Runtastic Orbit Review | It's a Harleyyy Life

If you could describe this past summer in the healthy living world in a couple of words it would be: Fitness Tracker. Man have they been HOT! There’s not a lot of places you can go anymore without seeing them on peoples arms. I love it. Seeing people take notice to their own lifestyle and making changes. High five folks!

For the past month and a half I have been wearing a brand new fitness tracker from the company Runtastic. It is called “Orbit.”

The Bands


Of course when I first opened the box I thought it was adorable. It came with two bands (black and blue) and a pedometer wearing option.

I immediately put “the brains of the operation” in the black band where it has stayed ever since. I plan on trying out the pedometer type option soon but wearing it on my wrist is just so easy and fun.

PS: The bands come in other colors as well. So please feel free to match it with your outfit if you are stylish.

The Features


Runtastic Orbit Features | It's a Harleyyy Life

This fitness tracker tracks so much fun data. I’m going to share with you some of my favorites though in more detail!

Sleep- Obviously you can look at the clock and see what time you go to sleep and what time you wake up but this feature takes one less calculation off your mind (I mean really, who does math anymore when you have The Google). It also tracks your sleep efficiency.

Waterproof- You never have to take this band off (okay, that’s a lie you do have to charge it). When it is charged though you can wear it in the shower, in the pool, everywhere because it is waterproof!

Vibration Alert- One of my biggest problems is sitting too much. I’m constantly sitting at work. When I’m sitting too much the Orbit vibrates telling me to get my booty up and get moving! I love this feature because I really do get up and take a quick little walk.

The App

The Orbit hooks up to an app through bluetooth, which is one feature I also absolutely love. I can get the easy quick details on my wrist but if I want to get them in more detail I can just look on my phone (which is also always by my side).

The Importance

I love the idea of fitness trackers. I think that it is important to be aware of how much sleep you are getting, how many steps you are taking, how many calories you are burning and more. Knowing more about how your body works and your daily routine will help you live a healthier lifestyle and that is what it is all about. Living a better lifestyle… leads to living a healthier, happier life.

ADORBS! That is truly the only word for it! I’ll be sure to give my doggies an extra hug or two today. Why don’t you do the same? (:

Today I’m actually here to share with you a blog post I wrote for Nicole @ Simply Nicole last week while she was away on her honeymoon. It was so good I had to share it with you guys too just in case you missed it! Enjoy!

Today I am here to tell you about one of my favorite things in the world… CrossFit! Before you start thinking… “oh she is one of thoseeeee girls.” …wait…I guess I am. Everyone finds a workout they love and mine just happens to be this amazing sport that consists of different workouts everyday and lifting heavy things off the ground just to put them down again! (Yah, I make weird faces when I lift.)

CrossFit is a little bit different than most sports. The owners and CrossFitters use these strange words that can be pretty intimidating at first but if you are prepared before you go in you are good to go and will feel more comfortable.

5 Terms To Know Before You Walk Into a CrossFit Gym | It's a Harleyyy Life

1. WOD= Workout of the Day. This is probably the most important one. All CrossFit gyms are set up differently but at my gym we start by stretching, then we work on a skill and end with the WOD. The workout changes everyday and is usually never the same unless it is a benchmark WOD.

2. AMRAP= As Many Reps/Rounds as Possible. You might see this one in a WOD. You see WOD’s can come in all different shapes and sizes. There can be rounds… or not.. there can be count how many reps you did in a certain amount of time. There really is no set workout (which is why I love it so much. I never get bored). Here are two examples of AMRAP’s with rounds and reps:

I feel like my brain can’t keep up with life at the moment. I’ve been barely able to blog. I apologize. I’m really trying. My head though has only been in one place lately… our future house (so so soon). Things are moving pretty good with the whole process. We are closing on Friday (let’s hope I […]

Meal Prep Thursday 8.21.14

August 21, 2014

I was totally going for carb overload last week and loved it! Two weeks ago my body was like “let’s burn up everything you eat in a second”… and it did. I hate that feeling. I’d rather be belly content… not full… not hungry. This weeks meal prep is from last weeks meals. I meal prepped on […]
