Middle-Age Memoirs : Beachbody, a Smart Watch and a Schedule

Happy New Year everyone! This will be a brief post, as my son and I have a date to go see the new Star Wars movie. 

I hope you all had a good holiday season. Mine was wonderful and went much too fast. My better half took some well needed and much deserved vacation days, so it was nice to have him home for once.


As a nutrition nut, I have the food side of wellness down pat. However, I absolutely abhor exercise of any kind and have always struggled with the fitness side of wellness. So, at the end of December, my better half and I took Beachbody On Demand up on a free 14 day trial. I am currently doing two of their exercise plans: 3 week yoga retreat and 21 day fix. I have done both workouts everyday since January 1.

I really felt my age last week. After day one, I could barely walk, and my plantar fasciitis flared to the extreme. In fact, it hurt so much, I had to use my son’s cane from when he broke his leg a few years ago.

Needless to say, it was a rough beginning. But, I’m feeling much better now. My nutrition is back on track after some splurging during Christmas and my muscle aches and plantar fasciitis have subsided. I’ll keep you up to speed on how my fitness goes and if I stick with it this time.

A Smart Watch

I wanted to show all of you one of my Christmas gifts, which I am loving. It;s a Letscom Smart Watch with fitness and sleep tracker.

On Amazon, Fitbit runs anywhere from $75 to $150 depending on the version. This is a Letscom Smartwatch fitness tracker and costs $39.99. As you can see, it has lots of options: sport, sleep and heart rate tracking, timers, pedometer, smart phone connections, so you can receive texts and caller ID on the watch, music control and relaxation.

One of my favorite options is a sedentary alert, which makes the watch buzz if you sit for too long. You can set the alert from 15 to 180 minutes. I have mine set at 60 minutes, then get up and walk for 10 minutes when the alert sounds.

The battery is great! I charged it on Christmas Eve when I received it and didn’t have to charge it again until Jan. 3- 10 days!! As you can see in the first picture, Even though I changed it 2 days ago, the battery is still at 96%…Awesome!

A new schedule!

I’ll be passing on more info on this in the near future, I just wanted to let you know that I’m increasing my posts from 2 days per week to 4 days per week. Currently, I post on this site every Monday and I then I post on my RECIPE BLOG, every Thursday. I will be increasing the posts on each site to 2 days per week, for a total of 4 posts per week. I will post on this site on MONDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS. Then, I’ll post on my recipe blog on TUESDAYS AND THURSDAYS. Stay tuned for more details on weekly themes.

Until next time…Namaste my friends

  1. Belated happy new year. Exercising after no exercise always is tough.but then it gets better. I dont like the gym, but I go because exercise is important! Nice alternative to a fit bit, thank you for the insight.

    Good luck with your new schedule.
