• fitbook Giveaway

    November 22, 2011

    You guys know that I’m semi-obsessed with planning and tracking my workouts, right? It keeps me focused on my goals and motivated to achieve them, so I’m all about it. Plus, this type of health journaling really works:

    In one of the largest weight loss studies to date, Kaiser Permanente asked nearly 1,700 participants to eat healthy and exercise. Nearly 2/3 of participants lost 9 lbs over the 6-month period. Those who logged their diet and exercise, however, lost an average of 20 lbs – more than double the amount of the non-journalers.

    Write things down. Maintaining a workout and diet log will help you stay accountable. —Men’s Fitness (February 2009)

    Like a diary for your body, keeping a workout log helps you train smarter and stay honest. Used wisely, logging your training could be just the edge you need to take your workout to the next level. —Oxygen (June 2008)

    Recently, OpenSky introduced me to a great fitness + nutrition journal called fitbook that offers a unique 12-week system to track your progress and reach your goals. It’s awesome. Here’s why I love it:

    • It helps you create a game plan to achieve both your big and small goals.
    • You can plan your weekly workouts and log your daily eats, which helps keep you on track and accountable.
    • There’s a slot in the back to hold your gym card, ID, iPod shuffle, hair elastics, headband, etc.
    • It’s just 5.5 square inches, so it’s very travel-friendly.


    OpenSky is offering a deal TOMORROW (Wednesday) on the fitbook (they’re the only supplier to offer it at a discounted price), so in order to drum-up some buzz for the sale, I’m giving away two fitbooks to two lucky CNC readers! (Good timing with the upcoming holidays, right?!)

    To enter the giveaway: Just leave a comment on this post about a fitness goal that you are currently working toward. You can earn a second entry by tweeting about or posting this giveaway on Facebook. (Just be sure to leave a second comment with your tweet/FB post.) I’ll randomly pick two winners tomorrow morning. Good luck!

    I’m working on having a consistent running schedule. I had some issues with my knee a few months ago, I took a good two weeks off which really helped, but since then, I’ve had trouble getting back into my routine.


    Donna November 23, 2011 at 10:07 am

    I am working towards getting back into the shape I was in for my wedding earlier this year – I slacked off after the honeymoon and I’m eager to get back on track!


    Carol November 23, 2011 at 10:25 am

    I am working toward a more consistent workout plan. Except for a stretch of about two years when I consistently worked out on my lunch hour, I have never really stuck with anything.

    My fitness goal right now is to loose 10 pound by Christmas Eve, since my friend is getting married that night!!! In one month I’ve lost 6!!! Im being really positive about reaching my goal! Im overweight, I admit it…my perfect weight should be 115lbs. currently Im at 131, but at least I want to be 120lbs…10 more pounds to go and hopefully I’ll be fit by Spring 2012!!! Can’t wait!

    This looks like an awesome product! I’m currently training for my first half marathon. I started running in June and I’ve run two 5k races to date.


    Nicole W. November 23, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    This looks awesome. I am currently working on running my first 5k. I was never a run in high school so this a huge accomplishment for me.


    Beth W. November 23, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    I am trying to maintain my weight over the holidays and I just found out that I have many food intolerances. It would be great to have something to track everything down in one place.


    Susie November 23, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    I am working towards losing the weight for my wedding but more importantly I am working on adapting my lifestyle to accomodate my fiance who has Type 2 diabetes. I plan for us to both eat the same things to help regulate his glucose levels.

    Two years ago, after coming out of a bad marriage and not exercising, I weighed over 300 pounds. I’ve since changed my eating habits, started pilates and cycling and lost 85 pounds. I have 80 more to go, but I plan to get my pilates teacging certification within the next 12 months and get back into my high school cheerleading skirt! OPERATION CHEERLEADER SKIRT!
