Eat Smart Products Weight Tracker & BMI Digital Bathroom Scale Product Review

This post is sponsored by Eat Smart Products and no other compensation has been given. 

I have been working my butt off the last 6 weeks. I am right at the end of two local weight loss challenges. One ends on the 14th and one ends on the 21st. I am ready for them to end, but in a way, I am not. I am enjoying the routine and the progress I have been making! I even took progression photos of the last couple of weeks. I was not expecting to share them because, well, they are just not flattering!

Thankfully, my history with Eat Smart products has provided me with another bathroom scale. This has been very well used as I track myself everyday, but only log in my "official" weight once a week. I have also been keeping track of my BMI and I am proud to say that this is down!

I have reviewed a few of the Eat Smart bathroom scales over the years and I think this one is my favorite out of all of them.


This is my favorite scale because it is not clear! I was having issues with a prev…

Upcoming Local Races

There are not a whole lot of runs in the wintertime in Boise, Idaho. Which makes me sad. I am going to be outside slogging away, I might as well get a t-shirt and a bagel for doing it with a few hundred other people, right?

There are however a few good races out there. There are also a few sites that have not updated their site from races nearly a year ago, so there may be even more available.

You do already know about the Christmas Run on Saturday and the New Years Day 5K on Jan 1st.

On January 21, 2012 there is an Ultra run that a friend from High Schools husband is running in & she is going to be a volunteer for. It is the Wilson Creek 50k, 20 mile, 10 mile. It actually sounds like fun - if I was a ultra runner and a trail runner. We have not had much snow in the mountains, so it will be frozen dirt trails  - until it decides to snow.

February 11, 2012 there will be the Heart to Heart 5k in Albion, Idaho. (3 hour drive from Boise) It is $20 to register before Jan 20th and $25 after.

One of the sites that has actually updated is the YMCA. They have a few races planned for the year and on March 17th, there is a St. Patricks Day Fun Run. It is a 5 mile or 5K. Looks like fun to me. $25 to register with shirt, $18 with no shirt.

April is when runs start becoming more available. (If the sites would updates their sites with 2012 info) We got the Beat Coach Pete 5k on the 14th. I believe he ran his 5k in 25 minutes in 2011, so if you are faster then me (my 5k was 35 minutes), you can beat him.

May we have an interesting mix of runs on every weekend. On the 5th we have a 5k that is a fundraiser for East Jr. Hi. Athletics.  $20 registration for the run or walk.

On May 19th, we have the Famous Idaho Potato Marathon with lots of people doing the 5k and hardly anyone doing the Marathon. This is a big deal with a 10k and a half marathon.

Are you signed up for any other races in 2012? I can't wait to sign up for more then the 2 I have already got down on the calendar!
