Hey all! Just a quick update this month on the progress of our OCB Facebook Walking Group! If you missed the announcement post about our group, stop by THIS BLOG POST and take a look. All are still welcome and you can join at any time! Demonstrating healthy habits not only keeps us top-notch in the classroom, but it also is a great learning lesson for our students!
We have made it to the Michigan UP and are enjoying the sights of the beaches and the forests along the way. I am hoping to see some of that greenery in real action soon. I think Phil might have fibbed a bit this year about the whole early spring thing. I am (im)patiently waiting for those warmer temps to bring back the green leaves, birds, and flowers.
Something that has helped me to stay on track even with the cold temps outside though is my Mystride Activity Tracker from LifeSpan. It is pretty cool! Let me show you some of the features!
It has a cool clip which makes it easy to clip right onto your pants – or you can also remove it from the clip and tuck it away in your pocket as well. No place to clip or wear it? Clip it right to your school ID lanyard! I love that it is versatile depending on what you might be wearing that day.
It keeps a really accurate count of your steps for the day, and stores up to 7 days worth of your cumulative totals too in case you forget to write them down right away!
It also counts calories burned, the time (in minutes) that you have exercised, and includes a progress bar to display the progress you’ve made towards completing your personal daily step count goal. Pretty cool stuff!
One of the neatest features I love about the Mystride Activity Tracker is that it has a really cool little flip out USB drive. Why you ask? With purchase, you also receive a 4-month complimentary membership to the online LifeSpan Fitness Club, and when you plug in your Activity Tracker, it automatically updates your history and totals every time you synchronize the unit with the software! More on the LifeSpan Fitness Club next month, but know that it is super helpful to have a support system in place – and the technology makes it easy to see your progress in black and white.
OK – BIG NEWS! I am so excited! The AWESOME team at LifeSpan has offered to do a giveaway of FIVE Mystride Activity Trackers this month, which are valued at $79.99 each)! Whoo hoo!
Good luck to all who enter from LifeSpan and Organized Classroom! Be well!
