Keeping Track of Your Busy Day Just Got More Fashionable
As a busy working mom it is pretty difficult to keep track of time much less keep track of steps taken, calories burned and miles walked. Oh, I know I am burning calories and walking and sometimes running more steps than I care to count but I never was one to keep track. Perhaps it was because many of the trackers sold on the market were not ‘pretty’ or looked bulky and simply unattractive. Why would I want to wear a klunky bracelet or band on my wrist to keep count of steps and calories?

That is a question that I always asked myself, especially after going through my health transformation. I saw many women wearing such tracking devices and although they were interesting and kept track of steps, calories and more, they were not attractive. That was until I was approached by Mira to try their new ‘pretty’ tracker. Yes, you read that correctly, Mira created a ‘pretty’ tracker for women like me, who were interested in keeping track of their healthy progress but didn’t want to sport a klunky band on their wrist.

Mira is like no other tracker. I’ve asked many women about their trackers and researched many online and have not found any that are like this particular one. This tracker is so much more than numbers. The unique part about Mira is that it gives you insights based on your daily activities and the more you wear the tracker, the more Mira gets to know you. Based on your fitness patterns, boosts of inspirations are given to keep you motivated throughout the day. We all need a boost of inspiration throughout our busy days and Mira is great at giving you the boost necessary to keep you on your healthy journey.
