A Fashion Fit

We're just a few days in to 2015 and I can't help but think how the gym will be packed during the first weeks in January which is why you won't find me there well until the end of the month  (one of my New Year's resolutions is to not make resolutions I can't keep).

I am aware that I still need to divulge my clothing sizes to a lot of PR people  stay healthy and get some exercise and so I make it to a point to walk a lot. And keeping track of how much walking I do is part of the ' stay healthy' bit. weekly is a great way to make sure I ca Still, it would be helpful if we all had a little helper to keep track of how much exercise we're getting in a day.

I mean, let's face it - if you're as driven by your career/business as any other Ambitionistas out there - between the early commute to work, the team meetings, the late nights hammering away at the computer, and finally dragging yourself home exhausted back home late at night - walking is probably the only exercise you can really incorporate into your life. By 9pm, the thought of going to the gym is the last thing on your mind and all you want to do is sink into bed while watching Downton Abbey on your iPad. New Year's resolutions be damned.

I like that the Tory Burch FitBit bracelet looks just like an elegant piece of jewelry.


So back to the walking. Walking to Starbucks for lunch doesn't count, or at least - it doesn't count if that's the only thing you do. You need to cumulatively walk about 10,000 steps a day or 70,000 steps a week to be considered moderately active. Enter the FitBit. I actually got a basic one when David Sedaris (one of my favorite writers BTW)  divulged at a UCLA Speakers event that he used it to maniacally make sure he walked a certain amount every day and eventually lost some weight because of this.

Well, my plain black FitBit was okay but I hated how it clashed with my outfits - like wearing gym clothes at smart cocktail party. So when I found out about Tory Burch for Fitbit  I almost wrote Ms. Burch a big THANK YOU email.  She even had the forethought to make these arm candies in 3 types of metals - gold, rose and classic silver:

Fashionable Fitness. 

With a simple double tap you can peek at your progress against your daily goals and perhaps the most pleasant part of it all -- at least for me -- is that the Tory Burch x Fitbit keeps monitors your sleep cycle and through silent alarms, helps teach you how to sleep more efficiently. Here's how it looks like on me with a couple of other outfits:

My only critique: If you type a lot, you may find yourself removing the bracelet to avoid the persistent click clack of metal against your keyboard and desk. Unfortunately, this meant that I had to slip off the bangle if I am typing furiously at my computer. A more practical option might be the pendant necklace (also in gold and rose) with an  open fretwork design.

PS: Don't be surprised if you suddenly find yourself walking to
the Starbucks a whopping five blocks further. Just for kicks.

    That’s a really, really cool bracelet, and it comes in 3 different colors!! how cool is that! Yes, Tory Burch is the best.. thanks for sharing this, I’m off to getting my own arm candies before the end of the day 🙂

  • Ahh, in my case, it’s hard to stay fit and still look fabulous after a whole day of work and house duties. My kids alone drive me crazy but I think running and chasing them around can be considered exercising, isn’t it? But to stay fashionable or at least pretty for my husband, now that’s another story. That’s why I’m so thankful to your blog because I get to learn a lot when it comes to maintaining composure and beauty amidst hard work. And thanks for the suggestions you share here, staying fit and fab has never been exciting!

  • MJ says:

    Wow Heidi, you’re looking great! and yes, fit! who needs new year resolutions and fitness gyms anyway.. Me, I don’t too… I think a little exercise at home and running to and from the office would help get me fit.. thanks for the Tory Burch suggestion 🙂

  • Leigh says:

    Sadly, walking is also the “sport” or form of exercise I can incorporate in my daily life. I should be thankful to have these two strong legs and feet to guide me to the shops and bars and clothing outlets when I need to stress-out..

  • Gabrielle says:

    Now that is indeed a very fashionable FitBit! Tory Burch is a genius! Those bracelets and pendants go well with any outfit you have.

  • Bridgette says:

    Gotta love a girl who could stay fit and still look fab and gorgeous with all the right accessories on her… You look great with your Tory Burch arm candies, Heidi!

