Bit of Fit{ness} and Fashion

It's not a secret I hate to sweat, sports are more for spectating than participation, and if you ever see me running, you better run too, because that means someone is chasing after me.  Don't get me wrong, I do workout, keep in shape and stay healthy - i'm just not one to go 'all out' or 'hardcore' when it comes to exercise.  Thanks to genetics, I have been very lucky to have had a really fast metabolism and have been able to do moderate exercise to stay in shape.  And since moving to NYC, I literally make myself walk everywhere.  I am even looking at an apartment that is a 30 minute walk from my office, just so I can have that little bit of everyday 'exercise' to help combat the happy hours and ice cream runs I tend to do quite frequently.

I got a fitbit for christmas last year and have sort of been obsessed with it ever since.  By now, I am sure most of you have heard of this little fitness device.  If you haven't, you can read all about them here.  Everyone uses them differently and tracks certain things.  I use mine for steps/miles per day, my sleep habits and my water intake.  I don't use it track calories or my 'diet' if you will, but if you want to do that, it will certainly help you keep track.  Since putting this baby on my wrist it's sort of become a daily ritual to check how many steps I have walked (you can set a daily goal) and I try to over achieve that as often as possible, I like to track how much water I drink and it's interesting to see how 'restless' I am at night and how many hours of good sleep I actually get.

Being someone who loves options and accessories, I love that fitbit has a plethora of band colors for you to choose from.  So far I have collected the black, navy, orange and mint colors.  They are great because they are rubber so they don't get saturated when working out and sweating (ugh, gross), and you can shower or swim in them without a problem.  My issue has been that they don't always go with my work attire or a night out that calls for something a little fancier than my lulu lemon yoga pants.  

Fortunately, my problem has been solved.  Enter Tory Burch.  She has answered our prayers! She has come out with a collection that fits the Fitbit Flex and it's a game changer y'all! The bangle is a little pricey, but, like me, if you work in a corporate environment where you have to be a little more dressed up or are meeting with clients regularly, the cost per wear is basically $0.  Check out her collection below.  Right now it is pre-order, so any birthday's coming up or even if you are a super planner and need a Christmas gift for that hard to buy lady, this would be a great gift!
