd like to receive a MISFIT Shine 2 Activity Tracker* to help me track my fitness levels and sleep quality. It really was perfect timing! And the fact that it's rose gold didn't hurt either, of course.
For those of us who find it more difficult to exercise, either because of low levels of fitness (this is basically me) or because of health issues, Fenetic Wellbeing have lots of options to ease you into exercising. They even do electric bikes which work to give you a helping hand and make exercise a reality for those who think it might be too big a leap for them.
If like me, you've been looking to invest in an activity tracker, you'll be happy to know that today I'm giving one away. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this rose gold MISFIT Shine 2 Activity Tracker is to fill out the Rafflecopter form below;