  • Jenni Clark says:

    That pendant looks stunning.. I agree with you Heidi, bracelets have the tendency to get in the way when you type on your keyboard, the sound actually irritates me. Thanks for sharing this!

  • Clarisse says:

    I also used Fitbit before, to make sure my calorie and sugar intake are normal. I’m a little diabetic, like that and Fitbit helps me control my sweet urges. I like that it now comes in elegant designs 🙂

  • Steffi says:

    This is something new to me. I actually heard a lot about FitBit and I actually kind of like to have one for myself to help me with my health issues, more importantly about my sleeping patterns. Tory Burch FitBit looks awesome!

  • Ash says:

    My friends tell me to hit the gym if I could because I’m bound to get sick with my weight and because of my eating habits… yes, I’ve actually a lot of weight since New year, but well, I really couldn’t bring myself to the gym with my hectic work schedule. Now I guess I have to do something about my eating habit.. Maybe FitBit can help me out too!

  • Jane says:

    I like that Tory Burch for Fitbit Metal Hinged Bracelet, I could very well use it at work and in the gym. Good thing I work outside, I mean now inside an office typing away, I work with agents and models, so these armcandies would come in handy!

  • wenamhine says:

    Fashionable Fitness you say? I’m all for it. I’d like very much to look good and also feel good about myself. This fitbit by Tory Burch would be highly recommended 🙂

  • Franceska R. says:

    I really like those fashionable FitBit bracelets! So elegant 🙂

  • Susan Armstrong says:

    Oh that’s splendid! Now I wouldnt have to worry about my outfit when I wear a Fitbit just like that gorgeous pendant. I love it!

  • kylie rachel says:

    I prefer the pendant styled Fitbit too, more than the bracelet. Thanks for telling us about this. Tory Burch is a genius, indeed!

  • Taylor G. says:

    Whoa, that pendant Fitbit is gorgeous!

  • Kristine says:

    I have had my Fitbit tracker for yeas and it’s always been a great help to me, as it helps track my activities such as the number of steps I’ve walked in a day. It helps me a lot with my heart condition. And after that Tory Burch fitbit of yours, I think I’m gonna try having that too, because it looks really elegant and inconspicuous.

  • Sophie says:

    Aww, this is such a nice bracelet. I like that it’s very stylish and can be worn with dresses as compared to my previous fitbit holders that match only my sports gear.

  • Jasmine says:

    I found a real nice gold plated Tory Burch fitbit just like yours in Neiman Marcus. I like to call it my own wearable technology!

  • Fatima says:

    I usually go to gym after office hours. I like to still stay alert and fit at the end of the day. My Fitbit helps me a lot with my pulses and monitoring my heartbeats. With that Tory Burch fitbit, I think it’s high time I upgrade 🙂

  • Valerie says:

    I got mine (Tory Burch Fitbit) a couple of weeks ago and it has garnered a lot of ohhs and ahhs in the office as well as in the gym. I got the pendant styled fitbit, really gorgeous and goes well with my necklaces.

  • Courtney says:

    Oh, I haven’t heard about this. I can’t believe that stunning pendant and bracelets are fitbits. I must grab these for my own so I look good in and out of the gym while still checking my sugar levels. Thanks!

  • Angelique says:

    That’s a fashionable idea, indeed! Now I can pair my office clothes with Tory Burch fitbits, especially the bracelets, I really like it.

    A Fashion Fitbit… hmm, why not? I like this idea, the pendant itself looks elegant enough like a jewelry!

    My friend is a serious gym rat and she constantly checks her BP and sugar and water intake. I got this for her and thought I was giving her jewelry. She’s a hoot!

  • Aaliyah Jane says:

    I got this right after my doc told me to keep in shape following the birth of my baby 3 months ago. I liked this Tory Burch x Fitbit a lot, it keeps me informed of my heartbeat and other health issues. Thanks for recommending this, it sure doesn’t look like fitbit at all 🙂 it’s so glam!
