Goodness. I’ve had all kinds of things to say on this blog, but have found myself running around like a chicken with its head cut off lately. So the big news around here is that I’m bugged.
Literally. I am now the proud owner of a BodyBugg, which is a device you wear on your arm to track your calorie burn each day. You then synch it to the BodyBugg website, where you also keep track of your food intake, and the program helps you manage your ideal calorie deficit to meet your weight loss goals. I’ve been wearing this thing for about 24 hours now, and I have to admit the data I’m getting from it is so intruiguing, and I really like having such tangible goals for calorie burn and intake each day. It’s fascinating to look at the chart showing how many calories I burn throughout the day (shown by the minute). I can’t wait to wear this during my workout today to see what it says. I’ll post a sample chart once I get a full day of data on this thing.
So far, it has been a bit annoying to have this thing strapped to me, and it really bugged me (ha!) as I tried to sleep last night (yes, you’re supposed to wear it at ALL times except when you shower). But I think it will be worth it.
If you’ve watched America’s Biggest Loser lately, you’ll know that the recent contestants are wearing BodyBuggs. I think there really is something to this thing, but will keep you posted on my progress.
So if you see me, now you know why my right arm looks extra fat! I have to admit I feel like I’m participating in a science experiment. I also am initiating a social experiment — how long can I wear this thing before my husband notices it?
