They call it the “body bugg” hmmm Last March I was “introduced” to this little critter that is known as “the body bugg” by Rebecca, my Nutritionist, when I started my Wellness Makeover.

You might ask, what is this little bug? And what does it do?” Well, it is a small black band that squeezes your upper arm and measures the calories that you expend all day. It measures everything from steps to calories! And to boot, there is a computer program where you input all of your food you eat as accurately as possible and at the end of the day, you can see calories in and just how many calories you burned off… The coolest thing to me was it also measured your resting time, because you wear it alllll the time, except in the shower… so I saw exactly how much sleep I was getting and how many calories I burned resting… Did you know sleeping burned calories? Not that I recommend sleeping all day!

As all little “pests” it was a bit of a nuisance but I have long missed the pesty and accurate device sooo last night I went back online to search for the little annoyance and yes, I ordered a new one so that I can continue with my Wellness Journey with accurate accountability…

On one hand the bane of my existence somehow was a pure delight to see just how well I was doing with my exercising! Ok, I’m ready to start the “itching” Mr. body bugg!
