BestBuy Shine Elegant Wearable Tracker #Review

My first thought when I saw the Misfit Shine Elegant in it's packaging was it looked so high tech that I thought of Aliens. Yep! My mind went there. Maybe because the packaging looked like a saucer? That may have been it. Then after opening the Shine, It still gave off that smooth, elegant vibe to me that it was something different, and special. Misfit Shine Elegant is sold exclusively at BestBuy.

I really dig that it does not look like My Hubbies tracker, and still gives me that girly accessory feel while I work out, and it tracks me.  The fact the Misfit does not have to be worn only around the wrist.  The Misfit Shine can be worn on the Shirt, Shoes, Belt, as a Necklace to any occasion. I wear mine around my wrist, and it looks like a nice watch, I forget it's even on. It also comes with a clasp that can be used to wear anywhere else.

Shine is exclusively available in additional colors at Best Buy including Silver, Black, Champagne and Topaz.

Shine Features: •Activity Tracking, •Steps, •Activities: Swimming, Biking, Tennis, etc., •Sleep, •Calories, •Clock, •Waterproof, •Extra Accessories (includes Magnet clip), •Leather Bands, •Sport band, •Necklace

Shine is a gorgeous device that will empower people to be more proactive about their personal health.

Width 27.5mm x Depth 3.3mm x Height 27.5mm with a weight of 9.4g. The device runs on a coin cell battery which lasts about 4 months. Shine is water-resistant for swimming.

Easily download the Shine App to Sync your Device. If you don't have an iphone, or an android, it can also connect to your computer to view your info it has tracked.  I had no problem setting the app up on my phone, once it was installed it was easy to track. I think this is a great gift for the Fitness Beginner, and Expert.  It's easy to use, and can even wear it in the shower!  When it says track everything, you really do track everything.

Get fit. Get inspired. Get the dirt. Vinnie Tortorich Fitness Confidential Book Review.

Find it on Amazon for $4.99
Fitness Confidential is a fantastic, detailed book about Vinnie Tortorich. The Angriest Trainers twenty-two years in the Personal Training Business. The more I read the book, the more I related, and enjoyed how real Vinnie really is. I don't think he's an angry person, but angry at the gimmics sold to people that are reaching out for help. He's genuine, eccentric, and I felt as if he want's his clients to achieve everything he knows they can. Even if it takes pushing them to do it, or being a shoulder to cry on. Sometimes that's really all a person needs is a better mindset to succeed.

The first thing I noticed was when he asked the manager of a hollywood movie star "does she have the weight to lose?" That alone shows that he cares about their health, not just about numbers. I also completely agree with what he has to say about the overly processed, and sugar coated foods that has infected the nation. It is nice to see a trainer not believe in the word Diet, but more so in healthier life style changes by staying away from sugars, and grains.

I was extremely impressed by the information that is packed in this 159 page book. I feel lied to, I've been to plenty of dieticians from when I had gestational diabetes while pregnant. Then I just had pancreasitis, and I've cut back on things like red meat, and high fat grains. This book flows, and breaks things down more real, than just a set equation like we are robots. Vinnie makes me remember, we are human, and need that inner, and outter help.

Fitness Condifential has became my Holy Grail of healthier living. I'm guilty of using that word "diet" way too much. After reading this, I've promised myself not to call it a diet anymore. Not to worry about what I ate today, because I do need to eat. The "Remapping" Chapter is my favorite. Vinnie growing up was picked on, and punished at school a lot, but he did not become a victim. He became a Victor by getting into sports, and even going to the gym to work out after school. I really love stories like this. He didn't just become a personal trainer like some do on those new Reality TV Trainer Shows. He did it because it helped build himself into a great person. He shares this knowledge in the book, and on youtube.

Each chapter explains what most of us are doing wrong with how we perceive diet, and exercise, and why we shouldn't think, or follow the fab diet's any more. The more I read, the more I am learning what has been wrong with my mentality this whole time with wanting to be healthier. Even from things like Calorie in, and out, to The Food Pyramid. Reading Fitness Condifential truely is like peeking inside the mind of a successful trainer, that isn't in it for the money, or to push his work out gear or protein bars. He also overcame Cancer, did Chemo, and rebuilt his muscles. He is real. The advice in this book is real. I really need to check out his radio shows now. You should read the book too.  I've left a lot out,  it's just packed with a lot of information, along with Vinnies personal experiences.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

KLUTCHClub, Get Ready For Summer Review & Giveaway

The month of Mays Get Ready for Summer KLUTCHclub was sponsored by Bright Pink, a nonprofit organization for preventention and early detection of breast & ovarian cancer. I think that was such a great cause, and really, well worth the subscription price to be a supporter of Bright Pink.

This is for my ladies out there, Here are Five Easy Steps To Do A Self Breast Exam. Prevention really is key, and we do need to be healthy in all aspects of life. Just because you think you're fine doesnt mean you are, you should still get yearly exams.

There was "More Than $100 of Products To Get You Ready!" in this months box.

First thing I tried when I opened the box was the ONE Coconut Water. Coconut water is full of electrolytes, and vitamins. I didn't like the coconut water warm, so I put the remaining into the fridge. Once it was cold, it wasn't bad, I could taste the sweetness, warm made it taste bitter.

Then I tried the Think Thin protein bars, The Chocolate Dipped Mixed Nuts Crunch Bar was just amazing, and had 10g of protein, and 4 grams of fiber. The Chunky Peanut Butter Bar had 20 grams of Protein, and 5 grams of fiber. They were a great treat with half the calories of a candy bar. Both bars were full of nuts, and did not taste at all like they were "overly" healthy for you. I would love to try more of the Think Thin bars.

I've been using the Hydroxatone’s Instant Effect 90 Second Wrinkle Reducer for a couple weeks now. My skin feels tighter, and I would like to believe I don't look thirty yet. It is softer, my face is glowing, and all I've been doing is washing, and using the serum.

Also in the kit there were digital $25.00 giftcards to Moving Comfort sports bras (Two of them, One for you, and one to share with a friend), also a YOGA Download for a free class.

The subscription price for a month for Klutch Klub is $18.00, that's not a bad price, considering you get giftcards, downloads, beauty products, and healthy snack alternatives. 10% of what was made went back to

Mays box was wonderful, I am also excited to announce I get to do a giveaway for one lucky follower! You can too try KlutchClub.

Only open to US, Residents.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

My Morning Breakfast Routine.

These are the ingredients to my breakfast, Sometimes the fruit choice changes, but usually it's always the same ingredients.


1/2 cup of Milk (I usually use Soy, or Almond)

1/2 cup of Frozen fruit (today it was Blueberries)

1 serving of 60g Mocha Protein. It's just a scoop.

3 tsp of Instant coffee (I love coffee)

1 tsp chia seeds (gives it a nutty flavor, also great source of fiber)

If you are worried about calories in your breakfast you really shouldn't be, The milk, and fruit have about 100 calories a piece, and the protein powder has 170. So to be FULL, and have your source of vitamins for the morning on just 370 calories is a GREAT breakfast.

You should really give this a try for a week. It really is healthy, and keeps your body fueled.
