Health and wellness have always played a big part in my life, and ever since having baby Harrison, I’ve tried to make it even more of a priority. It’s honestly an escape for me and makes me feel the most like me when I’m making taking care of myself in this way. And for 2021 goals/resolutions, I made a commitment to continue prioritizing my health. I also want to be sure I’m taking care of myself so I can be the best version of myself for Michael and the kids. A tool I’ve been using to help me do this is the Dara Smart Scale from FitTrack.
I decided to use the Dara Smart Scale from FitTrack because it provides SO much information about your body. Of course it tells you your weight, but that’s not what this process is about for me. I want to know that I’m getting stronger and this scale reports not only your muscle rate but your body fat percentage, bone mass, BMI and so many more indicators! The best part is when you step on the scale, you use a free app downloaded onto your phone and all the information automatically syncs right to it! It makes tracking over days/week/months super easy.
My favorite metric of the scale/app is probably the body water percentage. It shows you your body’s water percentage in relation to your body composition and in the app, it tells you if your water percentage is low, standard or high. AKA if you need to drink more water or if you have enough in relation to your body composition. It really puts the importance of drinking water in perspective and has shown me that it’s not just this arbitrary thing but something that truly affects your body. I also learned in the app that maintaining the correct body water percentage can boost the body’s ability to burn fat, which increases the metabolic rate – pretty fascinating, right?!
Lastly, a big part of my journey over the last six months has also been postpartum nutrition. Especially while breastfeeding it’s so important to make sure I’m getting enough high-quality protein, which is something this scale from FitTrack also helps me stay on top of. One of the metrics it records when you step on it is protein rate and it will tell you in the app based on the low, standard or high measurements which area your protein falls into. This way if I fall into the low or the lower end of standard, I know right away I need to start incorporating more protein into my diet.
I wanted to share the FitTrack scale with you guys because I know so many of you share the passion I have for health and wellness, and to have a tool like this at home has been so helpful for me. This scale and the free app it uses to record and store your data is amazing and I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking to keep on track with their New Year’s health and wellness goals. It’s like the accountability partner I never knew I needed!
