Say ‘Yes’ to Zucchini Noodles!

If you know me you know I love veggies (especially zucchini). At a young age, I would beg my parents to make zucchini with cheese and tomatoes (which I still do when I go visit) fast-forward years later I’m still obsessed.

Since I love zucchini and make it a lot I often try new recipes to keep the simple taste pleasing without getting bored!

Recently, I’ve been enjoying zucchini noodles it’s fairly easy to make and leaves room to be creative and make it your own. Below find my perfect date night zucchini noodle recipe.

Fitbit Review

Is it weird to say I feel naked without my Fitbit? I’ve been actively counting my steps for almost a year now and have become very aware of my daily physical activity.

When I first acquired my Fitbit as a gift last Christmas I never thought it would become part of my daily life. Keep reading to see what I love about my daily fitness accessory!

Tells time: Fitbit has become a popular way to tell time at a flick of a wrist. No need to keep pulling out the cell phone!

Counts steps: I have a set goal of 8,000 steps per day. I know that’s not a lot but I have a desk job (7am -6pm) and I don’t move around as much as I like. Since having the Fitbit I am more aware of my activity throughout the day.

Challenges: If you’re a competitive person then Fitbit is for you! I frequently challenge friends and family through the week or on weekends making both myself and my challenger aware of our daily activity while acting as a coach to keep each other active.

App: I sync my Fitbit to the Fitbit app daily it’s a great way to visually see your progress throughout the week, view milestones and be rewarded by Fitbit for moving and grooving.

What are you waiting for get up and get stepping!
