Yup, you read right, I've been bugged. I finally broke down and bought a Bodybugg. I've been wanting one for months, but just wasn't sure I needed one. It came in Monday, and I was super-excited to get it. I spent all evening trying to figure out the ins & outs of it.
First off, it was slightly amazing to me to realize I had burned 800+ calories while I slept. I purchased the model that syncs with my iPhone, so I can keep tabs on things pretty easily. I wore it to work yesterday, of course...and my calorie burn & number of steps definitely surprised me. They recommend 10,000 steps per day. I thought I would have trouble meeting that. However, I totally exceeded it! I'm really anxious to see what kind of things I find out once I wear it a few days. I'm supposed to have a coaching session after 7 days of wearing the armband - and I'm really hoping the session is informative. There are many things I'm not real sure about.
To be honest, at the moment - I'm not impressed with the food logging system. I've continued logging with MyFitnessPal so far. I just logged my food as a lump sum of calories per meal instead of logging every item. I have only found 2 things I eat in the database so far. Everything else I have had to manually add to the system. I do NOT have time for that! Ha! Maybe I'm missing something, though.
I was anxious to work out while wearing the armband. Last night I did a little Turbo Kick, and the results were conflicting. I checked my total at the beginning and end and got one total. Then, when I actually synced the bugg with the computer I got a different total! 300+ calories difference! So, it looks like I definitely need that coaching session...
Anyone want to weigh-in on the Bodybugg?
