Hello Fitness Tracker- Lumoid Review!

I’m ALL about eating well and I truly enjoy the challenge of finding and creating healthy meals. I feel happy, nourished and strong thanks to my well balanced diet. But ‘how and what’ you eat is only part of the equation. The other part? Fitness! I live a very active life. I’m constantly running around, I get to the gym when I can, I enjoy a good  Zumba class now and then, and I absolutely LOVE walking. While I can honestly say that being fit and active is part of my life, that wasn’t always the case. 

In fact, a few years ago I was pretty sedimentary. When I lost 35 pounds in high school I did it entirely by changing my diet. Exercise wasn’t even a thought for me. A few years ago I was working as a waitress at a summer camp. Just for fun, I decided to wear an old-fashioned pedometer to track my daily steps. I loved it! I set goals for myself each week and I kept reaching (and beating!) those goals. My co-workers constantly asked me my ‘step count’ and I didn’t want to disappoint. Keeping track like this kept me accountable and motivated. One week I set my goal at 100,000 steps… I ended up doing it in 5 days!! 

When I went back to college in the fall I decided to invest in a REAL, accurate, quality fitness tracker to keep me motivated. My co-workers were no longer around to cheer me on and I realized how much I needed the encouragement. I did some research and I decided on a FitBit One. FitBits are ‘all the rage’ these days and you see them everywhere, but I’d like to think I was a little ahead of the game back then!

I wore my Fitbit for a whole year and it totally changed how I view exercise. Realizing that long walks (or even short ones a few times a day) were as beneficial as a traditional workout taught me to love fitness! I learned that walking is the cheapest form of therapy out there. It helps me clear my head and ease my mind. I spend time talking to God, planning my next meal, setting goals and just relaxing. Man, I LOVE it! I could walk for hours! 

For some reason, I stopped wearing a tracker my Junior year. I figured I had learned the benefits of exercise and I’d be fine. Unfortunately, my active lifestyle decreased dramatically. I was busy with classes, I worked as a nanny a few days a week, and I had moved back home (which meant I couldn’t go for a late walk around campus before bed). As I walked less, my stress levels increased. There is definitely a correlation between the two. 

Long story short, this past summer I purchased another FitBit One and now I can’t stop moving!! Walking is a priority once again and I can honestly thank my fitness tracker for giving me that motivation I need.


I’ve recently teamed up with Lumoid (an amazing company that’s as passionate about helping you reach your fitness goals as I am) to offer a Giveaway for a FREE FitBit One Tracker! Valued at $100, you guys don’t wanna miss this! The giveaway is offered through my Instagram so click the link to check it out! At Lumoid they know that staying motivated can be a challenge. Life gets busy and stressful and sometimes we don’t work out or even move as much as we should. Their fitness trackers help you stay motivated- whether that means waking up earlier to go for a walk, skipping your evening TV time to hit the gym, or simply doing a few extra laps around campus (or the office).


I could talk all day about my love for fitness and the importance of tracking, but finding the tracker that works for YOU is essential. That’s another reason why I love Lumoid. They know that everyone is different and people have different fitness goals. They actually offer a one week program where you try 3 different trackers for the whole week and YOU decide which works best for YOU. For example, when I tried their products, I tried the Bella Beat Tracker and although I think it’s absolutely gorgeous, it tracks ‘active minutes’ as opposed to ‘steps’ (I prefer steps). Maybe you want something that tracks vigorous workouts. That’s an option, too. I love the idea of trying different trackers before you settle on the right one. When you wear your tracker everyday, you really want to love it! I know I do.

How about you? Do you wear a fitness tracker? If not, do you want to??

    I love my Fitbit! As you well know, haha! It’s a good way to be honest with yourself about how much you are actually moving throughout the day!

    I wore a fitness tracker for years and absolutely loved it. Somewhere along the way I decided that I didn’t have a need to wear it anymore, but I think it can be a great healthy living tool!

      I remember your blog post where you wrote about how you stopped wearing it!! You’re so active Nicole!! You don’t need the extra motivation to sneak in those steps, but sometimes I do!!

    I love that the fitbit gave you an appreciation for walking. Walking is so awesome, and I think it’s often an under rated exercise. 🙂

    I have a Fitbit and I actually don’t really pay much attention to it – unless Rach sets a challenge as she’s one of my “Fitbit friends” hahaha! Then the competitive side of me needs to WIN!
