I have no self control what so ever. That has to be the hardest part of trying to live a healthy life for me. I will be doing really well about keeping myself under control, then someone brings out the donuts and it is like my body has never tasted sugar before! I turn all will power off and go crazy! I regret it later and have to start over again, usually unsuccessfully. I was so excited when Jawbone asked to team up with me so that I could try their Jawbone Up24 band.
I am really hoping it is going to help give me the wake up call that I need in order to make the healthy changes that I need to make in my life that will actually stick. I have been wearing it for about a week now and I have already had a pretty huge wake up call. I am not getting enough sleep at all! I have had to make a major effort to go to bed earlier if I am working to wake up early each morning. I notice a huge difference in my will power to stay away from sugar, if I have had enough sleep the night before.
I have loved that the Jawbone Up24 band syncs to their app so that I can see how much sleep I got, how many steps I have taken throughout the day, and track my nutrition. I have had a pretty eye opening experience with the food score it gives you. I can’t seem to get my score up very high because I haven’t eaten as well as I should be eating. Seeing the food score has really helped me realize just how unhealthy some of the food is that I have been eating.
I am really hoping that this Jawbone Up24 band will be just the accountability that I need to make that change that I am looking for. Yes, it would be nice to lose the extra weight that I know I have, but I really think it is more important to focus on just treating my body the way it needs to be treated and make healthy choices first. I think that once I do that, the weight will come off eventually.
I will be giving you guys a little post next month where I will be following up on how things are going and how my body is feeling after using my Jawbone Up24 band for a month! I am excited to see how things will change!
If you are trying to make a healthy change in your life, but can’t seem to keep yourself accountable, Jawbone Up24 may be just what you need too! You can learn more about Jawbone HERE.
