New Year, New You- Put Your Best Foot Forward! #GetMotivated #BestBuy

This year, I am noticing more than ever, that folks are really wanting to get healthy. Long gone are the days of extreme dieting. These days, everyone is looking to get fit by being active every day. I recently joined a fitness campaign called 'Walk Across America,' in my hometown community. The challenge is for everyone to track their 'miles walked' each week, and submit them via e-mail. Our goal as a community, is to literally chart enough miles walked to walk across America. This year, our theme is walking through our national parks.

Come on- let's get moving!

Lucky for me, I don't necessarily have to walk or run a whole to participate in the challenge. An old knee injury from college keeps me from doing a whole lot of jogging or vigorous walking. I do, however, enjoy aerobic walking combinations, such as walking and then a few mnutes of kickboxing, jogging in place, etc. I've also recently really gotten into yoga, after having been a fan of pilates for about five years. Through out this challenge, I really am trying to make an effort to add in more easy going walking, just to bump up my cardio.

Having a great tracker, like FitBit is a huge help to me! I really love knowing that I can see my progress right in front of me, which helps to keep me accountable and it's rewarding for me to be able to see myself reach my own goals. Best Buy has a great selection of tracking devices for workouts, and I'm thinking of purchasing one for my hubby, so we can both keep an eye on our progress and encourage one another.


Yurbuds

Listening to music, whether I am practicing yoga or going for a walk, helps me focus more on what I'm doing, and makes my stress and my cares melt away. I love listening to the old (no lie) Pure Moods tracks when doing yoga and pilates! In fact, did you know that studies show that listening to music can increase the intensity and duration of a workout by 15%? That's music to my ears, but sadly, a lot of people miss out in this added benefit, because their earphones or earbuds hurt their ears, and they wind up taking them out or not bothering with them in the first place. I can't tell you how many times this very thing has happened to me, and I've just given up on enjoying music while working out!

In 2008, an Ironman Triathelet developed Yurbuds, a product that's designed for comfort and fit, as well as delivering quality audio and durability, as well. YurBuds has listened to and learned from athletes and from the community, because they believe in serving their customers and community memmbers, and providing solutions to their needs. Doing this has allowed YurBuds to encourage atheletes to break their personal barriers and never stop or give up.



I think Yurbuds look amazing, and am especially looking forward to trying the new Inspire Limited Edition Wireless Sport Earphones! They're Bluetooth capable and totally cordless! These innovative earphones lock into place so they'll never hurt, or fall off! Genius! The 15mm drivers provide the biggest sound available, providing the motivation you need to #neverstop. These sweat and water resistant earphones feature full track & call control with a wind-blocking microphone designed for call clarity. The athlete tested battery lasts up to 6 hours and provides visual and audible indicators when running low. This is sound with no strings attached.

  1. I LOVE the idea of getting fit by being active every day. It makes it so much easier than committing to a gym or exercise routine. Plus, being active every day can turn into a habit that you keep for life. Awesome post!

    1. Thanks, Micki! So true- it realy makes a huge difference to just incorporate it into your daily life. I try really hard to set a good example for my son, so he'll want to be active through life, as well.

  2. Now that I've put a FitBit on my wishlist, this is the second time in two days that I've seen one mentioned. I also wanted to tell you that I really like your tank top in the first picture. It's really pretty!

  3. I am trying to find a good workout routine that works for me...I have a hard time when it comes to motivation, and I have literally NO friends where I live...We moved here about a year ago, and I am super shy. I'm also home all day with 2 preschoolers. Makes it hard! I love the idea of incorporating music, and these earbuds look wonderful. I love the fact that they won't fall out!

  4. These Yurbuds do look cool. They've come a long ways since the day of the Walkman and metal over-the-head headphones with foam covers! :)
