Accept the consequences as they come, without any complaints, in spite of what God may send your way – Oswald Chambers

Today was a little all over the place in terms of activities and weather. I actually ‘worked out’ three times today: a 7-minute “pajama workout” with my daughter to start my day, a mile walk with the kids after lunch and yoga at the library by myself. It turns out my husband came down with the flu, so we’re doing everything we can to keep active, stay healthy and not breathe the same germs as him.

Speaking of being active, I wanted to share my thoughts on the Fitbit Ionic. Verizon sent me a new Fitbit Ionic with a copper face and slate blue band to try out for two weeks. In terms of its performance, it’s really unlike anything I’ve ever seen, both stylish and functional. With the Fitbit Ionic, you stay on top of your progress with a device that automatically tracks your activities, distances, location and heart rate. Featuring personal coaching and storage for over 300 songs, you can leave your phone at home and jump-start your workout like never before.

Even though the Ionic allows you to “leave your phone at home”, one of the things I appreciated most about the Fitbit Ionic is the integration with my iPhone. The Fitbit App not only tracks and syncs automatically with the Ionic, but offers extra insights.


My one concern is that over the past two weeks while I was reviewing the Fitbit Ionic, the news story came out that our troops’ location was being tracked because of their fitness devices, so I freaked out a bit and haven’t worn it since.

So there you have it: as the latest wearable tech device, the Fitness Ionic soars. My only complaint was that even though I received notifications of text messages and phone calls, I couldn’t reply or respond. (Truth be told, there may be a way to do it, but I couldn’t find it). However, I still can’t decide if I’m ready to let everyone know my location by wearing a fitness tracker, but if I decide to jump all in, the Fitbit Ionic is a great way to go.

The Fitbit Ionic is the ideal watch if you’re serious about fitness. It’s accurate at tracking steps and distance, and has built-in GPS so you can track a run without having to take your smartphone with you.
