How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

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
