Getting Fit with the FitBit Zip


6 weeks ago I joined a gym. Work Out World, cause I’m Jersey Strong. I absolutely love it! It was finally time for me to get healthy, get in shape and lose this weight. So far I’ve been sticking to the treadmill and I keep upping my pace, incline and the amount of time I’m on the treadmill.


I also use the app My Fitness Pal to track my fitness, food, etc. I love that I can use it on my phone (especially since its always with me). My doctor had recommended My Fitness Pal to me and is a huge advocate of this app.


So when Verizon sent me the FitBit Zip I was thrilled. What perfect timing! Not only can I track my fitness while at the gym but also throughout the day as I just keep it on and it tracks my steps, distance, etc. all day. At the end of the day I just put my Fit Bit next to my computer and it automatically syncs wirelessly.  Easy Peazy!


What’s even better is that I can export my FitBit information into My Fitness Pal. Amazing! It also works with other apps including:  Lose It, Run Keeper, Map my Fitness, Endomondo and Spark People.


FitBit also allows you to earn badges for your successes, challenge friends and more.


If you have made the choice to start getting healthier, or if you have already been on the right path, the FitBit is for you. It’s a super easy way to track your progress and stay motivated as well as challenge yourself. Let’s face it we are all a little competitive even with ourselves.

I'm a Mrs. G's VIB!

I'm a VIB!

I’m a Mrs. G.’s VIB (Very Important Blogger… but of course)! Today I attended the first of many of the Mrs. G.’s VIB Blogger Series at the Mrs. G.’s store on Route 1 in Lawrenceville, NJ.

My mom has shopped at Mrs. G.’s for a number of years and this was the first time I was able to experience their incredible showroom. The event was an opportunity to meet fellow bloggers and network with them, as well as take a tour of the Mrs. G.’s facility and watch some demos.

Their sales people are so knowledgeable about all of their products and extremely helpful. I fell in love with the front loading Electrolux washer and dryer (I want it in red), as well as a few tv’s.

Kelly Ripa has one. So should I! I guess I should have checked them out sooner so we could watch the World Series (Go Yankees) tonight on one of them. Hey Santa…are you listening?

One of the many great tv's at Mrs. G.'s

We participated in a demo featuring an Electrolux kitchen and ate tomato bisque soup, salmon, brussel sprouts with pancetta, apple cider and fondue! How cool is that? I even placed my hands on the stove and didn’t get burnt. Since there isn’t a flame and its all magnetic, it’s the perfect option for families with small children.

Cooking things up!Paper towel and my hand on stove. Not burning!End result... Delish!

Ok, so about that tv… they have some amazing sets to choose from. Did you know there are 3D capable tv’s? If you have a 3D capable tv you can plug it into a media server that can show 3D content and Voila! (The server comes with the 3D glasses, not the tv.) I was able to test it out watching “Coraline” the movie. Incredible!

Mrs. G.’s #1 Priority as they proudly display on large signs throughout the store is… drum roll please… CUSTOMER SERVICE. How many places can say that? In a day and age where customer service is seriously lacking (especially with the larger corporations, ahem Verizon), Mrs. G.’s knows whats important. As a third generation family owned company, Debbie Schaeffer is doing a phenomenal job following in her family’s footsteps, staying true to the company and their mission and providing the best products at the BEST prices.

Santa? You still there?
