Since my boys went back to school a couple weeks ago, I have decided that it was time for me to get back into an exercise routine again. My goal was to get out and walk/run every day, and wanted to shoot for 3 miles. I know for many people, that doesn’t seem like a lot, but for someone who is just getting back to working out it’s a lot.
I was pumped to get started and even had the chance to use the new Jawbone UP as I worked towards my new goal. I had no idea how many steps that I took every day so being able to track these things and see improvement sounded exciting to me!
Track your sleep activity, steps, calorie intake and more with the Jawbone UP wrist sensor and free mobile app. UP gives you meaningful, personalized insights so you can make lasting improvements to your everyday life.
UP is a system that takes a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle. The app displays your data, lets you add things like meals and mood, and delivers insights that keep you moving forward.
When I first received the Jawbone Up, I had a little bit of a hard time getting it to sync with my phone. After playing with it for a while and getting things figured out and claiming my unit, I was able to get started with setting my goals.
The Jawbone Up charges really quickly too and stays charged for up to 10 days. I love that because I don’t have to remember to charge it very often!
Since I have started using my unit, I have become very aware and maybe even a little obsessive about the amount of steps that I am getting in every day as well as home much sleep I get. These are the two top features that I use on my Jawbone. The recommendation is 10,000 steps every day for people, and I was really worried that I wouldn’t get that many steps in each day. I have been pleasantly surprised every day I have been blowing way past 10,000.
You can see that I achieved 185% on the activity level, that was 18,571 steps in one day! My sleep has been over 100% every day too, so I am getting an A+ in both! Love that!
