January Sucess & SAVE THE DATE

I just want to put this out there for the Twin Falls, Idaho peeps - Save the Date of March 24th!

I asked the Magic Valley Full Moon Trail Runners if I can have a Pearl Izumi "takeover" of their March full moon run. They agreed. Isn't that cool? I have lots of swag and some snacks. So, if you can make the March 24th full moon run, that would be great.

Ok, on to what happened January. Well, I didn't stick to my fitness and workout plan and I had planned. I did eat clean for about 75-80% of the time. BUT I did indulge in some Starbucks and wine.

My weight still dropped about 8 pounds just from that. I think that is pretty fantastic. This time last year, I was killing myself at the gym for about 4 hours a day and eating clean about 95% of the time. Knowing that the diet makes THIS much difference is amazing to me. Indulging in something that makes me happy is nice, because dieting / weight loss isn't an all or nothing deal. My body can make some progress in moderation. Which is good because my wine business has picked up for the month of February!

I recently promoted which is a good thing. It was rather easy to promote to Senior Wine Consultant and the next level after this seems pretty easy to promote to and I hope to do it in the next couple of months. Since I don't work my business every day, I don't have a specific time frame. But by summer is a good goal for me.

In March, I get to meet and have some face to face training with an Executive VP of the company. I know what some of my personal road blocks are and hearing someone tell me face to face how to overcome my objections will be nice. I do enjoy this wine business more then some of the other party plans out there. (I was with one for almost 10 years and I enjoy sharing wine much more then face cream and makeup!)

EatSmart Body Check Scale Review & Giveaway

This post is sponsored by EatSmart and no other compensation was given.

If you follow on the IG, you noticed I posted about a new toy I received from EatSmart.

From my IG
One of the things that I used on my weight loss challenge last year was weighing myself every day. I tracked my numbers on the calendar and made sure that the month was ended at a lower weight then the start. I am getting back into the habit of checking in with the scale every morning. So far, this month is ending at a lower weight then where I started from. :-)

The scale that I have been using the past year is fairly basic. It tells me the number. That is it. Its been working for me. But now, this new scale from EatSmart is pretty fancy and I'm pretty excited to use it.

From here

The EatSmart Precision Body Check Digital Body Analyzer is not your ordinary bathroom scale because it quickly and easily measures weight, and estimates body fat, body water, body muscle, BMI, bone mass, and daily caloric intake using BIA electrode technology. This scale is perfect for individuals who are serious about taking control of their health. The Precision Body Check Digital Body Analyzer Scale stores up to 8 different users personal profiles and will be able to recognize these users as soon as they step onto the scale. This auto recognition software makes it simple to operate, since all you have to do is stand on the platform barefoot and it identifies who you are based on past weight. Not having to select a user gives it the same functionality as a basic bathroom scale with added benefit of BMI, % body fat, % body muscle, % body water, bone mass and estimated caloric intake. The daily caloric intake estimate calculates how many calories are needed to maintain your weight.

Other features include a sturdy, glass-top platform, an athlete mode for very active users and when a weight locks in, the scale will beep allowing the user to step off and have an easy view of the readout. Let's not forget about its universal EatSmart features! The Precision Body Check Digital Body Analyzer uses "Step-On" technology, which means no more tapping to turn on your scale. It measures up to 400lbs and will display an accurate readout to the nearest .2 lbs. on the over sized 3.7" LCD display. Its sleek design and slim profile fits perfectly into any surrounding. Along with your Precision Body Check Body Analyzer, you receive our easy to follow Instruction Manual (which also defines body fat, body water, body muscle and bone mass) and 3 AAA batteries.
Pretty cool, huh!

I like the fact that it tells you your % body fat, % body muscle, % body water, bone mass. I think those are just as important as the weight.

Not my weight.
