FitBit Flex + Milk: A Marriage of Tech & Food Made In Heaven #GotMilkGotProtein

I'm  a spokesperson on behalf the Protein Fight Club Milk Mustache Campaign.  I have been compensated for this post. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

Having a high protein breakfast in the morning has help me tremendously to stay fuller longer.  Sticking to healthy morning routines like drinking 8oz of milk  is helping achieve my new years goals.  Drinking milk is  one of  the many small changes you can make each day that can add up to a healthy lifestyle. To help me further track these small changes that add up to success, our friends at FitBit and the Milk Mustache Campaign has provided me with a new Fitbit Flex.  If you are unfamiliar with Fitbit this is a stylish activity and sleep-tracking wristband that offers a slim, minimalistic design for people that are goal-oriented and want more flexibility in accessorizing; tracks steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, active minutes and sleep; syncs wirelessly to leading mobile devices and to your computer ($99.95) 



Fitbit Flex is also the first wristband on the market to sync wirelessly and automatically with Bluetooth 4.0


  • Bluetooth 4.0 allows wireless, automatic syncing: Flex stats sync wirelessly to leading mobile phones and tablets so progress is always up to date without having to plug in – it's easy to stay on top of your stats and track to your goals
  • Android users simply tap the NFC-enabled Flex to a phone to launch the Fitbit app



Motivational online & mobile tools (iPhone & Android apps)

  • Stay motivated with notifications, badges and leaderboards; cheer, taunt and direct message your friends throughout the day – reach your goals faster with a little friendly competition
  • Users with one or more friends tend to be 27% more active than those without friends
  • Integrates with 30+ health and fitness apps (i.e., Endomondo, LoseIt, MapMyFitness, MyFitnessPal and Sparkpeople) -- more than any of its competitors
Monitors sleep and features silent wake alarm

  • Measures sleep quality (hours slept, times you were restless or awake) and wakes you with a silent alarm without disturbing your partner
