Get Moving and Stay on the Right Track: Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker Giveaway

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


Believe it or not, it’s already mid-November and we are headed for what I like to call the “Holiday Eating Season.” For me, it’s the time period from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve, but for many it begins with Halloween. We all get busy and distracted with parties, dinners, shopping, baking, family activities, and end up staying up too late, eating more and exercising less. Sound familiar?

Rather than wait to make a New Year’s health, sleep or weight loss resolution, you can use a fitness tracker to help stay on the right track starting right now. The Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker is a stylish accessory that reminds you to move, tracks your sleep, lets you log your food and more.

Stay motivated by tracking all-day activity like steps, distance, calories burned and active minutes, and get credit for your workouts with Smart Track automatic exercise recognition. At night, track your sleep and set a silent alarm to wake better and get your best rest.

No matter where you’re headed, the easy-to-read OLED screen keeps your goals in focus with stats, time, and call or text notifications on display. It’s sweat, rain, splash proof and you can even wear it in the shower, so it’s always with you. A wide range of accessory wristbands in metal, leather and sport help you find the right style for every occasion.

The Alta also makes a GREAT gift for just about everyone on your holiday gift list. Check out the Fitbit Alta to browse all the band colors, accessories, features and learn more.


As a thank you to all our readers and online followers, we want to help you stay on track with your wellness goals this holiday season by hosting a giveaway. One lucky person will WIN a Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker! We’ve partnered with a small group of bloggers who’ve all kicked in to help make this giveaway possible.

Woof Woof Papa and I just finished our second week on the Nutrisystem weight loss program and we’re already starting to see results. Last week I told you about what to expect when your first Nutrisystem food order arrives and how we got started by organizing everything. Although it can seem overwhelming at first, we’ve been pleasantly surprised at how simple the system is to follow!

What’s really been helping us learn the program and stay on top of everything is all the fun and easy to use apps, trackers and other online tools Nutrisystem provides for members. I’ve already done a quick live chat with an online counselor when I had a question about my favorite Chobani yogurt and she was super friendly and helpful (more exciting news about Chobani soon!!!).

Chat with Nutrisystem counselor

What I like most so far is how I can log my info on either my laptop, iPad or phone depending where I am and what I’m doing…once you’ve created your online profile, it all syncs together to save the information in one place! So helpful since keeping tabs on what you eat and when is essential to staying on track. It’s not necessary to memorize everything since it’s all laid out so nicely, that the log also serves as a meal planner. You can use it to decide what to eat by browsing the options, and then record what you ate by adding items.  Here’s what the phone app looks like when you are in the meal planner section:
