Bodybugg Results – Week 2

Do you like my new skin?

I have had the Bodybugg for over two weeks now and I wanted to give an update on how it is helping me improve my health.  If you don’t know what a Bodybugg is you can visit my in-depth review of the product here.

So I’ve been wearing it on average 21.9 hours a day. I changed my goals from losing 1lb. a week to 1.5lbs a week, which comes out to a deficit of 750 calories a day. I’ve been able to keep an average deficit of 760 the last two weeks.

Theoretically, I should have been able to lose 3lbs. in the last two weeks. As of today, I am right on target with a 3lb. loss over the last two weeks. I went down 4lbs., but a pound of it must have been water weight because I’m holding steady at 3lbs. lost.

The Bodybugg is also a pedometer and my goal is 10,000 steps a day. I find that during the weekend I reach this goal with no problem. However, during the week I have difficulties reaching 10,000 steps because I sit on my butt all day long at work. I’ve been really conscious of my steps and I try to walk around the office as much as possible. On days where I run, I can reach the 10,000 steps a day without a problem as well. I would like to get to a point where I am doing 10,000 steps just in my daily routine.

My worst numbers come from the sleep category. My goal is to sleep 8 hours a day. However, I have fallen short every single day. My average over the last two weeks has been 4 hours and 55 minutes of restful sleep. My goal over the next month or two is to condition myself to go to bed earlier on weekdays. It shouldn’t be a problem so long as I don’t exercise too long in the garage and/or stay up watching entire network TV seasons on Netflix…lol  [[Damn Netflix!!!]]

All in all, I am really happy with the last two weeks. I have learned so much and going forward I want to apply what I have learned and become even healthier.

As far as the armband, I have had plenty of people ask me about it. I don’t get tired of telling them about how amazing the Bodybugg really is. However, I think people must think I am nuts because I want to know everything about my body. Maybe they are right to an extent, but who cares! I am so happy knowing my body this well. After all, I am stuck with this body my entire life, might as well get to know it intimately.
